What does a manager need to think about when scheduling cases requiring anesthesia outside the operating room (OOOR)? This chapter aims to answer that question by discussing some key strategic points that can facilitate a more efficient workday. The concepts of block scheduling and utilization apply in the OOOR setting as they do in the operating room, but there are added challenges given the increased physical distance to the main operating room suite. These challenges will be identified and recommendations will be provided on how to evaluate and improve OOOR efficiency. With more procedures being done OOOR, it is important for anesthesia groups to be mindful of these challenges and position themselves appropriately.
