Abstract

An Operating Room Management Information System developed at the Johns Hopkins medical institutions is described. The system has two major components: an operating room scheduling component and an operating room utilization analysis component. In addition to the system description, the goals of the automated system with respect to management philosophy of the operating rooms are summarized. In order to demonstrate how the utilization analysis component of the system facilitates resolution of utilization perplexities, an example of an operating room utilization management application is presented.
