Maximizing service line efficiency, quality and profitability is a hot topic, particularly with rising patient care demands, changing reimbursement models, and estimated physician shortfalls. This webinar takes a look at three solutions beginning in the operating room and expanding to the entire patient care journey.
1st solution: A unique clinical and operational service model focused on the specialization of qualified, reimbursable clinical labor to optimize surgeon involvement and reduce OR costs.
2nd solution: Taking a holistic view of the service line through the patient care journey to produce a value stream map to understand the current state. Assisting staff with comparing this current state to the ideal future state, comparing national benchmarks and clinical best practices helps your staff innovate and co-create an individualized plan to get your service line to a higher level.
3rd solution: Utilizing dashboard metrics of the critical to success factors, to sustain and improve your service line.

• Identify key operational and clinical indicators of orthopedic service line efficiency
• Describe how Surgical First Assists can add value in the OR
• List the steps in developing and/or evaluating or building an orthopedic service line
