From my experiences, a problematic system I’ve encountered is the operation room management. In my hospital, there are considerable challenges in efficiently coordinating surgical cases. For instance, in emergency situations like acute appendicitis, if you’re the surgeon, you need to contact the available operating room, summon a scrub nurse for assistance, reach out to an anesthesiologist for anesthesia control, and coordinate with the ward for post-surgery bed availability. This collaborative process involves significant time and effort from a multidisciplinary team.
In my view, this cumbersome procedure could potentially be replaced by an Information System that centralizes these tasks with a single click, enabling seamless communication with all relevant personnel simultaneously.
