The intelligent operating room (IOR) (Wachs 2010)), where digital technology inputs can assist human team members is becoming a reality (Hashimoto et al. 2018). The key issue for patients is that the IOR involves the collection, storage, sharing and use of patient data through devices such as video recording, robotics, medical team person worn sensors (i.e., sabermetrics) and artificial intelligence (AI). As this technology is adopted, it is important to understand how patients feel about the collection, use and application of this data which represents a research gap. This exploratory study aims to establish patient perceptions of the data collected in intelligent operating rooms across four technology types (robotics, sabermetrics, video, AI). A structured survey with four vignettes including visual and text descriptions, alongside closed and open ended questions was administered. A sample (n=462) of UK participants from PROLIFIC answered three questions on a 1-5 scale for each technology: I don’t really think about this as my data; I would be willing to consent to the data being collected and used in this way, I would like to have access to this data. Concluding with an open question: “Do you have any comments about your data in this scenario?” Inductive thematic analysis and repeated measures ANOVAs were conducted.
