OR Decision Support & Analytics
OptimizeOR has an intuitive interface developed with surgeons’ needs in mind, helping them increase surgeon productivity and satisfaction.
INCREASE CASES & LOWER COST
At SpecialtyCare, we’ve worked long and hard throughout the years to make sure every single aspect of your operating room is covered. When your mind is at ease in regards to support, your focus on the patient increases significantly, which is exactly what we aim for. Patient care will always come first with us. Because of this, we’re motivated as a company to continue thinking of new ways to support your team.
In 2017, SpecialtyCare launched OptimizeOR, a user-friendly decision support and analytics system that helps hospitals improve on operative performance. OptimizeOR is a data-driven application that allows hospital leaders to optimize their staff as well as standardize supplies and implant use across surgeons.
OptimizeOR has an intuitive interface developed with surgeons’ needs in mind, helping them increase surgeon productivity and satisfaction. Users have access to performance measures and can easily manipulate powerful analytics to produce materials specifically designed to drive and represent financial and clinical improvement. This helps customers grow surgical volume, increase productivity, and improve patient and surgeon satisfaction.
OptimizeOR is powered by Syus and AORN Syntegrity. SpecialtyCare selected Syus after witnessing the value it provides several of the hospital customers we share. OptimizeOR has access to the 4 million surgical cases in the Syus database.
Along with SCOPE, the SpecialtyCare Operative Procedural Registry, the largest allied health database of its kind, allows SpecialtyCare customers an unmatched ability to determine benchmarks, discover best practices, and compare performance so that patient outcomes are improved as well as hospital finances.
