Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Faced with limited space in which to perform supply and instrument processing for up to 70 operating rooms, it became necessary to relocate much of the case cart building process to an off-site location roughly ten miles from the hospital. The success of this move depended on the development of a completely new case cart management system to ensure an efficient, effective, reliable, and safe system for delivery of supplies and surgical instrumentation. To address the creation of this new system, a socio-technical design approach was employed. A multidisciplinary team was formed from the process stakeholders: representatives of the perioperative surgical team and educators, informatics, and central processing. This team evaluated the institutions needs and developed a case cart system that integrated personnel and technological resources. Process gaps were identified and bridged with informatics applications, new standards of work, and education modules for all levels of staff. The result of this collaboration was a system that allows the case cart team to meet the ever-changing needs of the medical centers operating rooms quickly and efficiently while operating from a satellite location. Increased integration of technology in the case cart workflow was crucial in allowing staff to coordinate case cart builds and deliveries from a distance. The details of this project may be of interest to other organizations considering shifting OR support functions to off-site facilities or increasing efficiency with technology.
