LiveData offers dashboard view of ORs for New York hospital
Dec. 3—New York-Presbyterian Hospital has deployed LiveData's visually integrated operating room (VIOR) system in four operating rooms at two of its major medical centers: New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

The VIOR system harnesses available information resources – from information systems, medical devices, surgical video, PACS, and more – to deliver a comprehensive picture of the surgical case, updated in real time to the OR team, according to the Cambridge, Mass.-based LiveData.

New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian hospital in the U.S., with 2,335 beds and provides state-of-the-art inpatient, ambulatory and preventive care in all areas of medicine at five major centers throughout New York.

These initial implementations in the orthopedic and neurosurgery ORs at the Columbia center and in the urology and gastrointestinal surgery ORs at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University will enable the hospital to address workflow requirements across a wide range of surgical environments, LiveData said.
