Foundational Elements for Establishing
Operational Excellence in Robotics
By identifying key elements of your operational playbook, team
structure, and program awareness, your program can be elevated to
operational excellence. Through transparency, process building practices,
and boots on the ground leadership, your program can grow and improve
exponentially. Our dyad model will pave the way. Fostering relationships
with our team members and providers using data has proven to be a
turning point in our program. Creating a robust dashboard with " good
data in, good data out " to share clinical and financial metrics improves
engagement on multiple levels with your providers and staff members.
Improvements in communication with a daily wrap sheet during surgery
that gives actionable data to leadership, steering committee members,
and the team as a whole is a best-in-class tool to move your program
forward. These tools will assist in driving your efforts for lean process
improvement including standardization and reductions in variability.
» Discuss lean processes to increase standardization and reduce
variability with actionable tools and follow through.
» Describe how to build an actionable dashboard with good data in to get
good data out.
» Describe how to build and grow your team with proven best practices of
open communication and daily wraps.

Finance Fundamentals for New Managers:
Understanding Revenues, Charges and Costs
Navigating the complicated structure of healthcare finance and
accounting can be overwhelming for new managers of Operating Rooms.
Often, managers struggle with questions such as:
» Do faster turnover of ORs help generate more revenues?
» If cases take longer than usual in the OR is that a good thing because
nursing charges are time-based?
» Why is it so difficult to know the actual costs?
With ever increasing regulatory pressure for transparency in pricing, it
is important for OR managers to understand the relationship, as well
as the underlying components, between revenues, charges, and costs.
These relationships get even more complicated in Inpatient settings due
to accumulation of charges from non-OR units.
This presentation, using real examples and data, will attempt to
explain that charges are " suggested list prices " ; revenues are " realized
reimbursements " ; Inefficiencies lead to higher costs and eventually
higher charges, but not necessarily higher revenues.
» Describe the differences between revenues, charges, and costs for
» Discuss Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups (MSDRG) and
MSDRG-Weights for Inpatients.
» Describe the differences between fixed versus variable, and direct
versus indirect costs. Discuss the role of inefficiencies in driving up
costs (and charges).

BANDAIDS Education: Increased Postoperative
Education and Compliance the Easy Way
The easiest way to increase postoperative education and compliance
is to provide education preoperatively and in an easy-to-understand
format. The BANDAID acronym helps to increase the patients
understanding of postoperative teaching. It stands for, B: Bleeding, A:
Activity, N: Nausea, Vomiting, D: Diet, A: Acceptable Pain, I: Infection,
D: Don'ts. This session will show how the implementation of BANDAID
teaching not only increases patient education and compliance, but it
also drastically improves patient experience scores. Through the process
of adding BANDAID teaching to the preoperative checklist, patients are
presented with the information prior to anesthesia in a handout. The
nurses verbally discuss each section with the patients, who are given
an opportunity to discuss any questions, concerns, etc. The BANDAID
teaching is listed on all discharge instructions, and on postop Day 1,
patients receive an automated text message reminding them about their
education with instructions for callback if needed.
» Describe discharge instructions that would be easy for patients to
» Discuss three separate formats of content that should be delivered to
» Describe how BANDAID is applicable for all surgical patients.

Improving OR/CSP Efficiencies, Staff Satisfaction
and the Financial Bottom Line
Instrument pods can save time in room turnover resulting in enough
cumulative time to add on a new surgery per day. Instrument pods
increase Central Sterile Processing efficiencies, OR efficiencies and
OR productivity. Learn how the instrument pod can eliminate delays,
improve productivity and ensure on time starts. Learn how the
efficiencies can lead to improved employee satisfaction in both inpatient
and outpatient settings.
» Describe how to use instrument pods to eliminate repetitive chores.
» Discuss how instrument pods effect OR and SPD efficiencies and
improve staff satisfaction.
» Describe how instrument pods can positively impact the financial
