Maximizing operating room (OR) efficiency can help hospitals achieve cost savings, boost team morale, and even increase patient satisfaction. How can we work smarter and improve the patient experience?
As researchers from @mayo Clinic recently discovered, the answers may lie in a data-driven process review.

Implementing such changes eventually helped them reduce OR turnover time to just 20 minutes!
