LiveData to Showcase Safe Surgery Checklist Innovation for Situational Awareness and Patient Safety at IHI Patient Safety Congress 2024

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ActiveTimeOutLiveData, a surgical capacity optimization solution company, today announced that it will demonstrate LiveData OR-Dashboard™ with Active Time Out®, the company’s innovative solution that enables real-time data collection and enhances patient safety, at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Patient Safety Congress, being held May 14-16, 2024, in Orlando, Florida.

OR-Dashboard with Active Time Out improves situational awareness by integrating patient information from a hospital’s electronic health record (EHR) to provide a continuously updated, real-time view of the surgical case from operating room (OR) setup through the surgical procedure to OR cleaning. It improves surgical safety by providing a patented Active Time Out digital safe surgery checklist that The Joint Commission has recognized as a leading practice. This innovative approach encourages active participation by everyone on the surgical team to shine a light on near misses. Uniquely, OR-Dashboard lets circulating nurses capture important case milestones, such as patient in/out, surgery start/stop, and closing, directly and automatically into the patient’s record in the EHR using a handheld “clicker.”

LiveData Director of Perioperative Operational Excellence Aileen Killen, Ph.D., RN will present an Innovation Theater discussion, “More Effective Timeouts Are Just a Click Away,” on Wednesday, May 15, at 12:30 p.m. in the Congress Hall. Her presentation will conclude with a fun audience participation activity demonstrating how convenient and effective a digital safe surgery checklist can be.

“I’m looking forward to sharing our innovative solution for increasing situational awareness and, by extension, patient safety,” said Killen. “As partners with the healthcare community, we share hospitals’ commitment to improving growth, transparency, efficiency, and safety.”

LiveData will demo OR-Dashboard with Active Time Out in Booth 408 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida, during conference hours.
