APPLICATION OF THE OPERATING ROOM EFFECTIVENESS INDICATOR (ORE) IN A BRAZILIAN HOSPITAL


ÁREA: 12. Heathcare Operations Management

RESUMO:
Operating rooms are important operations for any hospital, being great cost and revenue generators. In this sense, the focus on efficiency is necessary and, in this context, the ORE indicator is raised as an opportunity for studies of efficiency in surgical effluxes. This study applied the ORE indicator in a large Brazilian hospital for one year according to data from the hospital's information system and thus obtained a result of 60.4% average efficiency. In addition to the indicator calculation, improvements were implemented with a focus on scheduling, setup, cancellations, physical organization and material management. According to the comparative with other applications, it is inferred that the efficiency of operating rooms in Brazilian hospitals is between 50% and 60%, with great opportunities to leverage surgical productivity.

PALAVRAS-CHAVE:
lean healthcare, operating room, indicator, hospitals, operations management.
