The Business of Effectively Managing Perioperative Services in Today’s Healthcare Environment, 7 am - 3 pm

Effectively balancing the quality and costs of patient care is a priority for all perioperative nurse executives. Although the future of healthcare reform remains uncertain, it’s clear perioperative services must continue to evolve to provide high quality patient care, focused on improving clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, while also addressing economic realities.

You'll be able to network with the speakers, your colleagues, and industry partners to discuss operational issues and best practices. During the Perioperative Executive Clinic, you can talk about your current challenges, creative solutions, and success stories related to process improvements.


  • Discuss the impact of the Affordable Care Act on perioperative services.

  • Identify key operational issues related to effective case scheduling.

  • Evaluate solutions for improvements in case scheduling and coordination.

  • Describe how data is used to identify variations between procedures and products.

  • Appraise process improvement success stories in standardization of procedures and products.
