A systems approach to perioperative workflow can address the complex issues that impede efficiency and limit growth.

Many ORs struggle with efficiency issues that erode capacity, increase costs, and limit revenue. Late first-case starts. Poor utilization of block time.  Excessive room turnover times. Scheduling problems. These problems stem from an inherently complex workplace that has a broad mix of personnel, severe communication challenges, resource constraints, and day to day unpredictability.

Addressing these issues requires a systems approach that marries block optimization, process improvement and change management tools with sophisticated technology that tracks patients and critical assets through every step of the perioperative workflow.  Taking this comprehensive approach can help healthcare entities transform OR efficiency while also achieving significant gains in patient safety, quality of care, stakeholder satisfaction, and financial performance.
