Considering the continuous change within the German health care system, German hospitals are forced to realize efficiency gains and, at the same time, try to enhance their quality standards. Digital support systems in surgery rooms intend to improve operational efficiency and reduce failure quotas. A dataset with 383 hip joint endoprosthesis surgeries from a German hospital was analysed using statistical methods, among others logit model, odds ratio and ANCOVA. Results show that digitally supported surgery results in a shorter hospital stay time and reduces acute hemorrhagic anemia as a postoperative complication. Finally, it is possible to conclude that the Surgical Procedure Manager reduces surgical risks.
