Healthcare providers feel significant pressure to meet the needs of surgeons and nursing staff while balancing operational targets (utilization, access, revenue). Current block schedule management approaches, which often rely on intuition and “tribal” rules, make it challenging to allocate OR time fairly and efficiently.
UCHealth solved this problem by leveraging predictive analytics and big data. This session will explain how UCHealth improved OR utilization and productivity with secure and convenient mobile block exchange, optimized staffing plans, smart block schedules, and an actionable performance tracker that ensures the right surgeon gets the right block at the right time.
Lunch and refreshments will be served.
