KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. Launches New Analytics Tool to Improve Operating Room Turnover Efficiency

KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. announced its release of a new solution to enhance OR workflow, efficiency, and collaboration. In the company's newest release of the Essential NEO OR1(R) integrated operating room system, KARL STORZ demonstrates how image acquisition, image management, surgical informatics, and surgical collaboration represent key pillars for delivering integrated surgical care. In addition, the technology release coincides with a program to support Miracle Flights for Kids(R), which helps children requiring specialized medical care receive the treatment they need from doctors and hospitals. In an era when costs are being driven out of the healthcare model, hospitals are focused on efficiency. One critical efficiency metric that is tracked in hospital operating rooms is Turnover Time, which is the window of time needed to clean and prepare the OR between surgeries. Lower Turnover Times result in higher OR utilization and more patients receiving needed care in a timely manner. To help surgical teams reduce Turnover Time, the latest KARL STORZ Essential NEO OR1 system introduces the industry's first visual TurnOver Measurement System. This new analytical feature is designed to promote faster Turnover Times, allow for improved workflow efficiency, support surgical teamwork, and contribute to safe surgical processes.
