CAVA Robotics helps hospitals and IDNs capture large robotic supply cost savings while building their robotic program’s net margin, efficiency, clinical results, and growth—quickly, correctly, and effectively.

Over the last several years, CAVA leadership has met and worked with hundreds of US hospitals with robotic programs. This has taught us that fewer than 2 in 10 US hospitals have insight into how to run a great da Vinci robotic program—an operational, data analytics, and governance blind spot that can unnecessarily cost a facility 6- to 7-figure annual losses.

CAVA’s team of robotic surgeons, health economists, and change management experts work quickly, transparently, and effectively—using our proprietary online data analytics and training methodologies—to turn around even the most challenged robotic programs, often in as little as 6 months.

And for hospitals and IDNs considering the launch of a new robotics program, CAVA provides support that will ensure your program will be successful from day one…a transformation that translates into millions of dollars of bottom line impact. In fact, CAVA client hospitals routinely achieve or exceed an ROI of 3-5x on our engagements, rapidly creating strong, sustainable programs with outstanding patient outcomes and excellent financial performance.

Phase 1 of all CAVA engagements begins with quantitative and qualitative analytics, and culminates in a detailed diagnostic report with customized educational workshops delivered back to hospital leadership, often within 90 days from launch. Our findings and robotic program recommendations are delivered to senior administration, clinical and robotic leadership, finance, and supply chain, and provide a level of robotic program intelligence virtually unknown—until now.
