Healthcare has long lagged behind other industries in embracing the most current tech developments. Recently, however, broader adoption of Internet of Things technology in healthcare has paved the way for the data-integrated OR, which uses IoT technology to help surgical staff reduce their administrative overhead, ensure best practices, and more acutely focus on delivering quality care.
As this is occurring, healthcare providers around the world are also making a push towards value-based care. A response to the exorbitant cost of healthcare, value-based-care systems seek to improve patient outcomes while also reducing hospital costs.
Because the OR is where hospitals make the majority of their revenue (and where patients also face the greatest risk of complications) it’s of little surprise that both these trends occur in conjunction with one another. IoT technologies help surgeons meet the demands of increasingly complex medical procedures while also addressing the rising cost of healthcare.
