Brainlab showcased its fully integrated Digital OR at the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Global Surgical Conference & Expo in Boston. The digital operating room configuration from Brainlab includes Buzz, the next generation OR centralized information hub.

Buzz is part of the larger Digital OR technology concept from Brainlab that aims to streamline workflows with IP-based video routing as well as robust integration with HIS and PACS VNAs. With an easy to use smartphone-like user interface, Buzz integrates the workflows of all OR staff, including nurses. The system features automatic pre-fetching of patient data, surgical checklists, DICOM Viewer for on-the-fly 3D reconstructions, as well as streaming and conferencing capabilities.

Leading institutions around the world such as Medisch Spectrum Twente in the Netherlands, have opted for advanced, future-proof Brainlab Digital OR solutions that simplify access to clinical information. Adding to the already 400+ digitally integrated operating rooms globally, University Hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar in Munich is installing Brainlab Digital OR technology in eight new operating rooms this summer.

Buzz 2.0 was scheduled to be released in April. It was not available for sale at press time and will not be available until all applicable approvals have been attained.
