Somnia Anesthesia Redefines Value in Anesthesia Management

New White Paper Describes Anesthesia's Impact on All Aspects of Perioperative Performance

NEW ROCHELLE, NY--(Marketwired - November 23, 2015) - Somnia Anesthesia, a national anesthesia practice management company, has just published a white paper on how anesthesia teams can help hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers elevate perioperative performance. This new white paper is a valuable resource for hospitals and surgery centers as it identifies clinical, operational, and financial performance as the three pillars supporting a solid healthcare structure.

Healthcare professionals have been reluctant to question clinical performance due to the complexity of the anesthesia specialty and the significant impact of its performance on a wide range of hospital operations. In its new paper, Somnia describes how an anesthesia management partner can add value to a hospital's bottom line in a way that addresses cost effectiveness alongside clinical quality and operational efficiency. The paper reveals the strategies to accurately measuring, tracking, and improving on clinical, operational, and financial performance in anesthesia.

The paper also explains how clinical quality performance aspects of anesthesia should undergo constant assessment and measurement in order to track progress and implement improvements. Somnia states that the best anesthesia management companies understand the implications of clinical, operational, and financial objectives and use this information to constantly innovate. On average, hospitals spend 25 percent of each dollar on administrative services. In comparison, high-performing anesthesia management groups spend only about 10 percent of each dollar on administration, while delivering added value in the form of higher efficiency, quality improvement programs, and continuing clinical education. Hospitals and outpatient facilities have the opportunity to transform the value of their anesthesia dollar through a shared commitment to perioperative performance with their anesthesia teams.
