Utilizing a QI Time Series Study to Inform QI Initiatives for Improving Inpatient Endoscopy Workflow

Inpatient endoscopy workflow is complex due to the need for multidisciplinary care coordination and on-demand scheduling. At our facility, weekday inpatient procedures are performed in dedicated operating rooms (ORs) with anesthesia support, with staff resource changes after 17:00. Delays result in unpredictable schedules and extended work days, negatively impacting patient care and both patient and provider dissatisfaction. This initiative sought to find targetable opportunities to streamline endoscopy workflow and minimize time between cases by utilizing a time-series study, with the goal to decrease days with cases extending beyond 17:00.
