CHALLENGE: OR SCHEDULING

Effectively utilizing operating rooms requires a balancing act of having the rooms and staff available to meet surgical demand without having them sit idle. Limited transparency to available time, manual processes associated with requesting and releasing OR time, and misaligned priorities within the department makes juggling the supply and demand for OR resources even more difficult. In addition, scheduling staff, allocating surgical blocks, and making other critical resource decisions are done far in advance of booking cases. When auto-release policies create open time with little to no lead time, fitting in cases at the last minute requires perioperative leaders to scramble to ensure the right mix of skills are available and patients are cleared for surgery. The result of these case and resource scheduling challenges is delayed patient care, decreased staff satisfaction, higher costs, and lost revenue due to case leakage.

SOLUTION:

Hospital IQ’s Perioperative solution enables health systems to unlock OR capacity to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place at the right time. By predicting and pinpointing scheduling inefficiencies, increasing awareness into available OR time, and enhancing transparency and communication across all stakeholders, perioperative leaders can dynamically manage their capacity and not only accommodate increased case volumes, but also make their health system more resilient to disruptions. As a result, organizations can optimize their OR schedule to better meet surgical demand, improving room and staff utilization, increasing surgeon and staff satisfaction, while benefiting their overall financial performance.

Improve Access to OR Time

Hospital IQ uncovers hidden OR time by predicting which blocks are most likely to go unused and prompting blockholders to release them weeks in advance, giving other surgeons sufficient time to fill those valuable primetime slots. This early-released time is made available to surgeons through a transparent marketplace where they can readily find and request available time. Additionally, Hospital IQ automatically notifies surgeons when OR time that is aligned with their use patterns and preferences becomes available. By increasing access to the ORs, your providers can book more cases within existing OR time and optimize the OR schedule to serve more patients.
