Equipment, Specialty Supplies & Implants Storage Planning: Initiate space and storage utilization study to evaluate flow and storage of equiment and supplies in the perioperative environment. The detail design phase of a project provides the best opportunity to evaluate use of space, workflow standardization, time efficiency, and process improvement. Departmental core services currently operating independently will gain efficiencies by optimizing like processes and consolidating resources including staff and space.
We use a tiered system for line item analysis. The analysis tool we develop provides data and rationale for space utilization and identifies potential gaps by location and proximity. Our team will provide support to define strategic, operational, functional and space planning for Equipment, Supplies and Implants.
- Provide assessment of equipment and supplies to determine use of space, workflow impact and gap in space vs equipment/supply needs
- Develop data-driven recommendations for IV platform equipment and supply storage
- Develop recommendations for centralized storage of point of care supplies, supply carts, and implants
- Identify opportunities for common area spaces shared between patient care areas to promote quick access
