Patient Perspectives on the Intelligent Operating Room

Jennifer Yule.
Lecturer in Marketing, Business School

The intelligent operating room (IOR) where digital technology inputs can assist human team members through pre, intra and postoperative stages of surgery is becoming a reality. However, there is a critical gap in the development and application of this technology regarding the patients’ perspective on the collection, use and application of data in the IOR. The IOR has the potential to impact patient outcomes and inherently involves the patient at the centre of the data gathering exercise, therefore the patient perspective should be integral to technological developments. The aim of the project is to establish a multidisciplinary research network leveraging insights from multiple stakeholders to develop a conceptual framework of patient-centred perspectives on digital data capture in the OR.
