Operating Room Excellence: How One Hospital System is Driving Improvements with the Use of Advanced Analytics
Mission Health in North Carolina has always been dedicated to expanding access to care. To preserve this commitment in an era of declining reimbursement rates, Mission needed better access to data for quick and flexible decision-making. As at most hospitals, operating rooms are Mission’s biggest revenue generator, but they also represent a significant cost center. So, leveraging their new analytics capabilities to drive operational improvements across their system of operating rooms was a strategic opportunity. Mission now has improved ability to drive care and operational improvements with integrated data and analytic tools like their OR Dashboard—resulting in dramatic improvements including a 20% increase in first-case on-time surgical starts.
