Healthcare is becoming increasingly high-tech.
Omnimed is creating technology for the “smart operating room” that can help doctors.
“It uses a combination of technologies such as artificial intelligence, computer vision, machine learning to capture millions of data points per minute,” said Omnimed CEO Nick Moran.
The technology can detect movement, ensure room sterilization and alert staff when a device is dropped.
The company believes the technology will lead to better patient outcomes and reduce worker burnout.
“This is a win for staff, nurses, physicians and hospital systems,” said Mark Freeman, Omnimed’s chief medical officer.
Omnimed is working with other technology companies and Johns Hopkins University on “smart operating room” technology.
This has already been implemented in many states. The technology is expected to be rolled out nationwide in January.
