09 september 2020

Hict applied CaSPr in the reorganisation of the operating theater for a large hospital group in Wallonia. Based on the future care demand and required capacity, specific recommendations were provided to the hospital with respect to the size and amount of operating theaters.

Project Highlights

  • Customer: Large hospital group in Wallonia
  • Main Goal: Optimising operating theater
  • Main Result: Detailed analysis with respect to recommended size and amount of operation theaters, given future evolution of care demand

Three key elements were used to tackle this project:

  1. CaSPr
  2. Operation room optimalisation model
  3. Strategic contribution of the hospital

The contribution of the hospital was essential to gather all the necessary contributions regarding strategic issues.

CaSPr analyses the future activity of the hospital for conventional and day hospitalization and the operating theater optimization model translates this future activity into an optimized flow.


  • Detailed forecast care demand on individual hospital level and translation to operation theaters
  • Optimisation of current operation theater
  • Specific recommendations with respect to size and amount of operation theaters
