Improve OR Utilization
with Predictive Analytics

Perioperative leaders share a common goal of optimizing OR and resource utilization, but operational complexities abound. If your organization is evaluating ways to improve perioperative operations, it’s critical to find a solution that manages capacity, throughput, and staffing holistically.

Challenges In Optimizing OR Utilization

1

Limited Visibility to Available OR TimeWith so much OR time allocated to blocks, surgeons without block time struggle to book cases. OR schedulers spend their day fielding constant requests for OR time from surgeons, trying to accommodate them.

2

Surgical Blocks Are UnderutilizedMany ORs have 90% of prime-time allocated, but utilization below 60%. Inconsistent reporting, surgeon contracts, operational inertia, and more prevent alignment on proposed block changes.

3

Real-time Visibility to Perioperative PerformanceEvery day in the OR suite starts with a plan, but those plans change based on new developments. This creates a scramble to ensure ORs are resourced and running, and often extends into off-prime hours.

4

Inconsistent data and reportingEHRs, materials management, and other IT systems are a rich resource of clinical and business data but lack real-time operational data or prescriptive workflows.
