Insights in the progress of surgical procedures is needed to improve the scheduling and optimal use of OR’s. Moreover, monitoring the use of surgical devices is desired to create a safer environment in terms of competences and qualifications of the OR staff. This project is aiming to develop a monitoring system for OR devices. The data collected with the monitoring system is used subsequently to research the differences in use of devices (for staff’s training purposes) and to recognize the progress of surgery (for planning optimization purposes).
The project is a collaboration of TU Delft with Reinier de Graaf Gasthuis and is funded by DSW Zorgverzekeraar.
