Discover how JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL coordinated and streamlined OR workflow processes to achieve a 26% reduction in "wheels out, wheels in" time. Optimizing efficiency, quality of care, and physician and staff satisfaction were priorities for the hospital's surgical services. Hospital leadership put together a multi-disciplinary team to assess the department and improve workflow across its 18 operating rooms. The team used "parallel processing" to reduce OR turnover time, rapid-improvement exercises to redesign central sterile workflow, and Work-Out processes to streamline pre-admission testing, creating more capacity for additional cases.
