One of the most significant challenges perioperative leaders face is efficient use of operating room time. Block management is a largely manual and time-consuming process based on retrospective data and fails to identify opportunities to improve OR utilization. Despite best efforts, assigning block time to physicians or service lines rarely translates into predictable scheduling patterns.
Physician request for OR time has been a constant challenge to work on for those hospitals with limited open block time. This highly-leveraged decision impacts physician satisfaction, patient experience, and top-line growth for hospitals and healthcare systems.
In this session, see the benefits of proactive block management, including improved OR utilization, measurable financial outcomes, productive conversations with surgeons, and improved physician satisfaction and patient experience. Join LeanTaaS’ Senior Solutions Executive and Senior Product Implementation Manager (iQueue for Operating Rooms) to learn how proactive management of block time utilizing data-driven insights yields optimal block allocation, improvements in OR utilization, and measurable financial outcomes. Discover how predictive and prescriptive analytics help hospital leaders and block committee members answer the questions of which physician needs how much time and when, and facilitates more productive, less contentious conversations with surgeons.
