Today’s ORs (operating rooms) are the economic engines of most hospitals, accounting for up to 60% of a hospital’s revenue and 35% - 40% of its expenses. Over 60% of a hospital’s margin typically comes from surgical patients. Based on data from DJ Sullivan Healthcare Consulting’s database of more than 700 ORs, each unoccupied OR suite costs a hospital an estimated average of $1,000 per hour (including pre- and post-operation staffing and anesthesiology costs).
This white paper provides additional examples for small and large deployments. It illustrates that an IP-based solution is not only interesting for small deployments, but larger deployment benefit greatly from increased TCO.
