Communication breakdowns in the operating room are associated with preventable adverse events. This study examined the potential of a novel workflow management system—a computerized system which used voice recognition and built-in algorithms to ensure important procedural steps were undertaken appropriately—to improve patient safety. The system was able to detect when intraoperative tasks were being performed and successfully identified omitted steps as well.
