Data sparks on-time improvements

By: OR Manager

As with most busy ORs, we were looking to improve our efficiency. Consultants were brought in and gave recommendations, but it did not change our culture or improve our on-time starts. We had meetings with anesthesia providers, surgeons, and nurses. The results were differing opinions on the definition of an "on-time start," the lack of credibility of the data, who determined the cause of the delay, potential bias, and lack of accountability.
