Hospital Operating Room Case Study

“Knowing where staff is allows the OR to quickly adjust and find the right resource if one staff member needs a break or there’s been an add-on surgery, but someone’s out and needs to be replaced.”

“In general [Versus] makes us more efficient, and efficiency equals greater safety.”

Kimberlee McKay, MD

“It just gives [patients] a feeling of control … it gives them an opportunity to see what's happening. It gives us an opportunity to run a more efficient process, because we always know where they are, too.”

Your staff works hard to coordinate an inherently fluctuating surgery schedule. Balancing shorter and longer cases, elective and emergent patients, and the schedules of MAs, RNs, anesthesiologists, circulators, and surgeons can often result in a chaotic environment.

Control the chaos with the Versus Advantages™ OR patient flow system. By tracking patient and caregiver interaction with IR-RFID badges, you’ll know at a glance:

  • Where patients are and how long they’ve been waiting
  • Patient status (waiting for anesthesia, in surgery, post-op, etc.)
  • Room/bed status (available, assigned, in need of cleaning)
  • Where patients, physicians and caregivers should go next
  • Where bottlenecks are causing delays

Our patient flow software improves operating room efficiency by:

  • Automatically communicating need-to-know information to both staff and waiting families
  • Enabling staff to anticipate physician needs through increased situational awareness
  • Tracking case starts, room utilization and procedure times
  • Automating data entry through healthcare systems integration
  • Providing historical analytics for continual process improvement
  • Giving team leaders the knowledge to make real-time workflow and staffing adjustments
