OPERATING ROOMS: 60 percent of margin comes from perioperative services at better performing hospitals

These statistics come from the consulting firm Surgical Directions:

  • Over 68 percent of revenue comes from perioperative services at better-performing hospitals
  • 60 percent of margin from perioperative services at these better-performing hospitals

Most of this article is about tackling the challenge of staffing the surgical suite.  The consultants recommend establishing a SURGICAL SERVICES EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (SSEC), which should include surgeons, nurses, hospital executives, and anesthesia providers.  The specific responsibilities of the SSEC are itemized.  It is recommended that the SSEC have a huddle each day to plan for surgical cases scheduled to take place over the next 3 to 5 days.  The OR staffing tool developed by the firm is also described.
