The Impact of Overestimations of Surgical Control Times Across Multiple Specialties on Medical Systems


Optimization of operating room (OR) resources and costs require accurate estimations of procedure times. In some institutions, surgeons are asked to predict their surgical control time (SCT), which typically constitutes the majority of the total procedure time. Here, we examine differences in predicted versus actual SCT and variations by specialty. Data… (More)
