The importance of measuring out-of-body time in the operating room
And how this metric led one hospital to over $200k in savings
Out-of-body time is a metric often overlooked by hospitals when analyzing the efficiencies of their operating rooms. But hospitals who use out-of-body time in their OR analysis are seeing huge gains in safety and efficiency.
For this case study, we analyzed ‘out-of-body time’ in 649 gynecologic procedures performed at Sourasky Medical Center.
The data demonstrated a remarkably high amount of operative time spent with the camera outside the body.
Download the case study to see how this information was used to identify a previously unknown source of inefficiency and save the hospital over $200,000.
