Published studies document that 70-80% of the instruments in commonly opened instrument sets are not used for a given case. The processing, repair, and replacement of these instruments cost hospitals hundreds of thousand dollars annually. Additionally, time spent by your OR and SPD staff handling these unnecessary instruments is a waste and decreases your SPD’s and OR efficiency. Our program uses a data-driven approach comparing your surgeon’s actual instrument usage vs. our national benchmark data to identify unneeded instruments and necessary set changes. Often, changes to a set can eliminate the need for pulling a second set of instruments. Both opportunities result in significant cost savings and improvement in efficiency by removing excess instruments from sets and re-configuring sets for better utility. Your surgeons and OR Staff will be involved throughout the engagement to ensure that we are meeting all needs.
