Supporting healthcare managers to increase OR efficiency
With healthcare managers under pressure to find time and cost savings, there are opportunities to increase efficiency in the operating room (OR).
Challenged to do more with smaller hospital budgets, healthcare managers are striving to carry out procedures in the OR more efficiently – without compromising on quality or safety.
They tell us that preparing for surgery and cleaning up afterwards are the most costly and time-intensive activities in the OR.
Additional challenges stretch resources even further, such as:
- Increasing numbers of procedures
- Complex procurement processes
- Cutbacks in material management
- Overtime costs.
Challenges in the OR
We believe that cutting back the time spent dealing with surgical components can significantly improve efficiency in the OR. Traditionally, nurses have needed to collect everything from the storeroom and set it all up for each procedure. Other necessary steps to get the components in place, such as stock-taking, ordering, warehousing and transportation take additional time
With healthcare professionals spending a lot of time setting up procedures – up to 30 minutes
Because they’re spending so much time managing, unpacking, stocking and restocking surgical equipment, they have less time to spend on carrying out procedures and caring for patients. This causes unnecessary stress. And that leads to poor job satisfaction, making it hard to recruit and retain skilled surgical staff.
