Hict applied CaSPr in the reorganisation of the operating theatre of EpiCURA. Based on the future care demand and required capacity, specific recommendations were provided to the hospital with respect to the size and number of operating theatres.
Main Goal: Defining optimal scenarios related to the renovation of operation theatres
Main Result: Detailed analysis with respect to recommended size and amount of operation theatres, given future evolution of care demand
In the context of the renovation and extension of operation theatres, Hict realized two studies related to following request:
Three key methodologies were used to tackle both projects:
CaSPr analyses the future activity of the hospital for conventional and day hospitalization and the operating theatre optimization model translates this future activity into an optimized flow. The contribution of the hospital was essential to gather all the necessary contributions regarding strategic issues.
Through a proven stepped approach, we were able to identify the optimal scenarios.
Step 1 & 2: Data collection, validation & preparation
The following minimal data from the operation theatre were processed & validated:
Step 3: AS IS analysis
After verifying and preparing the input data, we analysed the current situation:
While doing this, we identified potential optimisations, based on following parameters:
Step 4: FUTURE Situation
In the next phase, CaSPr analysed the impact factor on the growth of every activity related to the different operation rooms. These impact factors were estimated on the short-term (2025) and long-term (2035).
Step 5: SCENARIO ANALYSIS
The different possible scenarios were analysed based on the optimal outcome. Through different strategic workshops, a final scenario was selected and detailed out.
