Improve coordination with real-time progression updates
Torin improves the way coordinators and staff collaborate both in and across departments. From inside the OR, staff share surgery progress updates in real-time, providing the OR manager with overviews across all rooms. Progress information can also be shared across departments, allowing others to organize their workflow accordingly. All staff have access to the same updated information, which reduces need for phone coordination and minimizes disruptions.
Capture data for a safer patient experience
Torin captures and timestamps all steps in the surgical patient journey, ensuring complete documentation of the patient care pathway. This includes surgery information and notes, and a record of the instruments and implants used during the surgical procedure. Diagnostic and procedural codes can be integrated into the system to support a standardized and safe environment.
Ensure a calm care environment for patients
Implementing standardized checklists in the surgical workflow promotes patient safety, without adding complexity for the staff. And with accurate and updated information available, Torin supports communication to patients and their relatives. Patients experience the reassurance of a well-organized, calm hospital with surgeries that run according to schedule.
Torin comes with an intuitive and user-friendly interface for day-to-day and long-term scheduling. The solution offers customizable booking templates for fast and smooth surgery planning and allows OR managers to reserve operating rooms, equipment and instruments needed for a specific surgery and assign the preferred staff for the day.
In case of delays, emergencies and other deviations, Torin enables OR managers to quickly postpone or prolong a surgery, automatically shifting all subsequent appointments to a later start time. The solution automatically checks for potential conflicts to avoid incoherencies and gaps, ensuring a more cost-effective and structured surgery plan.
Torin generates comprehensive surgery documentation based on system updates through registration of each step in the surgical patient journey. This entails a full log of e.g. incision and suture times, implants and instruments used, and assigned staff. Torin also supports customizable checklists to ensure that all pre-, peri- and post-operative procedures are carried out in due time. All are time-stamped and added to the surgical record for later review, providing an accurate cost calculation for financial support.
In addition, the solution supports integration of diagnostic and procedural codes to support a standardized and safe environment.
Torin provides OR managers and surgical staff with visual, color-coded overviews of the short-term surgical plan for fast identification of ongoing and future procedures in each operating room. As the surgeries progress, status changes from inside the operating room are shared in real-time across all relevant screens, allowing the OR manager to adjust subsequent surgeries accordingly.
Torin provides hospital managers with a unique analytics tool for monitoring and documenting predefined targets for further processing and analysis. The analytics part of the solution provides a high degree of decision support through capacity forecasts and business intelligence. The graphs revealing potential planning gaps, inefficiencies and thus improvement areas to be considered in the future.
Key performance indicators can be defined and displayed on screens in the department or visualized in reports. Set up to depict the daily, weekly, monthly or yearly performance and flow in and across departments. Data stems from the continuous use of Torin, as every registration reveals how the surgical flow is managed.
