There is not a one-size-fits-all approach for effectively managing blocks. Each health system has its own unique structure, goals, and changing circumstances. Dynamic block management supports hospitals in unlocking their OR capacity and evolves with an organization: if they are recovering from a surgical backlog, or deciding to shift their block ownership model, or undergoing a reorganization to expand specific service lines.

In this webinar, we will review case studies and consider best practices from leading hospitals to understand how each has applied dynamic block management in their own journey to maximize OR scheduling efficiency and drive strategic growth.

  • Strategies to identify what block operating model is the best fit for a health system
  • Identify indicators of how and when to adjust block management practices/models to meet evolving priorities
  • Review examples of how a leading hospital has applied these practices and the benefits they have seen.
