Technology and Teamwork to Maximize Efficiency and the Patient Experience in the OR: 1.5 CEs
Efficiency problems in the OR have a serious impact on patients, surgeons, OR staff, and downstream nursing units. Bumping of scheduled elective cases, extended waiting for urgent/emergent cases, congestion in the postanesthesia care unit, and uneven census levels in downstream nursing units create expensive problems that negatively impact the patient experience and staff satisfaction. The speakers will describe the use of a powerful approach integrating technology and analytics (“hard science”) and teamwork (“soft science”) to anticipate and address these problems.
• Describe the use of rigorous analytic methods in OR optimization. Integrated tools supporting standard analytics, queuing analysis, optimization, simulation modeling, business intelligence, and location intelligence are used to selectively identify and resolve critical problems within the framework of a customizable solution platform.
• Describe the role of teamwork and collaboration using the mathematical tools to enhance and sustain operational, cultural, and behavioral changes in the perioperative environment.
