Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: Turnover and First Case Starts Are Not Your Most Important Metrics – A free webinar sponsored by LeanTaaS
Improving OR utilization is a hot-button topic for OR managers. How to best define, measure, and adjust operations to increase utilization has been the subject of much debate and study. Turnover times and first case late starts are often identified as likely suspects, but upon closer inspection, those factors are rarely the culprits.
In this session, UCHealth’s senior financial analyst and former perioperative business manager Ashley Walsh and LeanTaaS iQueue president Sanjeev Agrawal will discuss how machine learning and predictive analytics can uncover the true source of poor OR utilization, share with you how UCHealth has increased OR utilization in just 3 months, and recommend best practices for improving utilization in your OR suite.
- Discuss turnover, first case late starts, and other factors that decrease OR utilization.
- Identify ways to best mine electronic health record data to promote change.
- Discuss the research and best practices that led to improving OR utilization at UCHealth.
