Action or Inaction in the OR Can Create Problems After Surgery

In a hectic, ever-changing OR environment, it’s challenging to track and trend data essential for making clinical decisions. Conditions can be difficult to detect when continually switching between screens to scan for relative changes. And rapid actions in the OR can have significant postoperative repercussions for patients and the total cost of care.
