Real-time tools to enhance patient safety
LiveData, a provider of data integration and display technology services, has announced that The Johns Hopkins Hospital has chosen its OR-Dashboard to advance patient safety and increase operating room efficiency at the medical center.
According to LiveData, OR-Dashboard will provide the hospital with an approach toward ensuring compliance with its patient safety initiatives. OR-Dashboard offers the OR team real-time tools, such as checklists and reminders, along with display of essential case information.
LiveData said that the system that includes displays and infrastructure components developed by KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, LiveData OR-Dashboard captures, synchronizes, and integrates data from any medical device or system, then transforms and presents it as meaningful information on easy-to-read graphic displays, in step with the perioperative workflow.
The Johns Hopkins installation represents a step towards the Patient-Aware Operating Room, the integration of LiveData OR-Dashboard and KARL STORZ OR1 technologies. Delivering all relevant case information, images and data, to the entire OR team, the Patient-Aware OR makes vital information pervasive that the OR becomes patient-aware, presenting crucial information on the wall, in the sterile field, and even over the hospital’s secure intranet, added LiveData.
Jeffrey Robbins, CEO of LiveData, said: Johns Hopkins has a long-standing and well-earned reputation as a leader in patient safety and OR team communication. Its success is a world model, and implementing the OR-Dashboard system will take this leadership to the next level.
