NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City has gone live with a real-time data integration and display product in the OR from Cambridge, Mass.-based LiveData Inc.

The Visually Integrated Operating Room (VIOR) harnesses available information resources — information systems, medical devices, surgical video, PACS systems, etc. — to deliver a comprehensive picture of the surgical case, updated in real time, says the company.

Supporting 2,335 beds, NewYork-Presbyterian has implemented the VIOR in four operating rooms located at its two major medical centers: orthopedic and neurosurgery ORs at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center; and at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center in urology and gastrointestinal surgery ORs.

LiveData says New York-Presbyterian implemented the product in collaboration with audio-visual systems partner York Telecom (Eatontown, N.J.), and incorporates voice and video communications. York Telecom's A/V routing and control enables the bidirectional presentation of video information, the company states.
