Increasing efficiency and improving quality with artificial intelligence in OR planning

by Julia Hendriks on 15. February 2019 No comments

Establishing artificial intelligence (AI) in OR planning makes a significant contribution to making one of the most important areas in hospitals more transparent, plannable and thus more controllable than it is today. Albased “Smart OR-Planning” enables OR management to control OR processes in real time. Automated suggestions for the scheduling of surgical interventions offer a current and binding schedule in which slots for emergencies are already taken into account based on empirical values. The time saved by eliminating manual organization and coordination can be used for strategic activities such as personnel development or research and teaching. Optimized and systemically controlled time and resource planning also has a positive effect on working conditions across occupational groups.

In their article “OP-Management und KI” that was published in the journal KU Gesundheitsmanagement (2/2019), Dr. Sebastian Busse, Svena Skrzipale and René Störmer explain how artificial intelligence can help in hospitals and what has to be considered when introducing AI.
