Did you know that surgery generates about
60% of total hospital revenue? Your job is not only saving lives, it also
accounts for a huge part of your hospital’s profitability. And as we all get older, there will be even
more surgery! Researchers predict that, by 2020, surgeries will have increased by almost
47%! Imagine what that will do for your hospital’s
income! But…to deal with the growing number of patients,
you’ll have to work more efficiently. And that could be a challenge. Because today’s operating rooms are very
complex environments, impeding efficient routines. They’re stuffed with all kinds of systems
and devices, causing cable clutter and distraction. Maintenance downtimes and cumbersome technical
setups slow down your workflow. And people run in and out for all kinds of
reasons. In short, critical time and resources are
wasted. To run your surgical suite better and face
future challenges, you’ll need a solution that integrates all devices in the OR. Why? Because integration saves time and money. Result? More efficient procedures and higher
hospital revenue. But watch out! Not all solutions offer true
integration. Here’s why in a nutshell: Traditional systems need a huge stack of cables
to connect devices like endoscopy cameras, surgical displays, patient monitoring systems
and C-arms. It’s very difficult to set up your operating
room with this cable clutter. Finding the right cables for each device can take ages! Even when you finally start operating, you
won’t have access to all the information you need, like lab results or body scans.
So you’ll have a hard time making well-informed decisions! And how about sharing your information with
team members or someone who’s not in the OR? Well, good luck with that! That’s why we developed NEXXIS, a digital
operating room platform that boosts operational efficiency, increases patient safety and generates
more revenue. How?
By using a central IP hub to integrate cameras, lighting, monitors, scanners, image view boxes,
and so on. With this kind of system, you’ll just build
and grow as you need to. The possibilities are endless.
Because IP-based devices all use the same type of cable, you can simply plug and play.
Setting up the operating room becomes a piece of cake, and there’s no more cable clutter. The system pulls information from wherever
it’s located and shares it over the network with whomever needs it, whether inside the
hospital or at remote sites. And all this without delay! Your colleagues will be able to observe operations
from outside the OR, which means more staff can follow the procedure for better clinical
results. Key patient information will be at your fingertips,
so you can make more informed decisions. Without losing sight of your patient’s privacy. The whole system is managed remotely. So IT
can do maintenance and upgrades without entering the OR, which reduces repair and maintenance
downtimes. But the OR also needs to be profitable. By
streamlining workflow, you’ll handle more patients per day with fewer resources. Ultimately, this digital OR platform will
help save your hospital thousands of dollars each day. Barco NEXXIS: smoother workflow and higher
revenue through networked integration. For more information about Barco’s digital
