If someone were to tell you that all of the activity involved in instrument reprocessing, preparation for a case, case setup and case breakdown was driven by a large percentage of waste, what would you say? More importantly, what would you do about it? Leveraging data in healthcare is one of the most efficient ways to perpetuate improvement and change. In this highly-anticipated episode we talk to Bryan Stuart and Jay Schrader about the actual numbers that help uncover the invisible surgical crisis that exists in today's hospitals. What exactly does instrument waste look like in terms of cost and how can you use data and numbers to build a case for critical department upgrades to administration? Tune in now to find out!

Season 6 CEs will be packaged at the end of the season in a single mega-quiz that includes all six episodes. The quiz will be released through our newsletter and social media pages along with episode 8 later this season.
