Is your OR struggling to accommodate all of the surgeons requesting access to the schedule? In the OR, lost cases mean missed revenue.
Signs that OR Case Volume is Exceeding Capacity
Average OR utilization exceeds a benchmark of 80%
OR's consistently run over at the end of the day
Add-on cases do not start until evening
Unable to book cases when requested
Surgeons underestimate case length to get on the schedule
Tension between surgeons, anesthesia, staff, and administration
When OR Utilization exceeds an average 80% it indicates that your OR is likely losing cases.
In addition to lost cases, working beyond 100% capacity means the additional expenditure of overtime and staff burnout.
DCCS SMiG can help identify opportunities and implement strategies to increase OR access for surgeons to schedule cases.
