Optimizing surgical success: 1 hospital's journey to streamline OR scheduling, performance 

Wednesday, September 27th, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

Shannon Medical Center's main operating room performed efficiently, despite a number of surgeons operating outside of designated block time and cases scheduled after primetime hours. Challenges arose when attempting to establish a correlation between scheduling patterns and operational performance due to a lack of surgeon engagement with data. Leadership recognized the need to adopt a solution capable of communicating "source of truth" data to physicians and create access to the OR during business hours in order to strengthen operational performance as case volume grew.

During this webinar, experts will share how to incorporate operational data to drive process improvement and change management goals. Join the discussion to learn more about how implementing an AI-driven optimization solution drove higher performance outcomes and improved efficiency with impressive results:

  • 10% reduction in turnover time
  • 13% increase in block utilization
  • 19% increase in first case on-time starts
