Despite significant investments in sophisticated technologies and state-of-the-art operating room environments, surgical care team coordination issues still plague hospitals, until now.
As health systems look to recover from the myriad of challenges the global pandemic threw at them, many leaders are turning their attention to one of their largest sources of revenue – surgical services.

COVID-19 brought virtually all elective surgeries to a halt in 2020 and reduced volume in 2021, created staffing challenges, and a backlog of surgeries that caused lost delayed or lost revenue. To better understand the current state of operating room performance and help surgical service centers better prepare for 2022, RelayOne commissioned an independent study of 100 health system leaders.
