Operating Room Solutions

Instant insight into your OR inventory

"The operating room poses the most challenging data collection point, but finding the right solution is crucial.
Capturing accurate data in this setting has a significant impact across the entire organization."

Operating rooms are your major revenue driver, while medical supplies are your second largest expense. Having clear visibility of your utilization and costs is crucial in the OR setting, yet sub-par systems fail to deliver accurate and timely data, impeding management and operational decisions.

While others focus on the symptoms…
We address the root cause. ​

Revenue reconciliation:

The complexity of the OR setting, combined with the use of such a broad range of inventory, makes documenting product usage a common challenge for busy nurses prioritizing patient care. Incomplete EMR records post-surgery result in a yearly loss of $1.5 billion for US hospitals (HFMA). Common rectification revenue leakage attempts, like extra nurses for documentation or audits, come at a cost. Advanced technology promises full reimbursement with minimal effort.

Cost Control

Patient safety and audit-proof documentation:

Digital, end-to-end implant tracking at the point of care, facilitated by advanced technology, prevents the use of unsafe items in surgery and ensures comprehensive data recording in the EHR. The consequences of errors in patient safety can be severe, with the average cost of a medical malpractice case related to the use of an expired or recalled item ranging between $5-7 million (AMA). Operating compliantly enables organizations to protect patients, meet regulatory UDI requirements, streamline audits like the Joint Commission, and avoid costly medico-legal litigation.

Balancing the Inventory:

Incorrect consumption data leads to procurement guesswork, resulting in high costs, surpluses, and wastage, causing an annual loss of $1.3M per US operating room (HFMA). Healthcare providers face challenges documenting the diverse mix of OR products – implants, non-sterilized items, consignment products, and off-contract items. Leading to an average of only 48% charge capture. With full inventory visibility and real-time utilization data, providers can regain control, make informed decisions, enhance vendor negotiation, and reduce costs. Data-driven management empowers efficient healthcare practices.

Other inefficiencies that inflate costs:

Lack of timely and accurate data make it difficult to tackle known areas of inefficiency in hospitals and surgery centers, such as:
 
  • Preference card variance
  • Item Master maintenance
  • Payer contracting
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Nurse satisfaction/retention
  • Consignment inventory
  • Supplier contracting
  • Wastage
  • And more…
