One secret to faster, safer, and more accurate orthopedic surgeries? Extensive preoperative planning for orthopedics. While it’s common for medical device companies, surgeons, and hospitals to utilize pre-op planning software and rely on this process, technology in this space is quickly changing.
Orthopedic surgery needs a more efficient medical device supply network
AI for inventory management could be a strategic solution
Patient specific implants can reduce the number of parts moving, and artificial intelligence can help automate the design process
The introduction of artificial intelligence is effecting a change in musculoskeletal medicine – an evolution from traditional orthopedic surgery into Intelligent Surgery
Intelligent Surgery is the use of artificial intelligence to enhance implant design, expedite surgical technique, optimize inventory logistics, and simplify clinical workflows, by connecting and learning from patient data during each step of the surgical care continuum.
- Artificial intelligence is built on strong data strategies, but exchanging protected health information through an EHR system is a challenge.
- Electronic health records are restricted by privacy compliance and low device interoperability.
- Technology companies are developing ways to collect and apply data throughout clinical workflows.
