Hybrid operating room is a surgical theatre equipped with medical imaging system that supports high-quality interventional imaging, and complex open & minimally invasive surgeries. Imaging devices such as CT scanners, mobile X-ray machines, and MRI scanners are used in hybrid operating rooms. Hybrid operating rooms are used primarily in cardiac, vascular, and neurosurgery, but also are suitable for a number of other surgical disciplines – Biopsy, Laparoscopic surgery, Orthopaedic trauma surgery, etc. The imaging unit provides improved accuracy and outcomes, also shorter hospital stays and quick recovery.
Technological advancements in robot assisted surgeries is a key factor driving growth of the global hybrid operating room market. In addition, increasing investment in R&D of advanced surgical equipment, and growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries in developed and developing economies are other factors expected to propel growth of the global hybrid operating room market over the forecast period. Developments in laparoscopic surgery, and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery techniques are also expected to boost demand of hybrid operating room over the forecast period.
However, high installation cost is a major factor restraining growth of the global hybrid operating room market. Additionally, longer deployment time, and lack of skilled workforce are other factors hampering growth of the global hybrid operating room market over the forecast period.
Growing demand for robotic medical systems that offer enhanced haptic sensation abilities, tissue recognition, and real-time diagnostic ability is expected to generate potential opportunities for key players in the global hybrid operating room market to expand their presence.
Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
