OR Block Utilization Challenges

The stakes couldn't be higher when considering the cost implications of underutilized OR time. With estimates measuring OR time at a staggering $100 per minute based on nationwide studies, hospitals and surgery centers struggle with the pressing need to maximize every minute efficiently.

Conventional block scheduling often falls short, plagued by inefficiencies and inequities. Surgeons and schedulers encounter hurdles in accurately predicting future block utilization, leading to missed opportunities and suboptimal resource allocation. Inaccurate scheduling of surgical case times compounds delays, affecting not only operational efficiency but also surgeon satisfaction and patient care.

Maximize Operating Suite Utilization

Leap Rail steps in as a game-changer, empowering perioperative leaders with actionable insights and intuitive tools to maneuver OR capacity management seamlessly.

Effective Block Utilization Predictions

Leveraging predictive and prescriptive analytics, our AI engine forecasts future block utilization, equipping surgeons and schedulers with invaluable predictions of future block utilization to proactively manage allocations and caseload. Our real-time analytics provide direct access to transparent data, enabling informed decision-making "on the fly."

By combining AI predictions and smart mobile notifications to drive physician engagement, organizations are able to improve block utilization by over 15%.Going a step further, Leap Rail gives OR managers recommendations for future block allocation for surgeons based on actual caseload, even for surgeons without existing blocks, bringing much needed objectivity to conventional block review meetings.

Collaborative Block Release Management

Through our web-based block release management system, Leap Rail facilitates automatic and voluntary block releases, driving physician engagement and ensuring timely accessibility of OR time.

This policy-driven, collaborative approach allows surgeons the ability to request notifications if desired times are released, making it possible to more effectively fill operating suite availability. The self-serve nature of this functionality empowers surgeons, schedulers, and OR managers to seamlessly coordinate block allocations, ensuring alignment with organizational goals and priorities.
