Education for Business Managers of Operating Rooms

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) September 28, 2013

In today’s hospital setting, operating room leaders must be as efficient and patient-driven as possible, while also considering cost components and overall financial management of the operating room. There are many factors that affect the OR, such as resource costs, what surgical procedures are being performed, fixed overhead costs, variable costs, professional fees, and more.

To assist in providing valuable education and training regarding OR business management, OR Manager presents the OR Business Management Conference. It is an intensive, interactive conference for OR business managers and OR managers/directors to increase knowledge of OR processes, to develop critical skills to drive effective business practices for surgical services, and more.

Changes in healthcare laws have made it critical to manage the operating room as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Today’s OR leaders must balance shrinking budgets with complex surgical procedures that require highly competent staff and often expensive equipment. Resource costs, overhead, professional fees, and other costs are among the variables that make optimal business management particularly challenging. The OR Business Management Conference is designed to provide the education and training that will help OR directors and business managers make the best use of their resources. This intensive, interactive conference will focus on the critical skills needed to drive effective business practices for surgical services.

In its third year, the conference has been expanded to include three days of sessions with experts who will help attendees develop analytical/critical thinking skills and gain a better understanding of cost components and financial strategies to streamline the OR. “Our program offers practical tips for a very diverse audience,” says Elizabeth Wood, editor of OR Manager. “Attendees will learn from both expert speakers and their peers during this lively, information-packed event.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to work on projects during group breakout sessions to problem-solve and develop strategic planning skills. Topics to be covered include:

OR charging methodology;
Vendor management;
Management of the revenue cycle;
Data management for decision making;
Operational efficiencies;
Value analysis process;
Role of the business manager.

The 2014 OR Business Management Conference will take place February 11-13, 2014 at the Hyatt French Quarter Hotel in New Orleans. Attendees will also receive contact hours for their attendance. Register by January 22 and save an extra $100 on registration.
