The increasing number of minimally invasive surgical procedures performed is driving the demand for seamless digital integration in the operating rooms.
According to a new report series by iData Research (www.idataresearch.com), the leading global authority in medical device market research the total U.S. and European Markets for Video, High-Tech and Integrated Operating Rooms will grow to over $3.8 billion by 2019. Market growth is fuelled by the rising number of minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures performed, which has been accompanied by the increase in demand for integrated operating rooms (OR). “While the time and cost of setting up a digitalized OR is considerable, investment is expected to be recouped through lower average length of procedure times, more efficient use of OR time and surgeon recruitment,” says Dr. Zamanian, CEO of iData.
Other Key findings from the Video, High – Tech Integrated Operating Room Market Report Series
Introduction of 2k and 4k technologies: As more ORs become integrated, there is an increasing need to display the visual information being generated. In some ORs, large displays are placed on walls to present camera feeds from the operation to members of the operating crew or to the gallery for educational purposes. With new technologies such as 2k and 4k soon to be available, a large monitor can display four images at once without any loss of image quality.
Increase in demand for integrated operating rooms: Integration is becoming more prevalent in the OR environment in the United States. In 2013, almost 23% of all ORs in the U.S. were integrated. This number is expected to rise to 31% by 2019. The fastest growing segment in the integrated OR market are hybrid rooms. These operating rooms provide versatile solutions that save hospitals time and money and provide flexibility to perform open and minimally invasive surgeries. In 2013, Stryker and Intuitive Surgical in a joint venture were two of the only companies offering a completely integrated computer assisted surgery solution, with their NavSuite ™. Other competitors in the integrated OR market include Karl Storz, Image Stream Medical, Black Diamond Video, STERIS and Stryker.
