Ann Arbor, Mich.-based St. Joseph Mercy Hospital (SJMH), part of the six-hospital Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, has installed OR-Dashboard, a patient safety system from LiveData (Cambridge, Mass.).

According to the company, OR-Dashboard captures, synchronizes and integrates data from information systems and medical devices, and transforms and presents it on easy-to-read graphic displays, in step with the operation workflow. The system has been deployed in five of 18 operating rooms at SJMH, completing phase one of a broader rollout.

Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS) is a healthcare organization serving six counties in southeast Michigan. Its six hospitals are licensed for 1,613 beds and include five outpatient health centers, five urgent care facilities and more than 25 specialty centers. SJMHS is a member of Trinity Health, the nation’s fourth largest Catholic health care organization.
