North Shore-LIJ Extends Use of 3rd Party Remote Video Auditing into ORs
Date:5/21/2013

FOREST HILLS, N.Y., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The North Shore-LIJ Health System is expanding a first-of-its-kind video monitoring system used to measure hand-washing compliance at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY, by introducing cameras in operating rooms at Forest Hills (NY) Hospital.

The new pilot program strengthens patient safety by providing hospitals with real-time feedback in their operating rooms (ORs), the first time in the US that remote video auditing (RVA) has been used in a surgical setting. RVA ensures that surgical teams take a "timeout" before they begin a procedure to prevent wrong-site surgeries. The cameras also are being used to alert hospital cleaning crew when a surgery is nearing completion and the pre-operation area when a room is ready for the next case, which helps reduce the time it takes to prepare the OR for the next surgery. To reduce the risk of infections, the monitoring system also confirms whether ORs have been cleaned thoroughly and properly, both in between cases and overnight.

The program was designed and implemented by North Shore-LIJ's anesthesiology provider, North American Partners (NAPA), in partnership with Mount Kisco, NY-based Arrowsight, Inc., a developer and third-party provider of RVA services and software.

The program was initiated in March 2013 in eight ORs at North Shore-LIJ's Forest Hills Hospital. "The initial focus at Forest Hills has been on monitoring for surgical timeout compliance, and within just one week of receiving real-time performance feedback, our operating room teams achieved nearly perfect scores," said Rita Merceica, RN, the hospital's executive director.

Given the success of the program
