When humans matter –Scaling operating room capacity for better tomorrow


There are around 0,5 million operating rooms globally. Surgeons make roughly 500 million surgical operations every year and yet the global utilisation of operating rooms is only around 40%. This inefficiency creates costs, increases surgery queues and builds up inequality while at the same time the expensive operating rooms are just waiting there to be used.

Enabling more efficient operating room usage

O-Room is a platform that brings together public hospitals and private healtcare sector to enable more efficient operating room usage. It lowers operational costs and offers additional compensation for all the stakeholders.

O-Room´s main function is to enable operating room renting. It connects the different stakeholders and makes sure that all the professionals taking part in the surgeries have adequate education and professional proficiency. In addition, it collects data for the hospitals how to improve their processes. O-Room does not handle patient data nor does it treat patients. It is fully GDPR compatible.

Benefitting various stakeholders

With the help of O-Room, hospitals can generate additional income up to 1,2 million euros per year when taking the unused operating room capacity in use.This includes improved processes, decreased personnel costs, additional revenues as well as decreased equipment costs.

Insurance companies
With the help of O-Room, insurance companies can save up to 30% when compared to traditional way of compensating surgery expenses.

Healthcare service providers
