Driving Efficiency in Procedure, Clinics and Diagnostic Imaging Areas.
Perioperative, diagnostic and outpatient clinic services are the economic engine of a hospital. More than half of a health system’s revenue often comes from surgical cases. However, the costs of running operating rooms and procedural care areas, like cath labs and endoscopy, are also very high. Given the high impact that these departments can have on profitability, it is vitally important to optimize their efficiency.
After implementation in its operating rooms, Cleveland Clinic now operates at nearly 90% utilization year-round.
