Understanding the Impact of Workforce Strategy on Surgical Performance

To understand performance there is a need to track productivity in Surgical Services. Many Health Systems still define the performance of their surgical services teams based on measures of volume. Yet most volume- and effort-based metrics miss important factors like clinical and financial outcomes and, crucially, the workforce resources required to drive those results. In this webinar, we’ll argue for a re-defined, activity-based and outcomes-driven approach to measuring productivity in Surgical Services that may change how you think about your operational scorecard.


Use Data to Connect Clinical Workforce Strategy to Financial and Clinical Outcomes

By watching this recording you will learn how to:

  • Examine the flaws in the current approaches to measuring workforce effectiveness,
  • Understand what an activity-based approach means and how it can work to highlight Surgical Services performance across all resources involved in the operative process,
  • Determine the composition of data required to truly measure this level of performance and productivity,
  • Pin point the potential organizational and cultural challenges associated with this approach.
