In-theater workflow enhancements includes collecting various data during the surgery is being performed. My original plan was to have a simple page that would show a timer and allow users to add various data as the surgery continues.
But later I realized that it’s not practical to have someone typing at a computer during a surgery. Silly me. The better approach, I think, is to let the data be recorded after the surgery is performed – add it to the post-operative data.
This is the case with one of the existing implementations that I saw. They have a post-ops form with fields to enter fluids administered during the procedure, specimens collected and such.
