Welcome to the first OTdigital! Digital transformation has revolutionised our daily life and has also become an integral part of orthopaedics and traumatology. Our congress wants to provide a scientific platform for exchanging current and future core topics of digitalisation in orthopaedics and traumatology. Digitalisation is significantly changing the way how we provide care for our patients, communicate with colleagues or other healthcare partners, and conduct research. What we currently see is just the beginning!
Digital tools can improve our patients ́ safety through various points – from prevention to diagnostics, therapy and rehabilitation – and assist us in focusing more on our patient care delivery. This potential gives surgeons, nurses, and therapists worldwide broader access to high-quality performance and a relief of their workload. Our goal is to present relevant aspects of current developments, trends, and controversies of digita-lisation in orthopaedics and traumatology. We want to establish a scientific platform and community to improve digitalisation’s use in our daily work.
