The financial pressure on health systems nationwide has never been greater, and many hospital leaders are focused upon cutting costs to increase profit margins. However, those with a longer vision recognize more impactful results arise from a dual focus on spending less and generating more revenue.
As the single largest contributor to hospitals’ revenue, operating rooms significantly impact the bottom line when effectively or ineffectively utilized. Of course, this begs the question, how do you make the OR more efficient? While multiple factors impact efficiency, studies consistently highlight the importance of a well-run anesthesia program.
From minimizing cancelations with pre-anesthesia testing, to hiring anesthesia providers who ensure on-time starts and quick turnarounds, anesthesia service is integral to an efficacious, safe, and efficient OR. For this reason, selecting an innovative and proactive anesthesia partner, aligned with your goals, has never been more important.
With Premier Anesthesia as your partner, you can expect these 7 major benefits:
Better Solutions – A proactive anesthesia partner listens to you and actively seeks to understand the problems you face. You not only have a partner to manage anesthesia services, but you also gain a problem-solving partner who will present custom solutions for the specific issues impacting your OR.
Increased Revenue Potential – A well-organized anesthesia partner minimizes cancelations with pre-anesthesia testing and ensures on-time starts, aiding with quick turnarounds between cases. All this works to improve surgical throughput, increasing revenue potential.
Greater Control – A well-aligned partner respects your need to flex up (or down) to manage volume and will make changes without pushing back or compromising safety, efficiency, and viability.
More Focus – A focused partner will build an extensive network of PRNs that can serve as a beneficial resource to you. With no internal disputes or negotiations about coverage needs, you have more time to focus upon the quality, safety, and profitability of your OR.
