How Baptist Health maximizes the value of its OR

This webinar is on-demand and can be viewed at your convenience. 

Picture this: Your organization faces capital requests for new robots and operating rooms, even though utilization is low. Despite low utilization, surgeons are unable to find time in the OR because rooms are blocked in the EHR without being used. This is exactly what Jacksonville, Fla.-based Baptist Health was experiencing. 

During this discussion, leaders from Baptist Health will share how they turned these OR inefficiencies around. Nicole Thomas, president at Baptist Medical Center, and Sara Hubbard, principal consultant of operational improvement at Baptist Health, will share best practices and results on how they achieved a 45 percent increase in robotic case minutes and a 15.9 percent increase in prime-time utilization. 

Attendees will learn:
  • The value of data management systems in the OR
  • The benefits of adopting a culture of data transparency in perioperative analytics
  • How Baptist Health's adoption of a predictive and prescriptive analytics tool has led to an increase in prime-time OR utilization
