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.

By attending this webinar, the speakers will shed light on how to:

  • Reduce the burden of common challenges with OR scheduling
  • Empower your team with strategies that can be employed to optimize surgical scheduling
  • Meet the demands of a robust OR scheduling software system
