Intelligent surgery & the use of data to drive alignment throughout Banner Health's robotics service line
Currently facing health care organizations are the challenges of reducing the total cost to treat patients. Through data, executives may be able to demonstrate that a well-coordinated robotics service line has the potential to reduce clinical, financial, and operational variation.
This webinar will help you identify the practical metrics needed to evaluate surgical performance within your own hospitals. We will share insights in using data correctly to potentially drive positive clinical and economic outcomes. In addition, we will provide the tools to support you in the identification of best practices, standardization in the operating room, and enable you to discover areas of optimization for your robotics program.

Generating data alone does not bring clarity. A healthcare organization's ability to sustain high-value care delivery and ensure its long-term strategic financial viability increasingly depends on how effectively it can apply data analytics to inform improvement efforts related to quality, cost, and patient experience.
At the most basic level, the purpose of analytics is to get the right information to the right people to help them make the right decisions. During this webinar, we will review a framework and share examples of how hospitals and health system can progress from identifying strategic opportunities to executing solutions that achieve each opportunity's full potential and deliver the expected return on analytics.
