The operating suite is a key revenue driver for hospitals, making prime-time OR minutes a critical resource that needs to be carefully managed. But effectively scheduling and managing this complex department is a tremendous challenge.
Perioperative leaders are continuously striving to improve utilization, grow surgical volume, keep surgeons satisfied, and properly align resources to demand. But the rigid process of managing the block schedule and lack of visibility ultimately hinders performance.
Digital transformation automates manual processes. Leverage predictive analytics and streamline workflows to achieve sustainable, improved perioperative operations to:
- Create a marketplace of time for surgeons to easily request additional block time
- Provide an opportunity to release unneeded blocks well in advance to increase the probability it will be filled
- Understand performance metrics to inform block reallocation and optimization
