Wednesday, September 7th, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT 

Leaders are under pressure to maximize the output of the perioperative suite and drive revenue, but that’s a complex challenge. Block schedules unintentionally hinder OR scheduling, resulting in underutilization. Cases run longer than booked, creating delays. Case mix doesn’t align with scheduled staff’s qualifications, causing last minute rearrangements. The results are decreased patient and staff satisfaction, misallocated resources and lost revenue.
Learn how to take a holistic approach to managing the perioperative suite to optimize OR capacity and align resources.
Learning objectives:
  • Develop a holistic approach to managing perioperative operations that creates transparency and improves methods to create, find and fill more OR time
  • Identify staffing gaps and consider solutions that align the OR schedule with resources and optimize to maximize case volume
  • Learn how to proactively address barriers to running cases and build case planning into your workflows at your organization
