AMIA2014 Workflow Paper (Monday) Effect of Obesity and Clinical Factors on Pre-Incision Time: Study of Operating Room Workflow

(Quotes from 2014 AMIA proceedings that interest me due to workflow-related implications: Take me to my Workflow-Related #AMIA2014 Papers and Posters rationale!)

[CW: Interesting use of a workflow map to organize time-related data.]

1:45PM Monday

“As the obese population is increasing rapidly worldwide, there is more interest to study the different aspects of obesity and its impact especially on healthcare outcomes and health related issues. Targeting non-surgical times in the operating room (OR), this study focuses on the effect of obesity along with clinical factors on pre-incision times in OR. Specifically, both the individual and combined effect of clinical factors with obesity on pre-incision times is studied. Results show that with the confidence of 95%, pre-incision time in the OR of obese patients is significantly higher than those for non-obese patients by approximately five percent. Findings also show that more complex cases do not exhibit significant differences between these patient subgroups.”
