9th Annual Joint Replacement Lecture - Digital Orthopedics: How Will Technology Impact The Way We Deliver Care?

Thursday, October 17, 2019
Swedish Orthopedic Institute
SOI Conference Center
601 Broadway
Seattle, WA 98122

Please join us for a complimentary wine reception and dinner to welcome our Distinguished Guest Lecturer, Dr. Stefano Bini, the Professor and Chief Innovation Officer, Department of Orthopedic Surgery at University of California, San Francisco.

As digital technology continues to advance and become more accessible in healthcare, it is rapidly becoming an essential component of every aspect in orthopedic surgery. The use of digitized applications in pre-operative planning has not only reduced the amount of post-surgical complications following a total joint replacement, data-driven analytics programs with powerful storage capabilities can be used to optimize patient outcomes and perform risk management assessments. At this year’s Joint Replacement Lecture, attendees will review the role and impact of digital technology in surgical planning, and the current state of these emerging technologies, to reduce complications post-surgery and improve patient care.

Intended Audience: Orthopedic surgeons in the Pacific Northwest.

Objectives

At the conclusion of this symposium, the participant will provide better patient care through an increased ability to:

• Review the scope of “digital orthopaedics” and the current state of these emerging technologies
• Recognize the types of digital applications and tools that will impact care delivery models in the field of orthopaedic surgery
• Identify how to implement change to include digital technologies at the department or practice level

Topic Details

As digital technology continues to advance and become more accessible in healthcare, it is rapidly becoming an essential component of every aspect in orthopedic surgery. The use of digitized applications in pre-operative planning has not only reduced the amount of post-surgical complications following a total joint replacement, data-driven analytics programs with powerful storage capabilities can be used to optimize patient outcomes and perform risk management assessments. Technologies such as smart implants, sensors, wearable devices, and patient-facing digital platforms can collect data on surgical procedures helping make orthopedic research more accurate and measurable. These digital technologies and more need to be used as a tool to support surgeons caring for complex orthopedic patients to improve their overall outcomes. 

By learning to recognize the role, impact and use of digital technology in orthopedic surgery, surgeons will be better equipped to improve patient outcomes by utilizing digital technology to enhance surgical skills and reduce post-surgery complications and cost.
