Books; Blog; Operating Room and Surgeon Block Utilization Operating Room (OR) and block utilization in interactive data visualization reports? At HealthDataViz, we know from extensive work on surgical outcomes that high-quality, cost-effective surgical care is predicated in.   So, in both cases, when you’re looking at surgeons, and when you’re looking at OR rooms, the sweet spot, the place you want to be is about percent utilization. So, if we’re talking about physicians who are operating at 85 percent utilization of their block, it’s time to have a conversation with them. OPERATING ROOM (OR) UTILIZATION AND EFFICIENCY; A STUDY TO FIND OUT METHODS FOR IMPROVEMENT. Dr. Muhammad Ahmad Khan1, Dr. Motsim Sheraz2, Dr. Shakeel Ahmad3 ORIGINAL PROF ABSTRACT Introduction: Operating room (OR) is a key department in any institution and it runs with heavy resources.

Hospital Operating Room (OR) Utilization cost-effective care – not to mention happy patients and surgeons. We also know that to effectively manage these resources requires timely, accurate data and easily understandable reports. At top left is a calendar that makes it instantly clear whether resource utilization is higher (blue) or. It is important to note that Primary Hour Utilization is the measure used to reflect the utilization of all the available time in the Operating Room and it is the measure most referenced comparatively in performance benchmarks. Overall for this four month period, Primary Hour Utilization was % and the Block Time assigned utilization by those surgeons/services that were slated to use that. xtensive operating room (OR) utilization is a goal of OR directors and hospital administrators. Un-fortunately, the optimum level of utilization is not well defined, nor is it clear what tradeoffs are required to achieve optimum utilization. We sought to identify those factors that influence optimum utiliza-tion.   No matter how you calculate your operating room utilization, if it’s less than 80% there’s room for improvement. Even if you’re happy with your utilization as a metric, you know you have several problems: New surgeons can’t get block time, block owners resist changes, nurses and anesthesiologists want more predictable schedules, and your management wants more efficiency.

Operating Room (OR) data for each case is collected and entered into the operating room’s Surgi-server. This data was then down-loadedto a PC-compatibletext file format. This information was analyzed using STATA, a statistical package, and other PC software packages. The utilization of the operating rooms is studied and analyzed from a two monthFile Size: 6MB.   The basic resources needed to provide a good or service are financial, human, technological, and physical. Appropriate resource utilization in health care is everyone’s responsibility. A nurse, as a major healthcare provider, is increasingly held accountable for resource use and the costs of patient care. Nurses have a key role in determining healthcare resource needs, obtaining those resources, and often participating in the allocation of scarce resources. Most large, complex health systems rely on block schedules for managing the complexity of operating room utilization. The concept has a visceral appeal to it — give the surgeon or the service. Resource Utilization When your operating and procedural areas aren’t generating the revenue they should, the problem is usually not one of performance, but resource utilization. This means getting the most out of your resources, from supplies to your most important resource – your people.
