Technology has exceedingly become pervasive and beneficial in the healthcare industry; however, challenges concerning the individual sub-verticals keep cropping up every now and then. The surgery industry for its part has its demands from technology to counter the diverse complexities. Traditionally managed by doctors and nurses alone, surgical management has seen an incremental shift toward external staffing. Outsourcing equipment maintenance, cost management, and supply has increased the productivity and profitability of an operating room (OR).
Leaping innovations have resulted in the field of surgery becoming drastically different from what it was 20 years ago. Minimally invasive surgery is one such accomplishment widely hailed as a groundbreaking healthcare milestone. By reducing post-operative pain, recovery time, hospital stay, and other complications, it has redefined surgical care. However, there are many more challenges plaguing the realm of healthcare, which need to be mitigated in due course. An influx of outpatients for procedures is increasing manifold, resulting in understaffing. The high expenses involved in the treatment and side effects caused by open surgeries are some of the other disadvantages faced by healthcare institutions, which needs to be overcome. The need of the hour among most medical organizations today is vendors who can put an end to their surgical woes like space and time mismanagement, minimized OR profitability, delays in starting procedures, and under- or over-staffing, and offer them cost-effective solutions.
A few of the expectations of hospitals from these solution providers are the timely delivery of surgical equipment, dedicated, and non-obtrusive service during treatments, and replenishment of stock. Cost management is expected to help in eliminating avoidable expenditure. Outsourcing services has proven to save time by 35 percent and increase productivity by 40 percent.
