Product description and innovation synopsis:
OR Cockpit+ is a real-time visual management system for surgery that improves patient safety and process efficiency through increased awareness and the adjustment of behavior and work-flow processes. With this system, surgical teams benefit from smart real-time information, dynamic safety protocols and increased work-flow control, all through one central system. OR Cockpit+ enables unrivaled patient safety and productivity levels, as well as analysis and reports on any performance parameter.
Response to the question: What sets this product apart from others available in the industry?
The OR Cockpit+ system integrates data from EMR/EHR (e.g. EPIC, Cerner), major OR equipment and systems. It displays real-time essential information to all clinical staff. The tool displays leading indicators during the case, enabling the team to make course corrections to improve patient outcomes. The tool is powerful in shaping behavior as it assigns the team a “Patient Safety Score” at the end of each case.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
The technology in OR Cockpit+ provides hospitals protocol features to ensure patient safety and compliance. Staff can be alerted when a set parameter is broken or when a certain patient safety protocol is in place for a given procedure. The database will store information on each procedure giving department and hospital administrators a patient safety score for each procedure. Through the use of real-time analytics, monitoring and reporting features allow for staff to continuously develop and improve their quality of care and patient safety. This drives better protocol which can reduce the number of surgical site infections and associated readmissions.
