There are many reasons to improve operating room efficiency with operating room scheduling management software and processes from the SMI Group. A primary reason is that it can reduce errors and improve operational efficiency. Automating the scheduling process saves time and reduces the risk of human errors that lead to empty rooms, double bookings, and other inefficiencies that cost time and money. This leads to both improved profits and patient outcomes.
By optimizing your hospital and operating room scheduling process, patients can be seen more quickly and efficiently (improving patient access), which can lead to better patient outcomes and higher patient satisfaction. Improving operating room efficiency can also increase your administration and line staff satisfaction and retention. By reducing the amount of time spent on administrative tasks such as scheduling, they can focus more on patient care and other more important core tasks.
By investing in complete scheduling technology, hospitals and ambulatory centers can help their operating rooms run more efficiently, boost patient access, promote patient throughput, increase your market share, all resulting in bottom line improvement.
