Section 1
1. Does your ASC seek to improve cost savings without compromising patient care?

Finding innovative ways to lower expenses is the #2 priority among Health Care CEOs, according to The Advisory Board Company's latest Annual Health Care CEO Survey. A pilot study with one healthcare system found that using the S2 PROCEDURE PERFORMANCE technology allowed them to identify unused instrumentation to save significantly in processing costs.

    • Out of 137 instruments in a single tray, only 54 were actually used1
    • Streamlining this one tray resulted in 60% fewer instruments to process1
    • The organization achieved an estimated annual savings of $83,000 with just one tray1

2. Is your ASC challenged to meet demands due to the overwhelming volume of instruments to process?

Studies show that streamlining one tray can result in 60% fewer instruments to process, resulting in an estimated annual savings of $83,000 for just one tray.

3. On average, what percentage of surgical instruments are brought into your ASC OR but never touch a patient?

In one pilot study, 60% of surgical instruments from one tray never touched a patient, costing the hospital $2,650 to sterilize the unused instruments each week.

5. Would you benefit from being able to onboard new ASC OR staff faster, and knowing who is competent on specific procedures?

Studies show that digital training decreases staff training and orientation time, and improves staff competence. It also increases surgeon confidence in OR staff.1

Question 5 of 6
Section 6
6. Is your ASC challenged to adequately staff the OR due to:

50% of OR leaders have problems recruiting perioperative nurses (Labor Management Institute), and more than 500,000 RNs are expected to retire or leave the workforce by 2022.

Interactive digital training that is personalized to surgeon-specific preferences and instrument sequencing can decrease training and orientation time, improve staff competence, and increase surgeon confidence in staff.1
