With the company ReMarketable we are working on a “Medical Data Recorder” for operating rooms. Just like the flight data recorder (aka the black box in a aeroplane). I The flight data recorder is an important aide in the safety culture of aviation since a) pilots know that all actions are recorded and can be reviewed and b) after an accident there is always objective and factual data on the condition how things went wrong. There is of course a difference between pilots and surgeons. However, the way the safety and quality culture can be enhanced looks very much the same. A medical data recorder will play an important role in this.
Today an article is published in Spits about the medical black box and a radio interview was held with us on Radio 1 at the AVRO.
