Perioperative medicine is changing, and its goals are expanding. More and more attention is paid to the surgical experience and the patient's quality of life. Patient-reported data represent a useful tool in this context. Patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs) and experience measures (PREMs) are among the most used categories. However, creating perioperative programs capable of integrating traditional perioperative data with these scales is not easy. New technologies, particularly artificial intelligence, thanks to their ability to recognise, interpret, process or simulate human feelings, emotions and moods, could provide the necessary tools to combine all perioperative aspects, placing the patients and their needs at the centre of the process.
