Rapid surgical innovation puts patients at risk for medical errors

standards and extended mentorship by experienced surgeons. This report should encourage the adoption of more rigorous credentialing standards proposed by professional organizations rather than by individual hospitals."

Kane added that robotic prostatectomy by experienced surgeons has proven to be beneficial to the patient with less blood loss, reduced infections and shorter hospital stays.

"A responsibility of deploying a surgical technology should include the responsibility to monitor it as it diffuses throughout the real world to ensure safety," said David C. Chang, PhD, MPH, MBA, director of Outcomes Research at UC San Diego School of Medicine and the paper's senior author. "Surveillance of surgical safety should be ongoing, much like the Centers for Disease Control monitor changes in trends of infectious diseases across the country."

The UC San Diego team used Patient Safety Indicators, developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), to develop a nationwide data sample to analyze surgical provider performance and potential in-hospital adverse events from 2003-2009. Data for the prevalence of robotic prostatectomy was pulled from AHRQ and compared to published data from Intuitive Surgical Inc., the manufacturer of the da Vinci robotic system.

"One potential intervention would be the development of standardized training and credentialing programs, much like the aviation industry requires of flight crews inexperienced with new types of aircraft," said Parsons, who is also an associate professor of surgery at UC San Diego School of Medicine. "An independent, continuously updated tracking system for the adoption of new surgical technology is also essential. Prior estimates of robotic prostatectomy uptake, provided exclusively by the robot manufacturer, substantially overestimated the speed with which it was adopted by the surgical community."
