Director of Business Development
Anesthesia plays a key role in every hospital's operations
including operating room efficiency (on-time starts, recovery time,
etc.), patient safety and clinical outcomes and patient, surgeon
and surgical staff satisfaction. Ironically, hospital anesthesia
departments can sometimes feel and act like outsiders despite their
deep integration with the hospital.
Premier Anesthesia has conducted over 150 evaluations of
hospitals and found that there are three consistent issues that
plague hospitals across the country.
1. Cost Issues
The biggest contributors to anesthesia-related costs are below
optimimum levels of OR room utilization and clinical productivity.
OR utilization is a measure of use of an operating room that is
appropriately staffed with personnel to successfully deliver a
surgical procedure to a patient.
Factors affecting utilization rates include:
- accuracy of estimated case time
- cancellation rate
- number of add-on cases available to fill gaps
Improvements in OR efficiency can have a major impact on
hospital staff, finances and OR management. Watch
the video of how increased productivity and efficiency
resulted in substantial savings for a client hospital.
2. Leadership Issues
Lack of anesthesia leadership causes ripple effects throughout
the OR. The role of anesthesia within a hospital touches other
departments; accounting, business management, technology, and plays
a critical role in a hospital's long-term success. Click here to learn how Premier
Anesthesia creates strong medical leadership and alignment.
3. Service Issues
Oftentimes, the anesthesia service may not be aligned with the
broader goals of the facility. Click here to learn how
Premier Anesthesia creates alignment between the anesthesia team
and your hospital/health system's strategy.
4. Crisis Management
Financial issues, leadership challenges and customer
service needs can weaken anesthesia departments over time. If left
unchecked, crises may occur. Premier Anesthesia has solutions and
resources to address impending anesthesia department crises,
including provision of immediate staffing and management. For more
