Canyon Vista Medical Center is an award-winning healthcare organization located south of Tucson, serving the residents of Sierra Vista, Ft Huachuca and Cochise County. This medical center is a 100-bed, level III trauma center committed to delivering safe, compassionate care to a population of 131,000 in the southwest.
The hospital recently appointed new leadership and as part of the onboarding process, meetings were held with key medical staff. As a result of these meetings, the leadership learned that the operating room could be better managed, a recurring issue voiced from the surgeons. To address this issue, the leadership team recruited Dynafios consulting services on how to engage providers to better align and drive results.
The Dynafios team worked with key stakeholders to address the operating room management issue by implementing a Surgical Services Co-Management agreement. The agreement included specialties of general, bariatrics, urology, vascular and GI surgeons. Based on the complexity of the issues identified and the goals to be achieved, it was agreed the term of the agreement would be two years.
Data related to performance was provided to all physicians including collective and individual results throughout the process to drive both transparency and sustainable results. The results for the year included achievement of 92% of the indicators, distribution of 88% of the bonus and overall improvements in key operational indicators. Key results included:
- Reduction in turnover time by 50%
- 100% improvement in first case on time starts
- $1.3MM savings through the standardization of procedure cards & examination of variation among the surgeons for mesh
