In this 60-minute webinar, join Brooks DuBose from LeanTaaS’ iQueue for Operating Rooms implementation team as he explains where the opportunities lie and how to drill down in order to come up with actionable steps and strategies for meaningful performance improvement. While turnovers and delays are good indicators of efficiency and certainly important metrics for surgeon, patient, and staff satisfaction, they are not the operating room’s most important metrics. In order to drive optimal perioperative performance, leadership needs easy access to current, actionable, and reliable operating room utilization metrics.
