Ambulatory Centers in Kentucky


As managers of the first ambulatory anesthesia practice to be accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), Somnia has a long history of partnering with ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) of all sizes to achieve measurable results and clinical excellence.
 
We work with ASCs in Kentucky to build case volume, handle logistics, manage revenue and ensure 100% anesthesia coverage. We have guided ASC start-ups and existing surgery centers in your area to record levels while providing safe, secure and improved operating rooms for their patients.
 
Somnia will partner with your ASC to create the ideal team for your facility and ensure 100% anesthesia coverage. We provide you with a dedicated medical director and a team of hand-picked, locally recruited clinicians to best suit your current needs as well as anticipated growth.
 
Our in-house administrative team is available to address all business aspects anesthesia in an ASC. We are not a billing company, locums firm or recruiting agency per se, but our two-decade tenure as a premier anesthesia management company has given rise to internal department whose accomplishments and abilities are second to none. Our internal departments include:  
 
  • Recruitment & Credentialing
  • Scheduling
  • Insurance Contracting
  • Revenue Management
  • Logistics
  • Clinical Quality Excellence
 
 The value of Somnia’s Clinical Quality Excellence (CQE) program is recognized by both inpatient and outpatient facilities. This program measures 31 clinical quality indicators on every patient’s anesthetic experience, providing important information for improving patient care. Our CQE program is also recognized at the national level, as 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).
 
In addition, our local anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists receive both periodic and biannual evaluations—in today’s parlance, Ongoing Provider Performance Evaluation (OPPE) and Focused Provider Performance Evaluation (FPPE). Clinical outcomes are also compared to benchmark data from the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia (SAMBA) and our internal network of facilities and providers. Patient, surgeon and clinician satisfaction surveys are conducted when appropriate.
 
When partnering with Somnia, you will comfortably rise to the challenges of a rapidly evolving healthcare environment while maintaining your high level of care, optimum productivity, high patient and surgeon satisfaction, and maximized revenue streams.
