SPD Staffing and Productivity Assessment

Working with Lean processing engineers, IMS developed a proprietary assessment based on OR case history, case mix, equipment capacity, and tray processing volume. This assessment helps facilities:
  • Accurately benchmark SPD productivity
  • Develop and validate proper SPD staffing levels
For a one-time fee, IMS provides a detailed report showing:
  • Routine processing demand at facility
  • Comparison of current productivity metrics to industry standards
  • Proposed schedule to optimize staffing by day of week and hour of day

In facilities throughout the country, this assessment has enabled managers to accurately set budgets and establish appropriate staffing levels.
