Nashville Design Week


Information Technology and the Built Environment of the Operating Room
by: Alexander Langerman and the Center for Medical Interoperability

8:00 am - 1:00 pm - West Nashville

Designers, architects, clinicians and informatics experts will come together for a half-day workshop at the Center for Medical Interoperability focusing on how an integrated information environment can support team performance and focus attention on the patient in the operating room. Much of the way information is presented to clinicians in surgical settings pulls attention away from patients to focus on wall-mounted screens and workstations, and we envision a radically different ideal state for patient care.
