OP 4.1 – The operating room of the future

The Urological Clinic of Heidelberg University Hospital is co-developing a prototype for software and business innovation in the operation room, together with DKFZ and SAP, Siemens Healthineers, KARL STORZ and mbits. This intelligent software and business platform consolidates process- and patient data of multiple sources in the operation environment. The SAP Cloud based platform is open and expandable and allows the integration of distinct medical devices and apps. A dashboard transmits all relevant information to the surgical team at the right time – a digital operation assistant, supporting the surgeon and enabling navigated precision surgery. The platform based business models offer market access even to small and mid-size companies.
