Design and implementation of a task manager prototype for the operation room

  • An operation room is a stressful work environment. Nevertheless, all involved persons have to work safely as there is no space for making mistakes. To ensure a high level of concentration and seamless interaction, all involved persons have to know their own tasks and tasks of their colleagues. The entire team must work synchronously at all times. However, the operation room (OR) is a noisy environment and the actors have to set their focus on their work. To optimize the overall workflow, a task manager supporting the team was developed. Each actor is equipped with a client terminal showing a summary of their own tasks. Moreover, a big screen displays all tasks of all actors. The architecture is a distributed system based on a communication framework that supports the interaction of all clients with the task manager. A prototype of the task manager and several clients have been developed and implemented. The system represents a proof-of-concept for further development. This paper describes the concept of the task manager.
