Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Boston, Massachusetts: Operating Room of the Future

Systems Convergence Feasibility Study

Project Completed 2000

TSG participated as a member of a Research Study team to coordinate multiple Operating Room vendor systems to work collaboratively on one converged network platform. MGH assembled the industry leaders of scientists, engineers and clinicians to catalyze the discovery, development and transfer of technology to the Operating Room of the Future. TSG was responsible for designing cabling systems that were at the forefront of telecommunications and mission critical applications. The Research Study team met on a weekly basis with the leaders in hardware and software (such as Microsoft, Lucent, GE-Pinpoint, and Sideband) to develop a communications system to meet the visions of the 21st century. The communications systems developed as a part of this effort were applicable to environments included in the Operating Room of the Future. As a part of the Research Study team, TSG was privy to systems and techniques that were being envisioned at that time by Operating Room system vendors for industry deployment within the next 3 to 5 years.
