Since most hospitals have cancelled or postponed elective surgeries during COVID-19, addressing the large backlog and restoring elective surgery caseload is one of OR leadership’s top post-pandemic priorities. This will require careful planning and execution in the coming weeks and months to identify the backlog, manage block versus open time, open more time to do more cases, and accommodate the pent-up volume given each hospital’s available resources (rooms, staffing, locations).

Based on discussions with iQueue customers and other OR leaders across the country we have developed a set of tools and step-by-step approach to restoring your elective surgery caseload post COVID-19.

Join LeanTaaS Senior Director of Client Services Ashley Walsh and Director of Product Management Zetong Li for “Restoring Your Elective Surgery Caseload Post COVID-19”. In this session, Ashley and Zetong discuss and demonstrate:

  • Tools to estimate your backlog and how long it will take for your institution to address it
  • Tools to create more open time in your ORs, ASCs, procedure rooms/endoscopy suites, give clinics easy access to them and pack them with cases during normal and extended business hours as well as weekends
  • Recommended action plan over the next few weeks and months

Links to the materials discussed in the webinar and an executive summary are also available after registering at right.
