There’s no trade-off between your team's well-being and your bottom line

With better data and faster insights, you can reduce OR team fatigue while increasing surgery volume, improving patient experience and financial performance.

Achieve the Quadruple Aim through
Operational Excellence

By creating an OR environment that makes it easier for teams to carry out their work, you can improve their well being and increase throughput, reduce costs, and enhance patient experience. Our data and insights help you maximize operational excellence to impact all aspects of the Quadruple Aim.

Quadruple Aim

What can we do for you?

Improve staff well-being

Reduce fatigue among medical staff by decreasing high-risk poses, standardizing OR processes, and reducing instrument trays and material complexity.

Increase operational efficiency & throughput

Increase surgeries per day with the same OR team by optimizing workflows, implementing best practices, and utilizing best-in-class healthcare technology.

Optimize OR financial performance

Reduce the total cost of surgery by impacting OPEX and CAPEX usage (e.g., reduce instrument trays and increase OR throughput).

Why our method works

Better Data

We generate rich and accurate data by measuring your OR over a period of 2 days. This gives us a detailed and comprehensive representation of your unique OR environment.

Faster Insights

Within four weeks, we report back with actionable insights and improvement opportunities for your local processes, based on measured best practices in hospitals worldwide.

Digital Twin

We configure a digital twin of your OR operations and simulate the impact of potential improvements to build a business case for achieving operational excellence.

Let's get started

We’ll begin by taking an in-depth look at your OR’s unique needs.

After measuring 2 OR days, receive your first insights report in a matter of weeks

We start with our measurement process generating baseline data & insights and configuring your digital twin.

Recurring measurements and reporting to keep your digital twin up to date

If you’re happy with the first report, we will provide you with insights on a regular basis to drive continuous improvement and report back to your teams and management.

How we’re helping hospitals and surgeons reach their goals

Continuous Operational Excellence Insights

We ensure continuous improvement by providing quarterly insight reports that track operational excellence over time.


Scaling to Parallel ORs

We identify surgical teams and case mixes that would benefit from 2 parallel ORs.

Instrument Usage Evaluation

We show actual instrument usage metrics within the OR in a data and insight report.

Achieve 1 Case Extra Per Day

We uncover strategies for increasing caseload through digital twin efficiency simulations.

Fatigue Reduction

We deliver actionable insights for reducing the surgical team’s physical and mental fatigue with a thorough assessment of OR ergonomics.

Case-Mix Optimization

We design an ideal OR case-mix strategy with a data-informed business plan that takes revenue and margins into account.

Process Standardization

We quantify existing process standardization and deviation among surgeons and show which variances make sense and which don’t.

Technology Impact Assessment

We analyze the impact of healthcare technology in the OR and demonstrate how teams can utilize new technologies to ensure optimal operational excellence.

Prof dr Kristoff Corten DEO

Eliminating OR process variables allows us to standardize the procedure. We start by improving ergonomics to reduce the mental and physical impact on the team. Doing so ultimately improves the process outcomes and positively impacts quality of care. DEO has been critical in helping us generate the data to get here.

Dr Christophe Olyslaegers DEO

Thanks to DEO's data insights, we have already implemented several improvement ideas in the OR at GZA. Fine-tuning patient appointments and parallel processing are just two examples that have saved us a lot of time and improved workflows.
