The Operating Room of the Future (ORF) Project
OR-Dashboard was initially developed for the ORF at Massachusetts General Hospital. Pioneered by the Center for the Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT
), the ORF
is a living laboratory that explores new technology platforms and systems of care for performing minimally invasive surgical procedures. Accurate data capture and analysis, multidisciplinary teamwork, and thoughtful integration of technology are the building blocks in this environment that optimizes patient safety and comfort, staff satisfaction, and financial efficiency.
The ORF, with its parallel workflow, is characterized by a unique set of factors that called for development of a real-time patient-system. WIth SBIR funding from the US Army, LiveData and MGH collaborated in implementing this system for the ORF. The groundbreaking research led to development of what became known as LiveData OR-Dashboard, now used in hospitals across the US.
