CannonDesign released a new white paper on the evolving surgical environment.

"Surgical Suites: Emerging Approaches to Planning and Design," written by Todd Accardi, AIA, and Julie Dumser, RN, examines strategies for developing solutions for collaboration between service lines and medical professionals, and how operating rooms can support information-rich technology.

The authors listed design solutions, like digital cockpits, that will “future-proof” surgical environments, and they delved into universal ORs, which are “a solution to space constraints while achieving an ability to perform complex surgical and minimally invasive procedures.” The shift toward universal OR has been slow, but it is still considered the future of the surgical platform.

The white paper is free to download here.
