North American Partners in Anesthesia's Michael Simon to Be Featured Speaker at 2013 Becker's Hospital Review 4th Annual Meeting

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - May 06, 2013) - North American Partners in Anesthesia announced today that regional director, Michael Simon, M.D., will be a featured speaker at the 2013 Becker's Hospital Review 4th Annual Meeting to be held May 9-11, 2013 at the Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. NAPA will also support the event as an exhibitor at booth #34.

Dr. Simon will be presenting on the topic "Anesthesia and Perioperative Alignment in the Age of Health Care Reform." Dr. Simon will discuss anesthesia's impact on a hospital's revenue, cost, and market perception given Medicare reimbursement policies, quality reporting requirements, and incentive programs authorized through the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act. In addition, his presentation will cover the metrics that anesthesia groups should monitor to improve results and demonstrate value.

"Health care reform has prompted hospitals throughout the country to seek a roadmap to transform their number one expense -- the operating room," said Dr. Simon. "By focusing on accountable care, the patient experience and how quality, outcomes and costs are driving hospital performance, hospital leadership can build a solid perioperative foundation to deliver improved OR metrics, increase patient and surgeon satisfaction and better outcomes."

The 2013 Becker's Hospital Review 4th Annual Meeting brings together hospital business and strategy leaders to discuss how to improve your hospital and its bottom line in these challenging but opportunity-filled times. The best minds in the hospital field will discuss opportunities for hospitals plus provide practical and immediately useful guidance on ACOs, physician-hospital integration, improving profitability and key specialties.
