The future of surgery is intelligent

Executives weigh in on robotic surgery, actionable data and the pursuit of the quadruple aim

Surgical history, like the whole of human history, can be demarcated by the evolution of tools. Seminal developments in modern surgical history include the advancement of infection prevention practices in 1913, improvements in blood transfusion practices in the 1940s, and the emergence of minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery in the 1980s, according to the American College of Surgeons' 100-year timeline of surgical quality improvement.

Intelligent surgery represents the next chapter in the evolution of surgical care and comprises three components: smart systems and instrumentation, human understanding and digital insights. The following e-book is based on a Becker's advisory call with health system executives on the topic of intelligent surgery.
