T-Minus 30 … Starting Your OR On Time

April 4, 2017Anne Roy, SHC Vice President, will speak on Tuesday, April 4 at 1:00 PM at the AORN Global Surgical Conference & Expo 2017 in Boston, MA, as part of the conference’s Executive Leadership Summit.  Her presentation is titled T-Minus 30 … Starting Your OR On Time. As the revenue-generating engine of the hospital, the OR must run efficiently. When the first case of the day starts late, subsequent cases are delayed, causing bottlenecks and frustrating patients, surgeons, and staff. Learn how to successfully get your OR cases started on time, define roles for each member of the care team, and provide a matrix timeline to achieve this goal. A sample of the T- Minus 30 matrix will be provided to all attendees. A case study will illustrate data prior to implementation of the T- Minus 30 matrix, and the results once implemented.
