Every day, your OR teams use numerous real-world products and evidence-based techniques to better ensure every patient’s safety. However, when adverse events or near misses occur, or when process improvements are sought to improve patient safety, it’s not easy to generate usable data that can be analyzed and acted upon. Digital technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are helping facilities access and analyze much more data than ever before. It’s all part of an emerging environment in which digital technologies enable more precise, efficient and accurate surgeries with a higher degree of safety.
