Elevate surgical services

Surgical services make up a large share of a health system’s revenue and continue to be critical to strategic service line growth and market differentiation.

Significant market evolution has created an urgent imperative to optimize a new surgical services ecosystem – highlighted by the accelerated shift to ambulatory surgery centers and new opportunities to drive smart growth of complex, specialty procedures in Main ORs.

Leaders are required to drive change beyond foundational process improvements such as first case starts and turnaround times, to refreshing block scheduling policies and renewing surgeon engagement for effective governance.

GE Healthcare Consulting was built on a proven approach to surgical services transformation leveraging advanced analytics and the proprietary “GE Block Optimizer” tool.

Outcomes are driven through an integrated framework comprised of five critical areas.
