IoT Now has published an article which looks at how emerging technologies will disrupt the healthcare sector, good and bad. BLM healthcare partner, Greg McEwen has spoken with the publication and his comments appear within the article.
Speaking about the legal implications and the risks of robotic technology in healthcare Greg said, "Clearly, operations utilising robotics are not without their risks ... incidents relating to broken or left behind instruments aren’t exclusive to robotic surgery. Therein lies one of the difficulties in interpreting the data ... it cannot tell us whether a complication is solely or partly attributable to the use of a robot, whether it is patient-related, or whether it represents a complication of the surgery itself."
The article explores a vast range of robotic technology throughout the sector, what has worked well and whether the advantages of some, outweigh the risks.
