This includes the need to add capacity to handle a backlog of cases, while accommodating the anticipated increase in future patient volumes. Statistical trends strongly suggest that there is an increased likelihood many hospitals in hot spot areas will be forced to redirect elective surgery patients to local ASCs to make room for a major influx in Coronavirus patients. Hospitals also are gearing up to capitalize on this trend. According to a survey conducted by Avanza Healthcare Strategies and HealthLeaders Media, "many hospitals and health systems are looking to build their own ASCs as well as convert Hospital Outpatient Departments (HOPDs) to ASCs." Surveyors found that 76% of larger hospitals reported increasing their investments in ASCs. 1 In this environment, speed and accuracy in the OR planning process are critical components of project success. Traditionally, architectural and equipment planning firms work directly with ASC management, clinicians, and selected equipment suppliers to design and populate the OR space. However, there is growing evidence that budgetary constraints and compressed timelines are driving equipment planners to the sidelines as more and more ASCs rely on alternative value-added resources including Getinge's Planning and Design team. Getinge understands that even a minor misplacement of surgical lights, tables, booms, and ancillary equipment, in association with each other, can have unanticipated long-term workflow and clinical consequences. In this respect, Getinge's exclusive OR3D planning tool helps everyone visualize how the actual installation will look and function. 3D renderings simplify the analysis of the entire OR footprint from wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling. OR3D software reveals spatial relationships among clinicians and actual equipment configurations to enhance workflow, clinical efficacy, and provider comfort. Getinge's consultative and collaborative approach has been constantly refined through the design and planning team's participation in more than 950 OR installations worldwide. 1.
