Paper-based surgical scheduling processes or static EMR form-based scheduling can cause a host of problems. For example, according to research from Johns Hopkins, lost or misplaced consent forms alone cost hospitals approximately $580,000 per year. Forms are missing in 66% of surgeries, which delays 10% of surgical procedures. Back and forth between scheduler, patient, surgeon, equipment suppliers and others coordinating the surgery also present opportunities for miscommunication and productivity loss and are common pitfalls with siloed, paper-based scheduling processes.

Surgical practices are also being required to do more with less. Insurance companies keep increasing the requirements for secure surgery authorization. Many surgical practices are hampered by medical staffing shortages, increasing the administrative burden on existing staff. This can lead to communication issues with patients, referring physicians, insurance companies, and other parties. 

Problems with managing surgery scheduling can also affect your practice’s bottom line. Improper booking or underutilization of block time can cost your operating room $62 per minute.  

One solution is to replace outdated manual workflows with automated surgical scheduling software.
