We know how frustrating it can be for hospital administrators to respond to complaints or requests from surgeons while juggling so many other job responsibilities. After all, surgeon retention and recruitment are top priorities for any facility, and understandably so—operating rooms typically account for nearly 60% of a hospital’s revenue. At NexGen Surgical, we are flipping the script on the usual administrator-surgeon relationship, freeing you up to focus on other duties. At the same time, we empower surgeons to become perioperative leaders who have the tools and control to maximize operating room efficiencies.
A Smarter Way to Operate
Surgeons are part of the team at NexGen Surgical, and they share our vision of hospitals being our customers and clients. Rather than being solely focused on working through their daily caseload, our surgeons are empowered to improve OR efficiency, implement new policies and procedures and change block schedules around. In turn, we support our surgeons by using advanced analytics tools that employ machine learning to analyze the patterns and preferences of surgeons and recommend block time that will likely go unused weeks in advance, allowing surgeons (and their administrators) to find new cases to fill the time.
Empowering Surgeons and Their Staff
Our advanced analytics tools put more control in the hands of surgeons and their staff, who must balance both OR time and clinical consults, pre- and post-op appointments, meetings and conferences. Surgeons can make adjustments to their OR schedules as plans change. The information is made available in real-time to either their service or the entire surgical community. Engaging surgeons through data gives them more options to adjust and schedule OR time, helping hospitals capture hundreds of hours of OR time per month that would have otherwise been wasted.
Using Technology to Influence Perioperative Leadership
At NexGen Surgical, we strive to work smarter and base our decisions on reliable data. Along with our sister company, CCI Anesthesia, we leverage real-time reporting of best-in-class perioperative KPIs powered by Merlin. We are also experienced in implementing tablet-based EMR systems to capture performance metrics. This data helps to guide our recommendations on staffing, schedules and operating room utilization in ways that support your bottom line and ability to provide greater access to care for your patients.
Transitioning to NexGen Surgical
Administrators who are ready to release the burden of surgeon management from their shoulders should strongly consider partnering with NexGen Surgical. For you, we can keep your surgical practice running like a well-oiled, profitable machine that works to achieve your facility’s unique goals. After thoroughly inspecting your current surgical program and needs, we will begin by attracting the most skilled, talented and experienced surgeons to your department and expand or add needed service lines. Proper staffing of surgical specialties will keep your ORs running at capacity and optimize utilization—offering an enhanced ability to meet the needs of your community.
Keeping Your Budget Balanced
Discovering more value in your surgical department is one of the biggest perks of transitioning to NexGen Surgical. Rather than looking at other areas where costs can be cut to widen margins, recovering lost value in your surgical department is almost always more worthwhile. The full team of surgeons we will place at your facility will help maximize your surgical volume potential while also reversing inefficiencies dragging down productivity.
