Union City, Calif., (PRWEB) August 30, 2017
Mark DeSilets, vice president of R&D at Mizuho OSI®, manufacturer of specialty surgical tables, pressure management solutions, and table specific patient care kits, will speak at the 2017 Stanford Medicine X conference. DeSilets’ oral presentation, “i2OR: The Intelligent Integrated Operating Room of the Future,” will take place on September 16, 2017 at 4:25 p.m.
The conference will take place at Stanford University on September 15-17, 2017. It focuses on the intersection of health and technology and explores how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine. DeSilets’ presentation will discuss benefits of the integrated operating room and how tying OR systems into an interconnected cooperating group will help improve workflow and patient outcomes.
“Today’s operating room is filled with an incredible collection of high-tech equipment designed to improve performance and patient outcomes. The challenge facing medical professionals in the operating room is that each technology system functions autonomously and therefore doesn’t have the ability to connect and exchange information,” said Mark DeSilets, Vice President of R&D, Mizuho OSI. “By working together, medical professionals and medical device designers can offer ways for devices to share information with one another to improve patient care. I look forward to sharing my vision for how we can integrate the OR and patient experiences cohesively.”
