Addressing the Business and the Clinical Sides of Anesthesia
Together, Somnia’s full-portfolio of perioperative anesthesia services and in-house administrative team can address any aspect of your anesthesia management.
Recruitment & Credentialing - We maintain a national database of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists and utilize comprehensive credentialing and provider management software to quickly vet candidates’ current licensure, training, experience and competence.
Scheduling - Our Scheduling Department utilizes a Web-based scheduling tool to manage daily, backup and vacation staffing.
Insurance Contracting - We work with more than 150 payers and have developed innovative pay-for-performance agreements.
Revenue Management - Our advanced revenue management system captures all billable anesthesia revenue. Our billing and collections department proactively explores all applicable revenue streams, optimizing contracting and billing of third-party payers.
Logistics - With Somnia, your facility is always survey-ready. In state-licensed facilities, the certified anesthesia technicians in our in-house Logistics Department provide the oversight necessary to meet anesthesia setup requirements to ensure compliance with state and accreditation guidelines.
Clinical Quality Excellence - Somnia’s Clinical Quality Excellence (CQE) program brings value to inpatient and outpatient facilities. Measuring 31 clinical quality indicators on every patient’s anesthetic experience, it provides important information for improving patient care. The program is also recognized at the national level—Somnia was the first anesthesia-only practice management company to be named a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) by the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ).
Ongoing performance measurement is embedded of our culture. In addition to evaluating our anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists, we benchmark clinical outcomes for our internal network of facilities and providers against data from the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia (SAMBA) against our internal network of facilities and providers. We also conduct patient, surgeon and clinician satisfaction surveys when appropriate.
93% of our patients are “highly satisfied,” 92% of surgeons we work with are “very satisfied,” we deliver the highest quality care with a less than 1% adverse event rate.
