The technology can help surgeons to estimate how long it’ll take to complete procedures. It also will allow them to organize hospital bed availability better. Also, AI’s ability to integrate information will enhance surgical decision-making because the information is in one place, whether on the operating table or at the patient’s bedside. The latest surgical guidelines, research insights, and the patient’s charts are all within reach. Finally, chatbots can assist patients who have questions after surgery. This particular tool allows healthcare organizations to use nurses more productively.
