When it comes to improving hospital productivity, operating rooms are of top priority. Consider the fact that surgeons are often some of a hospital’s best-paid specialists and that a single surgical procedure can pull dozens of hours from physicians, assistants and nurses. And that’s just the workload. Surgeries ultimately account for half of all hospital revenue. Operating rooms are one of the costliest – and important areas of a hospital. Improvements made in operating rooms can pay enormous dividends and yield the most impressive impact on a hospital’s bottom line.
As a cost-intensive environment, the OR must be managed efficiently. This conference will explore operating room organizational structure, financial management, accounting principles, inventory control, operations management, and more. Detailing the elements necessary for the efficient functioning of the operating room, this program is designed to help OR managers and hospital staff who are actively engaged in day-to-day operating room management or who have broad administrative or fiscal responsibilities for the operating room suite.
Faced with increasing patient volumes, declining reimbursements and overworked ED staff, hospitals must be prepared to leverage observation patient management. Well-structured observation units have resulted in financial gains, improved clinical outcomes and superior patient satisfaction ratings. The Observation Patient Management Forum will highlight the pertinent challenges facing observation unit staff – ED physicians, hospitalists, case managers and billing and coding professionals. Additionally, the conference will highlight how and why hospitals that are not utilizing observation patient management are leaving money on the table. The forum will allow you to walk away with an understanding of current trends and market practices, and innovative strategies to prepare yourself for the challenges that lie ahead. Learn best practices in patient management and examine strategies to improve care, increase satisfaction and achieve organizational goals.
