Anyone in the healthcare industry understands that things can get a little hectic at times in operating rooms. Which is why any help in organizing the OR and training staff members not only make things easier but can even be a lifesaver in critical situations.
This is exactly what DinamicOR had in mind when developing its revolutionary Back Table Solution, which not only keeps virtually all instruments and tools plainly visible and quickly retrievable but also includes the DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App that can be used to train new personnel, and make onboarding a uniform, repeatable process.
It can make a world of difference when all new staff members are indoctrinated right at the outset in OR procedures and practices. By using this App, incoming staff members can learn about proper procedures before they ever take their first shift in the OR.
How the DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App can help
The DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App can be used to map your hospital’s preferred instrument layout for all procedures and have them repeated in all operating rooms throughout the facility. This will ensure that all tools and surgical instruments are always exactly where they’re supposed to be, so they can be found and retrieved as quickly as possible. When every second counts in an operation, this can be critical to a successful outcome.
New staff members especially can benefit by consulting the App and using it as a reference to review surgical procedures and step-by-step operations. Once you’ve established your own specific workflows, these can be consulted by all staff members so that this common knowledge can be learned and remembered by all staffers. Any notes or drawings which might assist with operations can be included in the Workflow, so these too can be reviewed and understood.
Instrument layouts can be set up in the App so that these layouts are repeatable and accurate in all operating rooms. That kind of consistency can help everyone be more efficient during critical operations so that more successful outcomes are achievable. The DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App can thus become an ongoing database for reference which doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel can all use for the sake of uniformity and precision during operations.
While staff members might be familiar with the most common procedures in an Operating Room, there are always some less common and perhaps relatively rare operations that call for different procedures. The DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App can be used to document these less frequently used procedures, so that they can be performed with the same ease as more common procedures.
Staffers can consult the App database to review the appropriate procedure and be well prepared to participate in the actual event when it happens. Having this kind of consistency in your procedures and having a better trained and informed group of medical personnel, can help make your Operating Room procedures much more repeatable and smoother during execution.
