Improve Existing OR Efficiency & Workflow
Surgical suites are dynamic environments that require tight coordination of clinical staff, equipment, and patients to effectively manage throughput. These factors create the perfect opportunity for deployment of a real-time workflow control system.
ORControl uses real-time information to monitor processes so that tasks can be executed as efficiently as possible. The system provides instant accountability by continuously answering, “Who is doing what and where at this very moment?” ORControl focuses staff and physicians on executing tasks in the here and now, rather than on waiting for after-the-fact reports and analyses. The system is proactive not reactive. All stakeholders have simultaneous, digital access to the same timely information, and they receive alerts enabling them to immediately address problems and prevent delays.
ORControl uses RTLS (Real Time Locating Systems) to automate the manual process of tracking patient location and case status. Its intuitive interface allows for continuous coordination of rooms, procedures, patients, schedules, and critical equipment. Information can be transparently viewed by all those with a need to know both inside and outside the preoperative suite. Most modifications are executed with the touch of a finger. The “forward looking” design of the system constantly reevaluates and modifies the day-of-procedure schedule. The system also automatically alerts the appropriate parties when situations arise that may cause delays in the immediate future. Due to its highly integrated design and implementation, ORControl requires virtually no training and does not alter any existing clinical practice or IT system.
