There is scarce information currently available about perioperative industry averages and OR operations best practices. OR Manager, as the leading source where perioperative managers and directors go to find answers to current problems, is leading the effort to pool information for both in-patient and out-patient facilities in 7 key areas of OR operations. Part 1 of this 2-part survey will cover the following areas: preference cards, first-case on time starts, sterile processing management, and case cancellations. Part 2 will cover block management, preop practices, and room turnover.

With these surveys, we hope to benchmark OR operations key performance indicators (KPIs) in the above areas and share leading best practices against which individual facilities can measure their own KPIs. We urge anyone who runs an OR to share their experience so we can make available this much needed data. Responses are voluntary and anonymous, and no personal identifying information will be shared.

You are able to participate in the survey until it closes on December 5, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
