LeanTaaS to Offer Continuing Education Credit at OR Manager 2019
Perioperative Leaders to Gain Insight From Session on OR Capacity Management
SANTA CLARA, Calif. and NEW ORLEANS — LeanTaaS, Inc., a Silicon Valley predictive analytics and machine learning company that specializes in improving healthcare operations, will provide continuing education (CE) credits to perioperative leaders who attend the presentation "Using Predictive Analytics to Improve OR Capacity Management" at the OR Manager Conference in New Orleans. The session, being offered on Sept. 19 at 10:15 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in Booth 937, will help attendees understand why conventional operating room metrics are inadequate as the basis for measuring OR utilization and surgeon performance.
This education program will look at OR time from an administrative perspective and introduce the concept of collectable time as an effective strategy for decision-making. "OR time plays a vital role in each hospital system," said Ashley Walsh, senior director of client services for LeanTaaS and presenter for the CE sessions. "And maximizing opportunities to improve access to the OR is a significant concern.
"Block time utilization is a struggle in many hospital systems, and this important learning opportunity will be beneficial for perioperative leaders as they consider implementing a data analytics strategy," Walsh continued.
The session will highlight:
· How to communicate the value of using a more data-driven metric called "collectable time" to measure and improve OR block utilization.
· Specific examples of how predictive analytics, machine learning, and mobile technologies have been used at UCHealth, OhioHealth and other providers to improve OR performance by over $400,000 per OR per year.
