Patient Flow for Operating Theater

Real-time Visibility Improves Patient Satisfaction, Operational Efficiency and the Bottom-line

Lower OR Efficiency Equals Lower Revenue

The Operating Room (OR) affects a high percentage of a hospital’s revenue. Slight delays in case start times, lengthy turnovers, inefficient block utilization and minutes lost searching for missing equipment have serious consequences on OR efficiency and profitability.

Manual Approaches are Not Sufficient

With reimbursement tied directly to quality metrics and reduction in total cost of care, traditional manual approaches are no longer sufficient. Today’s hospitals are challenged to find new and better ways of managing their OR workflow and patient throughput. 

Better use of Existing Resources and Capability

Monitor the status and location of patients, staff, OR suites and other resources, such as infusion pumps and C-arms

Improves patient placement and turnaround times

Automated room status identifications; Flexible map and list visibility for real-time patient and staff location with updates to ORIS and tracking boards

Serve More Patients

Customized operational alerts and notifications to optimize patient movement through the different stages of care (for example, patient arrived at Pre-op, patient arrived in OR suite, patient arrived in PACU)

Improve Staff Communication and Efficiency

RoomCheck local visibilityprovides OR staff accurate and real-time information at each room, eliminating the need to scrub in and interrupt staff to obtain it 

Continuous Improvement

Business intelligence around wait times, room turnaround times, bottlenecks and room utilization. 

"We can now objectively detect the time patients spend in each phase of our day surgery department and change the workflow if needed."
