Background: Operating rooms (ORs), containing a variety of tools and equipment, have become more complex. Yet, most OR information systems operate in an isolated fashion with little or no attention to data management and utilization. This study proposes a new approach to the design of an integrated OR informatics approach offering automated storage and management of data before, during, and after an operation; medical segmentation and tracking of patient surgical case data using a well- structured database design for future retrieval and utilization of the data; an OR educational medical library and support for surgeons and medical teams to better control OR instruments.

Methods: This study discusses the special requirements and challenges of ORs and medical education and proposes a design, strategies, and techniques to address these concerns.

Results: A comprehensive OR informatics system can be developed, which when combined with a database of patient cases provides medical students with the data and skills they need to succeed.

Conclusions: We propose a modern approach and design that facilitates better data management and utilization through the integration of different information systems, devices and e-learning systems.
