The increasing plurality and complexity of technical assistance systems pose a challenge for clinically active physicians. Particularly in the operating theater, there is a growing need to integrate medical systems and software solutions into a holistic clinical infrastructure. The primary goal of building a "digital (ENT) operating room of the future" is not just the pure technical improvement of the individual computer-aided equipment and instruments, but rather their dynamic networking and system integration in an open modular system. Promising scientific projects address the question of how to improve the quality, safety and user-friendliness of technical systems in the health care system of the 21st century. The work on SCOT, MD PnP and OR.NET show the various components that make the vision of the ENT operating room of the future tangible and realistic in the overall context.
