Surgery and anesthesia

This team is made up of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nursing and allied health professionals, unit clerks, and technical professionals from across VCH, PHSA and PHC.

They are defining the perioperative workflow, including surgical bookings, pre-operative consultation, surgery and post-anesthetic care. This includes waitlist management and tracking, case scheduling, pre-operative assessments, emergency cases, patient transfers, intra-operative documentation and orders as well as inventory management. This will create efficiencies by improving communication and ensuring the relevant steps are taken to improve patient flow.
