The OR is a significantly powerful economic engine in the hospital. A single minute of OR time can be worth over $100, and a minute of block time up to $50,000. Maximizing OR efficiency and optimization are therefore vital to maintain the financial stability of healthcare systems.

Unfortunately, efforts to resolve complex operational challenges often fail or are impossible to sustain, particularly given today’s complex healthcare environment. This is usually due to an insufficient combination of the right technology (AI tools and automation), the right processes and the organizational change management expertise required to create lasting impact.

In this webinar, the System VP of Perioperative Services CommonSpirit Health, a health system comprised of 1,000 sites and 140 hospitals that serves 23 states, describes a successful approach to transforming surgical operations and delivering ROI throughout the system. In partnership with LeanTaaS, CommonSpirit deployed the AI-powered iQueue for Operating Rooms solution to support people and processes in driving efficiencies at individual sites, as part of a system-wide strategy toward better OR operations. 

Discover the transformative potential of integrating AI, talented experts, and strategic insights in perioperative operations and how this dynamic combination empowers complex organizations to achieve powerful results. 

Viewers of this webinar will be able to: 

  • Analyze how successful OR efficiency solutions combine AI, automation, and organizational change management to drive sustainable results 
  • Describe a real-world case study of improving OR access, revenue, and staff engagement through data-driven optimization
  • Develop strategies to secure leadership buy-in for investing in perioperative performance improvements
