2022 Stronger - PH346 - Optimizing SPD: Error Capture and Data Driven Decision Making - On Demand
The sterile processing department (SPD) at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center developed and implemented an application that provided real-time feedback between the SPD and the operating room (O.R.). This application allowed for end-to-end data analysis and creation of an operational health dashboard — fostering collaboration between the SPD and O.R. by increasing communication and creating a centralized data repository. The SPD worked with the enterprise’s data analytics and process improvement teams to deploy the application by using Structured Query Language databases and leveraging process improvement’s change leadership methodology.
