Director of Perioperative Services, Adventist Health White Memorial

One of the main challenges operating rooms currently face is poor room turnover times. Every minute an OR sits underutilized creates patient care delays and causes both financial and operational strains on the entire surgical department – from admission and registration, through pre-op, surgery and the PACU. Learn how TAGNOS solutions leverage a combination of real-time technologies, AI-machine learning and mobile communication to reduce its overall room turnover times.

Utilizing real-time data from automated alerts triggered by patients’ RFID wristbands, patient flow and room turnover insights are delivered to clinical care and logistics support teams to coordinate more effectively for optimized scheduled surgery times, collaborative workflows and faster care delivery.
