Are your surgeons able to start procedures on time? Are they actively engaged in the smooth running of your perioperative services? Do you have the capacity you need to grow your surgical volume? How is the shift from inpatient to outpatient surgical procedures affecting your system? Are surgery volumes declining, and if so, what are you doing to stem the decline? How much are your OR services contributing to your hospital’s bottom line? How much are they costing?
Every healthcare executive should ask themselves these burning platform questions. Never before has there been a greater need to inspect your surgical suite’s efficiency in order to improve access, decrease the costs, improve surgeon engagement, and demonstrate metric-driven outcomes. The transformational changes needed require executive vision and leadership. That’s where Novia Strategies can help.
