The driving force for increasing efficiency in most endoscopy suites is to accommodate the flood of patients requiring screening colonoscopy. It is likely that in the next 5 to 10 years, another, less invasive screening test, will replace this demand. This article reviews some of the lessons learned from surgeon's and anesthesiologist's efforts to improve operating room (OR) efficiency and suggests ways to apply this information to running the endoscopy suite.
