Bending the Healthcare Cost Curve Toward Improved Anesthesia Value

Hugh Morgan of Somnia Outlines Steps for Maximizing the Cost-Effectiveness of Anesthesia Services

NEW ROCHELLE, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - Somnia Anesthesia, a national anesthesia practice management company, has collaborated on a recent peer-reviewed article in the November issue of HFM Magazine.

The article discusses the broad impact of anesthesia on cost and quality of care and gives hospital leaders insight into the primary factors they should consider when analyzing the ROI of their anesthesia spend.

In the article, Hugh Morgan, Somnia Anesthesia's Vice President of Quality Assurance, states that, "Because anesthesia influences so many care areas throughout a hospital, hospital leaders should look to anesthesia to provide cost-effective, patient-centric, and quality-driven services in these areas."

"For hospitals, bending the anesthesia cost curve requires a transparent, accountable anesthesia partner. Because perioperative services and the OR continue to be primary treatment and financial hubs in most hospitals, the anesthesia group should be accountable for leading efficiency and productivity efforts in these areas. A high-performing anesthesia practice will use data to validate and quantify its financial, operational, and clinical quality service delivery."

You can read the entire article, "How Hospital Leaders Can Bend the Anesthesia Cost Curve," on the HFMA website, or read Somnia's white paper, "Bending the Healthcare Cost Curve Toward Improved Anesthesia Value," on the Somnia website.
