OP 4.1

A user-centric, open and expandable platform to support OR processes in an smart way (Smart Services World II technology programme)

While data-driven services became prevalent in the industry during the digital transformation, the use of networked machines and data in the medical technology industry is still in its infancy. The "OP 4.1" technology and business platform aims to change this: it can offer companies of all sizes a technical and commercial basis for the development, distribution and simple application of innovative apps in the OR environment. The aim of the platform is to simplify and significantly accelerate the transfer of research results into clinical practice for the benefit of patients and to support medical personnel.
