Over the past few years, the rapid growth in ambulatory surgeries has resulted in additional regulatory requirements and a shift in focus toward quality of patient outcomes. Quality standards have been raised for both hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers, with the expectation that those same standards will soon apply to office-based surgical facilities as well. Because it is an integral part of ambulatory care from beginning to end, anesthesia can and should play an important role in overall operational and quality performance.
“Complying with the basic government-regulated quality standards will simply not be enough to differentiate an ASC or OBSF in the highly competitive elective surgery marketplace.”
Quantifying performance results will help your facility increase quality and efficiency, improve patient outcomes, and stand out in today’s marketplace.
