Are you prepared to respond to additional anesthesia costs?
More hospitals are struggling with the rising costs of anesthesia services and the subsidies required to fund the service.
Does your anesthesia provider group have solutions in place to remediate cost challenges or will the additional costs be passed through to the hospital?
Here's three ways your anesthesia group can help to thwart unnecessary inflation and additional costs.
One of the most common unnecessary costs that we find is over staffing. One of the ways we have built cost-effective staffing models is by placing providers where their skills are most useful and needed, based on acuity. Staffing trends are ever-evolving, so they must be monitored and changed on a regular basis.
Build an Annual Anesthesia Business Plan
Create alignment with your anesthesia provider group by collaborating to draft an Anesthesia Business Plan that clearly defines how the anesthesia service will compliment the hospital's current goals. Make sure that what they have in mind for your hospital lines up with your goals and priorities. Meet regularly to review the progress of that business plan.
Choose a Partner that is Willing to be Flexible
One of the biggest pain points for unsatisfied hospitals is being partnered with an anesthesia provider group that is inflexible to the evolving needs of the hospital. With so many choices, ensure that you are with an anesthesia provider group that has the resources and culture to grow with your organization, but can also be flexible and scale to your needs if volume is down or fluctuating.
To overcome cost challenges, ensure that your anesthesia group is an adaptable, informed and strategic partner to the hospital.
