Colorectal Surgery: A Deeper View

Success Measures

Opportunity Identification:

  • Identify colon cancer prevalence by zip code to prioritize education and community outreach on colon cancer screenings.
  • Analyze the relationship between on-time OR starts and OR costs.
  • Quantify the cost savings of reduced LOS for colorectal surgery because of perioperative practices that optimize recovery.

Process Improvements:

  • Reduce the time from diagnosis to surgery.
  • Increase the percentage of on-time OR starts.
  • Increase the percentage of patients that follow an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathway.

Outcomes Improvement:

  • Decrease LOS for patients undergoing colorectal surgery for colon cancer.
  • Decrease OR costs.
  • Improve patient satisfaction for patients diagnosed with colon cancer.
