Providing reliable and safe patient care continues to be a focus of medical professionals and leaders within organizations, especially as many health systems transition to high-reliability organizations (HRO).
As part of the HRO journey, quality and safety leaders are charged with evaluating data for process improvement. Asking the right questions of the data, in addition to making connections to existing ideas and solutions in new and unusual ways, will drive reliability in your organization. A robust process for asking the right questions and having confidence in the data collection methods allows leaders to drive innovative solutions to patient safety initiatives.
This session will review the process of asking beautiful questions within the five principles of HRO. Real-time data collection methodology in the perioperative arena will serve as an example for patient safety and surgical quality dashboards. Examples of process improvement initiatives based on the reports will be presented.
Participants will be empowered to replicate these processes in their own facilities to keep every patient safe every time.
Maximizing surgeon and staff productivity and efficient use of operating room time (and minimizing conflict) that arises around surgeon accessibility and efficient use of operating room time is an achievable goal when all stakeholders have the capability to easily access transparent and actionable data. Adopting technology with predictive and prescriptive data analytics drives meaningful conversations, builds a collaborative culture and strengthens multidisciplinary relationships, while improving access to optimal patient care.
Surgery scheduling is the nucleus of the Operating Room and has always been a challenge. Historically, surgery schedulers and nurses have employed ledgers, Kardex systems, and a variety of other methods to combat the variability and simplify the process. The use of computers has assisted, but ORs are continually asked to meet the demands of surgeons, staff, and patients.
Join Aileen Killen, RN, PhD, CPPS, Director, Perioperative Operational Excellence and Jeff Oliver, Lt Col, Ret. Clinical Support Specialist to discuss the challenges of surgical scheduling and strategies that can be employed to mitigate those challenges. Using published literature and expert opinion, we will explore the difficulties and nuances of scheduling, block time, OR policies involving scheduling, surgical suite governance, and patient and staff satisfaction. You will discover how using a comprehensive scheduling software program can optimize OR utilization, forecast demand, provide data for decision-making and process improvement, boost satisfaction for patients and staff.

Abstract: Amid staffing challenges faced throughout the health system in the first half of 2022, Gundersen’s perioperative department further experienced capacity constraints and lacked access to real-time visibility into key data to make actionable decisions. To address these challenges, the organization launched an AI-based solution to provide visible data and tools to right-size block allocation, repurpose unused time, and streamline the scheduling process.
Join Gundersen’s Clinical Operations Director to hear how forming a true partnership with a proven industry technology team to achieve operational excellence through the use of predictive and prescriptive analytics has now empowered leaders to make better informed decisions. Key results include:
