Product presentation

Surgery staff, medical devices providers and research labs need to track the workflow of the surgical procedures for practice improvement, training, QC, or research. Paper-free documentation is an increasing requirement. But digital information should be easy to capture, store, edit, process and share.

The b<>com *Surgery Workflow Toolbox* [annotate] makes it possible to create surgical process models by annotating surgical videos and signals (vital signs, robotics).

Key features

  • Quickly create, edit and share the surgery workflow elements on a video or signals timeline.
  • Maintain consistency of procedure language thanks to a basic surgery procedure ontology describing the most common terms of use for surgery applications.
  • Compare sets of surgical procedure recordings thanks to the data analytics module.

Benefits

  • Improve and share with surgical communities the way to perform a surgery procedure
  • Empower the surgical team (e.g. reducing adverse events)
  • Optimize surgical processes thanks to analytics results
  • Create reference bases for the automatic recognition of videos (machine / deep learning results).

How it works

Annotation tool:

  • Select workflow elements: human participants with body parts, phases, steps, actions, status, instruments, etc.
  • Specify the durations of actions

Surgery procedure vocabulary:

  • Define and select phases and steps names
  • Define and select terms to use (ex: effector, verb, instrument)

Observation tool:

  • Visualize whole surgery procedure phases and steps
  • Visualize vital signs/robotics signals synchronized with video and/or signals

Analytics tool:

  • Cross-data analytics: resources & timing, box plot
  • Data extraction: time (h, mn), day, month, year, participants role, instrument, body part, action, phase, step
