When possible, redundancies and checks should be integrated. Proper time stamp ordering would have greatly reduced data cleaning time in our study. The availability of accurate time stamps for each action on a patient is crucial for any type of operations based analyses. Common time stamps include transfer and discharge times as described above as well as the beginning and end times of key activities such as operating room and PACU occupancy. These time stamps would allow for the calculation of process times for major steps within the process.

To achieve these objectives, we will describe an OR study we carried out in collaboration with the Vancouver Island Health Authority’s Surgical Services Department that illustrates the process and subsequent challenges of data processing. While we will be providing some background and context, the intent of this paper is not to recount the study. For more details please see, Chow et al [3]. We will then discuss challenges in extracting and processing data and provide general recommendations aimed at improving HISs for OR related studies.
