Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, Mo, has deployed LiveData‘s advanced patient safety platform, OR-Dashboard. The installation, which went live early in May in all five of Saint Luke’s cardiac operating rooms, integrates information from critical clinical processes in the OR, enhancing overall workflow and focus on patient-centered care.

In combining the strengths of the OR1 suite from KARL STORZ Endoscopy America with LiveData OR-Dashboard, the system gives the surgical team a complete picture of what is going on in the operating room precisely as it is happening. The Saint Luke’s installation includes the latest LiveData innovation, Active Time Out, which automates the safe surgery checklists that are prescribed by the World Health Organization, the Joint Commission, and other health care groups.

LiveData OR-Dashboard presents essential information about the patient and surgical case to the entire OR team in real-time. OR-Dashboard integrates data from patient records, administrative systems, physiological monitors, and medical devices, and synchronizes the information with OR workflow. In OR1 suites, large wall-mounted screens or boom-mounted displays ensure that OR-Dashboard is visible to the whole team.
