OR Manager Conferences Enhance Education, Connection, and Experience

For 35 years, OR Manager has been providing live education and experiences to improve business and patient outcomes of the surgical suite. Each year, we come together to discuss the industry’s most pressing topics, network with peer leaders, and solve current problems faced in facilities across the country. Attendees will earn continuing education credits, meet with vendors who will positively impact performance, and take home valuable and implementable tools to apply upon return to their facilities. Learn more about our conferences below:

OR Business Management Conference

or-business-management-conference-logoThe annual OR Business Management Conference, founded in 2012, brings together business managers, financial directors, administrators, and C- and D-suite executives involve in running the logistics of the surgical suite, for valuable hands-on education, experience, and real-world insights to take back to their organizations.

As the only conference designed specifically for perioperative leaders and directors, OR Business Management Conference is a prime opportunity to network with and learn from peers facing similar day-to-day challenges and finding innovative solutions in the management of finances, operations, supplies, and performance of the surgical suite. Those new to an OR leadership role can attend the Pre-Conference Workshop: Fundamentals of OR Management – Certificate of Mastery to gain a deeper understanding of the skills and knowledge needed to effectively run the surgical suite.

In addition to the education and networking, the vendors who will be in attendance will offer solutions that can aid operations, technology, or people management. Connect with 30+ vendors over just 3 days – a significant time savings as opposed to scheduling individual meetings around regular work days. This allows attendees to bring home ways to solve current problems and create more lean business practices.

Educational content is put together by our experienced program planning committee comprised of chief executive and medical officers; directors of surgical and perioperative services, healthcare systems engineering, business operations and patient care; and clinical operations managers from more than 10 of the country’s leading institutions.

Our speaker line-up includes a wide range of facilities representing small community hospitals, large health systems, outpatient surgery centers and children’s hospitals. You’ll hear from 35 industry experts in their field who specialize in operations, healthcare administration, process improvement, data analytics and financial management for surgical service lines in their healthcare facilities. Plus, hear from speakers who manage both the clinical operations and business operations at their healthcare facilities. Learn how they are navigating the business of running the OR suite and walk away with actionable take-home tools you can implement in your healthcare system.

Key topics address core business needs in the areas of finances, operations, supply management, performance improvement, and data + analytics.

OR Manager Conference

or-manager-conference-logoThe OR Manager Conference, founded in 1987, is celebrating 35 years of helping the perioperative community. Since the early days of the conference, OR Manager has expanded and improved every year by expanding education offerings – including CEs on the exhibit hall floor, poster presentation and pre-conference workshops. The OR Manager Conference team relies on help from the Program Committee to help plan education opportunities that directly impact the everyday lives of OR Managers.

Since 2014, the PACU Manager Summit has expanded to host its own section on the show floor – the PACU Pavilion, featuring vendors focused on the postanesthetic phase of recovery. The PACU Manager Summit track offers education focused for PACU leaders to help better patient’s lives post surgery. The PACU Manager Summit breakout sessions are included in All-Access or PACU Manager Summit passes.

2020 marked the inaugural year of the ASC Leader Summit and today features ASC education for the expanding needs of same-day surgery. As ASCs expand around the country rapidly, it is more important for leaders to recognize those changes specific to the ambulatory surgery setting. The ASC Leader Summit breakout sessions are included in All-Access or ASC Leader Summit passes.

Leaders of the surgical suite attend the OR Manager Conference every year to get the hands-on education and experience to take back to their organizations. This is the #1 conference for perioperative managers and directors to receive continuing education credits, engage in networking with their community, and meet with vendors that have the potential to positively impact their organizations. Over 1,400 attendees register every year to:

  • Gather education and tactical resources through conference keynotes and breakout sessions
  • Network with colleagues (and have a little bit of fun!)
  • Earn continuing education credits
  • Visit with vendors/compare products/learn about the latest equipment for the operating room

Educational content is put together by the experienced program planning committee made up of education specialists, directors of surgical services, operating room managers, chief nursing officers, and other perioperative leaders.

Attendees leave both conferences with tactical take-home tools that they can implement immediately, in addition to being invigorated to return to their facilities and have a valuable impact. Join us at these conferences to learn how you can improve business and patient outcomes of the surgical suite.
