PRLog - Mar. 18, 2014 - MADISON, Wis. -- OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community sponsored by Wellbe, is hosting a complimentary webinar with Sandra L Nettrour, PA-C, DFAAPA, Orthopedic and Neurosurgery Service Line Coordinator at Butler Health System, on "Total Joint Replacement- Improving Day of Surgery Efficiency and Throughput."

Organic growth of total joint replacement volume is growing at 3-4% per year as the number of physicians entering orthopedic residency programs is in decline. Cuts in Medicare reimbursement for total joints is forecast every year producing stressors for the surgeon to perform more surgery just to tread water financially. Increasing surgical volume without increasing time in the day requires a team approach to process improvements. By taking a fresh look at operating room processes, it’s possible to accomplish this goal.

Discussion points include:

• Pre-op patient preparedness

• Resolving inherent conflicts

• Surgical case order

• Tracking case efficiency

• Surgical tray streamlining
