Hospital & Surgical Information Systems

Data and Information Management

Efficient Hospital Information Management Systems & Clinical Data Management begins with OR Efficiencies.

We’ve all heard the expressions “Information is Power” and “You can’t manage what you can’t Measure” — Many organizations still lack the technology to produce complete and accurate reports; many organizations lack in-house staff with the background in statistical methods that is required to perform appropriate analyses, test the statistical assumptions, make adjustments for missing data. In organizations where these factors prevail, there is no quantifiable foundation to guide decision making.

Data and the effective conversion of data into useful information is critical guiding fact-based decisions; to minimize or eliminate internal politics as a factor influencing decisions. The OR Efficiencies team possesses one of the most extensive data-base resources in the industry. Our data base and aligned resources allows comprehensive and “apples-to-apples” benchmarking of your organization to others; allows understanding of potentials; allows the development of dash-boards to guide program improvement and management.

  • My hospitals department of anesthesiology was falling apart due to stresses of the operating room.

    My hospitals department of anesthesiology was falling apart due to stresses of the operating room.

    We lost a number of doctors and I feared losing my CRNAs because of our issues. Jerry personally assisted me to bring stability to the anesthesiology program and his team improved OR efficiencies and general operations so that now we're able to recruit and retain highly skilled anesthesia staff.

  • The hospital CEO and the dean made it my responsibility to fix the OR without holding any other parties accountable.

    The hospital CEO and the dean made it my responsibility to fix the OR without holding any other parties accountable.

    Our anesthesiology program was greatly in deficit due to the staffing costs associated with a terribly inefficient OR. I was losing faculty and could not recruit to our program due to the imbalance of work-load and compensation package. Jerry brought facts and education. He assisted in mediating our relationships and educated us on how to move forward. The assistance Jerry provided me and my program assisted me not only to improve our present situation and be successful in my position but also to move on in my own career.
