The superior efficacy of machine learning based AI tools

With all the factors involved in optimizing OR utilization, assigning OR slots is a complex proposition. When you consider that the average cost to run a fully equipped OR is now at approximately $1,000 per hour in staff and equipment costs, it is more important than ever for hospitals to keep as many ORs in use as possible. As hospitals work to clear elective surgery backlogs from the COVID-19 pandemic and get back to their normal business, they need solutions that can help them optimize the scheduling process, accommodate changes and cancellations, and increase OR utilization.
