Abstract:

The current research project activities are based upon three pillars of research, OR Informatics, Simulation for Training and Smart Image. A fourth pillar was added during this period of performance that targeted physical and cognitive ergonomicshuman factors. At the beginning of this period of performance, there were five projects that comprised the Informatics pillar and two for Smart Image. The Simulation pillar had been comprised of a single project, The Maryland Virtual Patient. This pillar was expanded to include research conducted in and for the larger Simulation Training Program in the MASTRI Center. Finally, work objectives were established for research related to physical and cognitive ergonomicshuman factors. This research has proceeded under the mantle of the phrase Operating Room of the Future . We are replacing that theme with the more appropriate Innovations in the Surgical Environment . The period of performance of this contract was extended to October 30, 2009. Based on the extended period of performance, this project is on time, on schedule, and within performance parameters.
