OR Governance

A successful proceduralists program depends upon engaged surgeons and anesthesiologists. The cornerstone of this work: establishing a successful Operating Room Executive Committee (OREC) or a Procedural Executive Committee (PEC). We’ve invested years in developing our unique governance structure, which – unlike many traditional Medical Staff Committees – has been proven successful even in the most challenging of structures. Through empowerment, authority and accountability, this physician-led group acts as a decision-making forum to enact changes that achieve efficiency in the procedural areas.

We deploy a disciplined, rigorous, data-driven approach that resonates with administrators and physicians alike. Physician-vetted, meaningful information enables the group to take decisive action at every meeting. Members fully understand that they are empowered and accountable for the efficiency and profitability of their surgical suite, while data-driven metrics and scorecards enable transparency and progress.
