    The Modern Hospital Operating Room: Overcoming Obstacles to Organizational Transformation - a FREE webinar sponsored by Surgical Directions

    Today’s typical US hospital OR staff face daunting challenges: high patient expectations; dated, inefficient, and siloed processes; complex and expensive technology; an ongoing outmigration of volume; hostile payers requiring high-value care; limited analytics/benchmarking; and a shortage of skilled staff and surgeons who expect better service and access. Replacing current services with a streamlined, high-quality, measured process requires the cooperation and collaboration of administration, surgeons, anesthesia providers, and staff. This webinar will offer expert advice about process improvements to help mitigate these challenges.

    Expiring Status Quo: Initiating an OR Resource Optimization Project A FREE webinar sponsored by TECSYS

    The OR supply chain is a multimillion-dollar management issue in most organizations.  It is a complex matter: Physician preference items, supply shortages and substitutions, procedure and approach variations, reliance on other departments, and sterile processing turnaround all produce the daily stress of wondering if you will have to scramble to make sure all the equipment and supplies are in the room when the surgeon and patient arrive. What if there was a better way? Mercy, based in St. Louis, MO, embarked on the journey to transform perioperative operations 2 years ago. This is a multiyear project, but significant progress has already been made. Join this webinar to learn about the early-stage work done at Mercy that has laid the foundation for ongoing success and increased savings.

    Reducing Costs: Cost per Case Data Improved with Procedure Cohorts

    If you’ve ever tried to talk to a physician about cost per case, you may have heard a response like this:  “My patients are sicker. My patients are more complicated. The data is wrong.” How do you respond to that? Intermountain Healthcare’s ProComp project has 3 years of experience tackling this tough conversation. A patent-pending process for building procedure cohorts provides physician-vetted procedure groups. Physicians now join meetings knowing the data is reliable, meaningful, and unblended. Join this webinar to learn strategies for increasing physician engagement with data review. Please invite your data analyst to join this webinar with you!

    Converting to a New Surgery Information System: Preparing for the Daunting Task

    An increasing number of hospital mergers and a growing trend toward corporate-centric business services have prompted a flurry of IT system conversions where hospitals and/or departments migrate from one IT system or vendor to another. Unfortunately, most conversions are often seen as “just another IT project.”

    Successful perioperative system conversions require more than the usual IT team approach. The complexity of perioperative services, as well as movement toward electronic quality reporting, necessitates surgical leadership, staff insight, and perioperative expertise throughout all phases of the conversion: planning, build, testing, and go-live support.  Without OR involvement, a system conversion can result in lost revenue, scheduling process interruptions, partial or complete historical data loss, excessive downtime, workflow inefficiencies, increased surgeon and staff frustration, and decreased data fidelity. This webinar will provide insights for preventing common pitfalls and preparing, assessing, and creating realistic resource and timeline needs.

    Going Rep-less: Key Challenges and Opportunitie

    Orthopedic sales reps are under scrutiny as their presence in the operating room has been linked to higher implant costs, reduced operational efficiency, and increased risk to the hospital. The need to increase efficiency and reduce costs in the surgical episode will only increase with recent changes in healthcare payment reform and an expanding patient population.

    Select hospitals have already begun to find ways to reduce the impact of vendors in the surgical suite. However, “going rep-less” is not enough; simultaneous clinical and operational measures must be taken to fill the gap left by the rep. This webinar will show you how to identify the clinical and operational initiatives necessary to support a rep-free OR.

    Creating and Using a Scorecard for Perioperative Decision Support

    Decision support strategy is something that must be woven into everyday analysis. Having access to a well-structured scorecard with meaningful indicators for your facility is a key ingredient for data-based decision making and provides a snapshot of performance to measure for early course correction when indicated.

    The indicators should be outcome driven and provide informative data that can be assimilated and assessed across all levels of the department and the organization. They should include the "big picture" items such as pay-for-performance measures to identify actual to benchmark, as well as customized indicators that may be inherent to a particular facility or region.

    The presentation will provide a guide, both descriptively and visually, to the development and utilization of a performance-based scorecard. This tool is meant to be a snapshot to identify opportunities for early intervention and to provide a visual of adherence to applicable standards.

    Ebola Virus Disease Patient Under Investigation (PUI):  What if your patient needs a surgical intervention?

    Numerous ethical and clinical considerations must be weighed in order to make a sound decision whether to proceed with an emergent surgical intervention for patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola. The surgical protocol for possible or confirmed Ebola cases provided by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) offers guidance to avoid elective surgical procedures on such patients. Perioperative leaders need to proactively prepare for patients under investigation (PUI) who may need an emergent surgical procedure. The webinar leaders will discuss the process steps involved as well as how to ensure that proper risk mitigation is defined in all aspects of evaluating and caring for a PUI for Ebola virus disease. Proactive planning is necessary to make sure that all individuals involved in the care of a patient under investigation for Ebola virus disease have the appropriate guidelines and tools to provide safe care.
