It’s imperative the OR is running as efficiently as possible. And SpecialtyCare can help.

An efficient OR is characterized by:

  • Full and transparent communication

Understanding Your Needs

A recent study from HFMA and the Health Care Advisory Board found the average OR runs at only 68 percent capacity. To give some perspective, improvements that target just one procedure per day, per operating room suite, could translate to an additional $4 to $7 million in annual revenue for the average-sized organization. Surgery delays, OR utilization and case cancellations negatively impact your bottom line. Another study at a major hospital found surgery schedules were delayed 98 percent of the time. Improvements targeting even one procedure per day per operating room. In a recent study, at a major hospital, it was found that the surgery schedules were delayed.
