Monitoring and managing a da Vinci surgery program to optimize quality and revenue requires a vastly different level of data analytics, robotic surgery insights, operational know-how, and management expertise—all virtually unknown to most hospitals.
CAVA Robotics, the leader in robotic program optimization for hospitals and IDNs, delivers a proprietary, unprecedented diagnostic and prescriptive robotic change management model for both hospital administration and their surgeons. CAVA rapidly helps our client hospitals capture large robotic supply cost savings, and then shows them how to build their robotic program’s net margin and market growth—quickly, correctly, and effectively.
CAVA’s robotic programs have been demonstrated in hospitals nationally to generate an ROI of 5-15x and more, enabling a facility to achieve long-term robotic program sustainability and risk mitigation while optimizing patient outcomes.
With the deepest body of robotic cost and clinical analytics, change management, and surgical insight ever developed,
CAVA will help your hospital rapidly and dramatically.
The widespread market adoption of the acclaimed da Vinci robot—despite its significant acquisition and maintenance costs and considerable program management challenges—continues to create unprecedented economic, clinical, and strategic opportunities and issues for US hospitals and IDNs. The truth is, robotic programs are very difficult to monitor and manage, with the level of data analytics and know-how required to run these programs in a sustainable, long-term manner virtually unknown to most hospitals.
CAVA Robotics Change Management and Surgeon Leadership
As the leader in robotic comparative cost-effectiveness analytics and change management, CAVA has the deepest body of robotic data, analytic tools, and supporting change management insight ever developed. CAVA’s proprietary change management program addresses 18 dimensions of robotic program improvement, customized to the specific needs of each of our clients, and supported by our proprietary robotic Maturity Model.™ Analytics are the critical front-end diagnostic component to robotic program success; CAVA Robotics’ change management, driven by our renowned robotic surgeon leadership, provides step-by step, customized, peer-to-peer support to our hospital and IDN clients, helping to apply what they learn from the analytics, moving their robotic program to a model of clinical excellence, efficiency, economic sustainability, satisfying ROI, safety, and optimal outcomes.
CAVA Robotics’ analytics addresses robotic categories including benign hysterectomy; radical prostatectomy; endometrial cancer; general surgery applications (including single site laparoscopic cholecystectomy); cardiothoracic, ENT, anterior resection, and other emerging robotics procedures.
World-Class Robotic Surgeon Leadership & CAVA Robotics Training Centers
Lead by CAVA Robotics’ CEO Josh Feldstein, an applied health economist, together with robotic Medical Directors Rick Low, MD, and Herb Coussons, MD—and supported by a team of highly experienced robotic surgeons, academic leadership, statistician-econometricians, and IT experts—CAVA Robotics addresses both the economic and operational sides of the robotic business. On a peer-to-peer basis, we provide robotic surgeons and administrators with the insight, knowledge and training to revolutionize their facility’s approach to the tactical deployment of robotic surgery.
HIPAA- and Cyber Security-Compliant Data Extraction
CAVA Robotics’ HIPAA- and cyber security-compliant data extraction and management team quickly works with our clients to capture their comparative robotic vs. lap vs. open surgical data across approximately 60 clinical and fiscal endpoints. These data include Item Master and Charge Master extractions, EMRs, financial / cost accounting systems, non-integrated repository data, and more. Patient chart reviews may also be coordinated on-site by our HIPAA-compliant nursing team. Support services can range from general guidance to advanced onsite data collection, dependent upon provider needs.
Through our customized online robotic analytics platform outputs, our clients determine a wealth of critical business intelligence to help their facility:
- Perform diagnostic (retrospective) and prescriptive (predictive) analyses on your existing or contemplated robotic programs at the system-wide, facility, and surgeon level
- Identify and quantify unknown costs, program inefficiencies, and performance problems
- Help you design a truly successful, sustainable, cost-effective robotic enterprise
- Address the appropriate usage of robotics within your surgical portfolio
- Determine viable robotic technology acquisition strategies
Clinical Robotics Assessment Categories Include
- Benign hysterectomy
- Radical prostatectomy
- General surgery (i.e., single site chole, inguinal and incisional hernia repairs, Nissen, lysis of adhesion)
- ENT procedures
- Endometrial cancer
- Numerous emerging robotics procedures
- Anterior and right colon resection
Featuring on-site training and education at our clients’ hospitals—together with the option of two-day in-depth training at one of our two world-class robotic training centers—learn things known by only the very top robotic programs, and see the impact immediately…fiscally and procedurally.

CAVA Robotics CCE data and predictive modeling methodology
CAVA’s proprietary, predictive online comparative cost-effectiveness robotic models and change management programs are designed based on clinical and economic evidence obtained from more than 10,000 robotic surgeries and 1,500 patient chart reviews across dozens of US hospitals over the past 3 years, together with in-depth interviews from hundreds of robotic surgeons and hospital leaders. Our system’s benchmarking capabilities are enhanced with data from new hospitals and IDNs on an ongoing basis, creating an every-expanding data set of unparalleled comparative robotic surgery outcomes.
CAVA Robotics streamlined Two-Phase / 6-Step engagement process enables our hospital and IDN clients to move through their diagnostic assessment and on to program improvement in as little as 16 weeks.
CAVA Robotics often means the difference between a successful Robotic program and a financial black hole
Simply put, the comparative robotic cost-effectiveness information gap stands as a critical miss for hospitals with a robotic program, as well as for any hospital considering the purchase of a new da Vinci system and the ramp-up of a program.
Robotic comparative cost-effectiveness information represents the difference between a program capable of economic success, and one destined to lose money year after year, even in the face of growing annual surgical volumes.
Most Hospital Robotic Programs Cost a Facility Millions With Little Hope of Fiscal Sustainability…
But It Does Not Have To Be This Way!
