How to increase operating theatre productivity – proven efficiency gains
A multinational study led by Professor Michael Greiling including hospitals in Germany, France, the UK and Sweden showed a significant increase in operating-theatre efficiency after the implementation of ProcedurePak packs. Total time savings of up to 59 percent were recorded, not only in the O.R. itself but the whole chain, from ordering materials to waste management.
Significant time and cost savings, as well as enhanced staff satisfaction were among the benefits reported when implementing the ProcedurePak solution from Mölnlycke Health Care. As noted, a generic pack solution is not enough; the pack compilation process is of the utmost importance in achieving optimal efficiency. Every individually customised pack needs to contain the right components of the appropriate quality and in the correct quantity. If it fails to do so, productivity in the operating theatre is decreased.
Mölnlycke Health Care employs experienced O.R. professionals who advise on pack design and pack changes to guarantee optimal assembly of the ProcedurePak packs. With more than 10,000 unique configurations of our ProcedurePak packs and more than four million packs delivered annually, we are European market leaders2.
