Increasing operating room efficiency through electronic medical record analysis (PDF 1492 Kb)

Published- May 2016. Author - Manuel C Vallejo.

We used electronic medical record (EMR) analysis to determine errors in operating room (OR) time utilisation. Over a two year period EMR data of 44,503 surgical procedures was analysed for OR duration, on-time, first case, and add-on time performance, within 19 surgical specialities. Maximal OR time utilisation at our institution could have saved over 302,620 min or 5,044 hours of OR efficiency over a two year period. Most specialities (78.95%) had inaccurately scheduled procedure times and therefore used the OR more than their scheduled allotment time.
