LiveData and the NYP Wall of Knowledge

Orthopaedic surgeon William Macaulay shows how the Wall of Knowledge impacts the work of OR teams and medical education. Dr. Macaulay is a professor of clinical orthopaedic surgery, advisory dean for the College of Physicians & Surgeons, and director of the Center for Hip and Knee Replacement at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia. The Wall of Knowledge was initially implemented in 2 pilot ORs at Columbia University Medical Center and 2 at Weill Cornell Medical Center, and later expanded to 4 ORs in Weill Cornell's Advanced Therapeutic Services Center.

For hospitals interested in their own Wall of Knowledge, LiveData now offers a complete package via KARL STORZ. Please contact LiveData for more information.
