SpecialtyCare Adds OR Management and Analytics Solution 

SpecialtyCare, a provider of outsourced clinical services for operating rooms, has announced the launch of SpecialtyCare OptimizeOR, a user-friendly decision support and analytics system designed to help hospitals improve efficiency in perioperative performance.

OptimizeOR is a data-driven Software as a Service (SaaS) application that enables perioperative leaders to optimize their staff and OR utilization as well as standardize supplies and implant use across surgeons. OptimizeOR has an intuitive interface developed with OR leaders’ needs in mind, helping them increase efficiency in the OR and buttress surgeon productivity and satisfaction.

Users have access to key performance measures and can easily manipulate powerful analytics to produce presentation-ready materials specifically designed to drive and represent financial and clinical improvement.

“High-performing operating rooms are essential for hospital success in today’s value-based health care environment,” SpecialtyCare CEO Sam Weinstein said. “To continue to improve outcomes and lower readmission rates, OR leaders must have access to data that can uncover opportunities to maximize efficiency. This product is a natural extension of SpecialtyCare’s commitment to equip our customers with the resources required to provide the highest quality of patient care at the most responsible cost.”

OptimizeOR is powered by Syus, the industry-standard perioperative analytics tool, and by AORN Syntegrity. SpecialtyCare selected Syus after reviewing several other products and witnessing the results firsthand.

“We are delighted to have been selected by SpecialtyCare to power OptimizeOR,” said Kevin O’Hara, CEO of Syus. “SpecialtyCare is a leader in bringing efficiency and improved outcomes to the OR and we are proud to be able to further those efforts.”

OptimizeOR has access to the nearly 4 million surgical cases in the Syus database. Using that data alongside SCOPE, the SpecialtyCare Operative Procedural Registry, the largest allied health database of its kind, will give SpecialtyCare customers an unmatched ability to determine benchmarks, implement best practices, and compare performance for improved medical and economic outcomes.
