An operating room (OR) is the nucleus of a successful surgical hospital, with the profitability it generates and patients it serves. But ORs are also one of the most cost-intensive areas of hospital operations. Unexpected cancellations, delays due to missing equipment or personnel, or even a lengthy turnover, can severely impair an OR’s competence to maintain a positive contribution margin, both in terms of monetary gain and patient health. This is where operating room management plays a vital role in re-examining OR operations to increase efficiency and eliminate avoidable costs.
Leveraging technology, operating room management solution providers help schedule patients’ visits for pre-op, surgery, and recovery while also attending to same-day cancellations, on-time procedure starts, equipment availability, and parallel processing to enhance the efficiency and quality of OR operations. Players in the field are also developing solutions to build support among physicians and awareness among staff to reduce supply costs, adjust OR block time and releases, proactively avoid equipment problems, slowness, turnovers, and more. Hospitals that implement effective OR management solutions will gain the competitive advantage over their competitors in the marketplace, owing to their increased efficiency to facilitate the improvement of patient safety, quality of care, and patient, employee, and physician satisfaction.
