Medial Insights Team Event 2022

Medical Insights leaving footprints

On September 15th, the Medical Insights team event took place in the incredible Feldis mountains.

We could not have chosen a better place for this event that was marked essentially by team unity, new ideas, paths and certainties. Surrounded by the inspiring green of the Swiss mountains, we were sure that 2023 will be a year of great achievements and that we will continue to leave footprints, not only in the Swiss mountains, but also in future developments.

We´ve moved!

On 1st July, the Insights MD team has officially moved to their new offices based on the Novartis Campus in Basel.

The Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area in partnership with the biotech and pharma group Novartis supports start-ups and established companies from the fields of digital health and personalized medicine. The objective is to establish a closeness between start-ups and the scientists from Novartis.

What a better place for Insights MD to carry on innovating, inspiring and supporting surgeons all around the world to connect, exchange and learn.

Looking forward to another footprint on our journey!


Say hello to the all-new myAO!

The myAO interface has been redesigned—and relaunched—to be more intuitive and provide quick access to the features most relevant to surgeons: case sharing, posting, accessing groups, and scientific expertise.

At the end of June 2021, myAO’s brand-new interface was revealed. With over 25,000 users and a growth rate of nearly 500 percent in 2020, myAO is one of the fastest growing, most relevant digital networks of trauma and orthopedic surgeons worldwide.

For the new features, the myAO development team worked closely with over 20 surgeons—at various stages in their careers and representing all AO clinical divisions—to identify key enhancements and features needed to make myAO the essential tool for any surgeon worldwide.

As a result, myAO’s interface has become a lot more intuitive, now providing quick access to the application’s top features: posting, case sharing, access to groups of verified surgeons, and medical knowledge.

  • Share cases using a structure template and tagging functions, with the option of specifically separating pre-op, intra-op, post-op, and clinical/radiographic follow-up images.
  • The option to flag a case with “I need advice” to quickly get feedback from the surgeons’ network
  • Enhanced group functionality providing quick and easy access directly from the home screen: Surgeons can create their own public or private groups to share their expertise by posting clinical cases, images, documents, or links.
  • Get scientific article recommendations from selected peers.
  • Access the AO’s educational videos and surgery reference, as well as the leading journals.
  • Why not create your own group with your residents, fellows, or your AO network of expert friends? Interact and engage on myAO with your peers.

Access myAO ( for free on dedicated apps for iPhone, Android, and the web.

Introducing your Continuous Professional Development Tracker

INSIGHTS is proud to announce the launch of the Continuous Professional Development Tracker – Your online record of your actions, endeavours and achievements on INSIGHTS.

Image: my activities

Available now, the CPD Tracker is a dynamic record and overview of your ongoing professional learning and training activities, like article readings and shares, video views, or course participations. It allows you to monitor your continuous learning efforts and achievements and compare yourself to prior periods and peers. In addition, it is designed to provide you with continuous guidance on your individual learning and professional pathway, just like a GPS does.

You are in full control of what is tracked and saved in your record, and you can easily delete past activity from it. Soon, you will be able to also grant permissions to other users and third parties (like education providers or employers) to access all or parts of your CPD Tracker, and you will also have the ability to export and download your CPD Tracker in an easy-to-share format.
