About OrthoPedic Loop

OrthoPedic Loop is a dedicated platform facilitating seamless communication among medical equipment manufacturers, orthopedic surgeons, and related businesses. The private platform streamlines collaboration, offering features such as online connectivity, live streaming, video calls, event hosting, polls, and networking within the Surgeon Community.


  • OrthoPedic Loop was looking to build a unified platform for surgeons, medical equipment manufacturers,  and related businesses. 
  • Surgeons faced challenges connecting online with manufacturers to source equipment for their operational requirements.
  • Further, collaboration with such manufacturers required communication through online channels, sharing surgery videos, and having live calls.
  • Creating a unified platform and resolving fragmented communication required reliable architecture.
  • The infrastructure for the platform must be able to accommodate a high amount of user-generated content and enable live streaming for collaborations of healthcare professionals
  • With data-sharing capabilities for surgeons, the platform also needed a robust and secure storage system to store patient data.
  • OrthoPedic Loop also needed a platform that is compliant with data regulations and ensures data security
  • Maintaining scalability and ensuring load-handling capabilities for the healthcare collaboration platform was challenging.

Proposed Solution & Architecture

  • Our team helped OrthoPedic Loop build a reliable platform for collaborating with surgeons and healthcare equipment manufacturers.
  • First, Simform experts leverage Route 53 for efficient domain management, ensuring seamless and reliable access to the platform.
  • Further, we ensured enhanced user experience through AWS CloudFront and low-latency content delivery on the platform.
  • Our team used Amazon S3 for secure and compliant medical data storage, ensuring compliance with major data regulations.
  • We streamlined platform deployment with AWS Elastic Beanstalk, enabling rapid releases.
  • Our team employed Amazon ECS to containerize workloads and ensure higher load-handling capabilities.
  • Further, we used Application Load Balancer(ALB) for efficient traffic distribution, ensuring the system was not overwhelmed due to intensive workloads.
  • Our team secures connections for the healthcare platform with SSL/TLS certificate management leveraging AWS Certificate Manager.
  • Lastly, to ensure platform performance is up to the expected level, we Implemented Amazon CloudWatch for continuous monitoring, enhancing system health and performance visibility.

Metrics for success

  • OrthoPedic Loop achieved 99.9% uptime for the healthcare collaboration platform.
  • It realized a 12% reduction in operational costs, demonstrating resource optimization.
  • OrthoPedic Loop improved global connectivity and collaboration through the platform, increasing active user engagement by 30%.
