    3. Discuss how advanced analytics bridge the gap between the EMR and the OR.
  • March 24 Webinar: Using AI for Dynamic Block Management

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Traditional approaches for managing perioperative block allocation are rigid and often lead to underutilized ORs and unsatisfied surgeons. For multiple reasons, including manual processes, a lack of trusted data, limited visibility of available OR time, and more, OR utilization is effectively capped with these methods. In this webinar, learn how artificial intelligence and automated workflows can help organizations dynamically manage blocks and take their perioperative performance to the next level.

    Improving access to available OR time

    Creating visibility and transparency in block management

    Simplifying the process of booking OR time

    Streamlining the process of managing the block schedule

  • FREE WEBINAR: Leadership, Policy & Transparency: Driving Sustainable Value, Efficiency, & Surgeon Utilization

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Managing operating rooms is hard, especially without access to reliable and readily available data. EHRs, built to capture information about patients and their care, do not provide the required level of data visibility or reliability needed to make daily, let alone strategic decisions about expensive healthcare assets such as operating rooms. Ensuring surgeons have optimal access, knowing exactly where and how to drive efficiency, and delivering value to surgeons, patients, and staff is a constant challenge. A challenge that requires greater visibility into available operating room time and key performance indicators.

    • Delivered transparency that has changed surgeon practices

    Additionally, iQueue for Operating Rooms’ Product Implementation Manager will walk through exciting and proven technology that has enabled organizations like WakeMed to leverage predictive and prescriptive analytics that break through historical barriers to OR value and efficiency.


    Learning Objectives

    • Analyze OR utilization and identify strategies for improvement
    • Explain the benefits of creating more open time in the OR
    • Understand how to effectively leverage data to change surgeon practices
    • Explore how new technologies are optimizing operating room capacity

  • FREE Webinar: Surgical Hands: A Chemical Battlefield in the OR

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Occupational contact dermatitis (OCD), an inflammatory skin condition that occurs due to workplace exposure, can have long-term consequences, causing some healthcare workers to miss work and even change jobs. Nurses working in surgical wards and intensive care units are at the highest risk among healthcare workers. Surgical gloves are a common culprit of both irritant and allergic contact dermatitis in the healthcare setting. Glove-associated irritants include wet work, friction, air occlusion, excessive sweating, and poor hand hygiene. In addition, wearers may incur allergic contact dermatitis to chemical additives, especially accelerators that are added to speed up the manufacturing process, in both latex and synthetic gloves.
