Surgical Services Optimization™

Operating rooms that are inefficient and underperforming lead to mismanaged resources and staff. With increased pressure to decrease costs, the operating room is one area to find savings. Optimizing efficiency and workflow in the operating room is crucial to maximizing functionality and profitability in one of the most expensive areas of the hospital.

Performance Solutions' on-site, data-driven approach utilizes LEAN, Just in Time (pull), flow, leveling, standardized work for workflow design and 5S methodology principles throughout the implementation program. Data analytics support continues beyond implementation with a proprietary dashboard to ensure continued improvement and alignment with hospital objectives.

The steps of our O.R. efficiency program include:

  • Conducting a comprehensive on-site assessment to establish gaps and opportunities. We gather data, interview MDs and staff and map processes and workflows
  • Developing a custom work plan to address key opportunities
  • Assigning performance improvement teams and leaders and approving project charters to address selected opportunities for improvement
  • Training on Lean principles and methodologies and guiding the application of these trainings through implementing changes to processes and systems, resulting in a continuous improvement culture
  • Conducting monthly on-site training and work groups to accelerate process improvement and change
  • Rigorously monitoring program metrics to evaluate performance results against goals, and taking action on further insights to promote continuous improvement
