Staff, news services

Zimmer Biomet said Tuesday it debuted first-of-its-kind artificial intelligence capabilities for an Omni Suite platform designed to help optimize surgical workflow.

The Omni Suite Intelligent Operating Room technology should improve the efficiency of joint replacement surgery procedures, a news release said.

The new artificial intelligence, or AI feature, uses cameras to automatically recognize and timestamp key operating room workflow milestones, including patient entry and exit, door count, the start and stop of anesthesia, surgery, and cleaning, Zimmer Biomet said.

The platform guides surgical teams, based on real-time workflow metrics.
