Intelligent Theatre Control Panel: the Digital Beating Heart of the Smart Operating Theatres of the Future
A Communication and Control System for Operating Theatres’ Smart Infrastructure.

iTCP is the first OT control panel that talks to the building management system and the operating theatre equipment, smart building protocols include Operating Theatre Smart Integration(IoT).

The Operating Theatre has been so far disconnected from the Building Management System. iTCP is creating the smart operating theatre, integrating acute care areas into the digital hospital.

Modern Methods of Construction
The modular concept at the beginning of the project allows for derisking operating theatre projects. Apart from offering flexibility for specifiers, designers and engineers, it has in-built the capacity to absorb and connect with new clinically driven technologies and equipment not invented yet.

A pathway to a greener footprint in healthcare.

The Intelligent Theatre Control panel can be upgraded and updated remotely reducing travel for support and maintenance carbon footprint; the panel will turn off and run maintenance routines when it detects the operating room is not in service – saving energy whilst

Designed for the future digital hospital – reducing the incidence of never events

The convergence of integrated operating theatre technology with IoT technology ultimately allows the capture of data from the patient domain, data from the equipment, as well as data about the environment and the building and this, in turn, can be integrated with the patient record and smart building automation. In the future, this will allow healthcare providers to describe the patient’s entire journey throughout the operating theatre – making an ‘aviation-style black box’ for the operating theatre finally possible.
