The term “Surgical Workflow (S-WF)” is used in a variety of contexts and for different purposes, each having one thing in common: Modeling the processes in the Operating room. The approaches to this are manifold: From human or technical observation of the surgical processes and their abstract modeling to the manual description of complex surgical cases there are different ways to acquire S-WFs. The Worksflows themselves are used to answer specific clinical questions, for requirements engineering for software systems or to drive higher level clinical applications.

The tutorial gives an introduction to the field of Surgical Workflow Analysis. The major steps for successfully using the methodology are presented: Process recording, process modeling, process visualization, process analysis. In addition to theoretical aspects, the speakers give examples from their experience in analyzing over 700 clinical processes from various surgical domains for different purposes.
