【White Paper】Technological Advancements and Trends of Interoperability in the Operating Room



Surgery is consistently subject to innovations in both medical and technological fields, as this is the core unit of the patient care system. Through context awareness, the operating room (OR) staff can be ready with the available information displayed in the most suitable way at each time point during the surgical procedure. Contextual support is achieved in an OR by tracking events and activities through automatic signal recognition available from different OR tools and systems. These revolutionized advancements have turned conventional ORs into the smart ORs today.
