Well designed visualizations help make your data actionable.
Built specifically for Facility leadership to view a calendar year’s worth of data in a single PDF or Excel file.

Handoff Protocol Used
Percentage of patients, regardless of age, who undergo a procedure under anesthesia who have a documented use of a checklist or protocol for the transfer of care from the responsible anesthesia practitioner to the responsible care team or team member.
The key handoff elements that must be included in the transfer of care protocol or checklist include:
- Identification of patient, key family member(s) or patient surrogate
- Identification of responsible practitioner (primary service)
- Discussion of pertinent medical history
- Discussion of the surgical/procedure course (procedure, reason for surgery, procedure performed)
- Intraoperative anesthetic management and issue/concerns to include things such as airway, hemodynamic, narcotic, sedation level and paralytic management and intravenous fluids/blood products and urine output during the procedure
- Expectations/Plans for the early post-procedure period to include things such as the anticipated course (anticipatory guidance), complications, need for laboratory or ECG and medication administration.
- Opportunity for questions and acknowledgement of understanding of report from the receiving team .
Post Op Pain Control
Percentage of patients with pain score < 7 or “unknown” within 15 minutes of arrival.
Percentage of patients with a temperature of >35.5 degrees centigrade in the immediate postoperative period within 15 minutes of arrival in PACU.
Surgical Safety Checklist Used
Percentage of patients, regardless of age, who undergo a surgical procedure under anesthesia who have documentation that all applicable safety checks from the World Health Organization (WHO) Surgical Safety Checklist (or other surgical checklist that includes the applicable safety checks for the specific procedure) were performed before induction of anesthesia.
The WHO Surgical Safety Checklist includes the following items before Induction of Anesthesia:
- Has the patient confirmed his/her identity, site, procedure and consent?
- Is the site marked?
- Is the anesthesia machine and medication check complete?
- Is the pulse oximeter on the Patient And Functioning?
- Does the Patient have a:
- Known Allergy?
- Difficult Airway/Aspiration Risk?
- Risk of >500 ml Blood Loss (7ml/kg in children)?
Current Medications Documented
Percentage of patients who have had their home medications documented in the EHR.
Total Cases (n)

Surgeon ToT – Flip Flop (min)

Surgeon ToT (min)
Surgery Start (Case 2) – Surgery End (Case 1), in which Case 1 and Case 2 have the same surgeon and same location. This measures the Surgeon’s “Close to Cut” time in the same room.
Wheels Out / Wheels In (min)
Anesthesia Start (Case 2) – PACU/ICU Arrival (Case 1), in which Case 1 and Case 2 have the same location and same surgeon.
Anesthesia ToT (min)
Anesthesia Start (Case 2) – Anes End (Case 1), in which Case 1 and Case 2 have the same Surgeon
Anesthesia Ready Time (min)
Anesthesia Ready (Case 1) – Anesthesia Start (Case 1)
Prime Time Utilization (7a-3p)
Percentage of time the OR is being used across from 7:00a to 3:00p.
Revenue Opportunity Lost ($)
Amount of OR utilization minutes less than goal multiplied by estimated hospital revenue per operating room min.
Morning Time Utilization (0a-7a)
Percentage of time the OR is being used across from 00:00a to 7:00a.
Evening Time Utilization (3p-0a)
Percentage of time the OR is being used across from 3:00p to 00:00a
First Cases (n)
Number of first cases.
First Case On Time Start (%)
Percentage of First Cases started on time.
