Wasted supplies, time, and space may be driving overall waster in your surgery center. When evaluating how to cut waste in your ambulatory surgery center (ASC), consider the following three ways to find real savings opportunities in the operating room (OR).
- Identify process improvements and safety standards
Assess the level of gown protection needed and draping practices for optimal coverage. Also evaluate safety standards compliance and maximize case pick efficiency.
- Evaluate efficiency of current procedure supply
Identify waste in custom pack components and explore ways to standardize your products. Further increase efficiencies by evaluating clinical practices.
- Uncover new cost saving initiatives
Evaluate the level of returns to the case pick area following each procedure. Be sure to also validate the right pack for each procedure and identify supply consolidation opportunities for more savings.
