Delivering High Quality Healthcare for Low Cost: Rethinking Supplies in the OR

Empowering stakeholders, both physicians and staff, to understand how their choices impact patient costs often has immediate influence on a change in practice within the operating room. Surgical Pricing Reduction Initiative and New Growth (SPRING) is a project with achieved savings of over $15 million in 2013 and a goal of $25 million in 2014 throughout a 22-facility system. Achieving savings occur by developing the right resources: reports, dashboards, an enhanced doctor preference card update process, and culture change. The elements of SPRING can be successfully implemented in any size facility.
