Customer Overview

Mount Sinai South Nassau

» Part of Mount Sinai health system, located in Oceanside, NY

» 455-bed acute care teaching hospital with 27 ORs and 6 Endo rooms

» ANCC Top Nursing Care Magnet recognition

» Long Island’s only free-standing, 911-receiving ED

THEIR PROBLEM: LACK OF TRUSTWORTHY DATA

Time consuming, manual methods for analyzing performance and driving change led to:

Underutilized operating rooms and pent-up case volume resulting from:

» A surgical block distribution that did not align with how the time was being used
» The lack of data to allow informed decisions by the block committee to review block utilization and reallocate
» Recurring bottlenecks that resulted in case delays and overruns

A lack of trusted, transparent data, which created:

» Conflicts with surgeons and service lines when block reallocation was discussed
» An inability to identify recurring bottlenecks in advance or their root causes
» Roadblocks that prevent meaningful change to key metrics and overall performance

OUR SOLUTION: REAL-TIME DATA IN HEALTHCARE

With Hospital IQ’s Perioperative solution, this client was immediately able to:

Empower staff through real-time situational awareness to improve OR utilization by:

» Reviewing yesterday’s performance and today’s plan with the surgical team each day
» Identifying the root cause of trends and creating accountability to resolve them
» Continuously assessing performance against internal benchmarks to track progress

Create a comprehensive source of truth and freed data access across the organization to:

» Overhaul the block schedule by reallocating block time based on booking patterns
» Adjust resources in advance based on surgical performance (e.g. delays, overruns, etc)
» Increase block utilization by 12% and overall OR utilization by 8%
