Abstract:

As a hospital leader, it is indeed frustrating for you and/or your perioperative leadership to have  difficult conversations with surgeons about block allocation and utilization, particularly when the data isn’t defensible and when surgeons can take their cases elsewhere. It is also challenging to decide how much time and flexibility you can afford to give new surgeons to grow their practice without tying up potentially underutilized time.

How can your organization establish a more effective, less stressful program for managing and optimizing your operating room schedule- particularly given today’s challenging environment of constrained nursing and anesthesia resources?

Join The University of Kansas Health System’s (TUKHS) Senior Director of Business Operations, Perioperative and Procedural Services to learn about creating an Effective Block Management System and learn how TUKHS was able to, in less than a year’s time, achieve a 20% increase in block utilization, 5% increase in prime time utilization and facilitate 98% more manual releases/transfers of time before the auto-release deadlines.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the characteristics of an effective block management system.
  • Identify ways to break through historical barriers and confidently make quicker block allocation decisions.
  • Explain why, even after a significant EHR investment, hospitals still need to invest in data management systems, particularly for the operating room.
