The Novari Centralized Regional Surgical Wait List Management HUB™ consolidates real time surgical wait list case information from hospitals across a region enabling regional coordination of surgical services. Using wait list management, analytics and interactive mapping, this innovative software supports ministries of health, regional health executives, hospital leadership, surgical service managers, chiefs of surgery, and individual surgeons to manage and coordinate surgical services.
The system consumes real time data from hospitals using the Novari ATC surgical wait list management and eBooking solution as well as the EPIC hospital information system (HISs/EHR) to present users with a consolidated regional view of patients queuing for surgery and other procedures.
The system’s real time wait list can be used to identify long waiting and other patients across the region and enable regional coordination of surgical services (e.g., orthopedics, general surgery, ophthalmology, etc.).
The system uses modern graphical analytics to allow users to visualize regional surgical data for both waiting and completed historical cases. The information can be filtered by date range, hospitals, surgical services (e.g., orthopedics, general surgery, oncology, etc.), diagnosis, procedure, wait time, priority, and cancer, etc.
Knowing which hospitals, surgical services, and surgeons across a health region have the longest and shortest wait times, along with the ability to easily identify groups of waiting patients, allows every decision maker in the region to make informed decisions and coordinate their efforts.
The system’s interactive mapping features display regional surgical wait list information at the region, sub-region (e.g., LHIN), county, city, and hospital levels. Mapping this information allows for an immediate visual comparisons of surgical volumes and wait times by geography, data range, surgical service, etc.
Often, hospital surgical programs operate independently of each other with minimal coordination of resources or wait lists. The system was designed to enable regions to collaborate and coordinate their efforts and resources.
With a real time view of every patient waiting for surgery across a region, wait time variations for any type of procedure across hospital sites and individual surgeons can be easily identified. Once identified, the system can help facilitate the coordination necessary to transfer eligible cases to where capacity is available in an effort to maximize throughput.
