Assessing Operational Readiness to Ensure Success
Surgery coming back online presents a historic management challenge as most operating rooms have resource and time capacity limits.
Month to month forecasting shows that surgery demand may surge to 120 to 150% over historical baselines. Health Systems, Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, and competitors will be looking to recover lost revenues as soon as possible; are you ready?
In partnership with Hammes Company Healthcare (experts in demand/capacity modeling), and RDA Associates (leaders in supply chain management and demand planning ), DCCS is providing a free Surgery Surge Preparedness Check List to help surgery leaders develop an effective surge strategy:
Forecasting and measuring volumes by specialty
Understanding limits on resource capacity
Prioritizing and sequencing patients
Scheduling labor to match anticipated workload
Developing supply/equipment and associated storage strategies
Monitoring PPE burn rate
Engaging governance to address key decisions
