A Hospital’s Guide to Evaluating
In the typical hospital, the operating room (OR) is the central hub, an area that accounts for approximately 70% of a facility’s revenue and has a profound impact on the quality and clinical standards that dictate today’s outcomes-based business model.
Because anesthesia is a critical component in the OR, it has a key role in defining a facility’s clinical and financial success. This is why hospital executives should regularly conduct an evaluation of their anesthesia services and determine if the current provider is a qualified partner that is fully committed to helping the facility achieve its goals.
This resource document provides hospital administration with a detailed, yet easy-to-understand guide to follow when evaluating the delivery of anesthesia services and identifies the four areas to consider – leadership, financial management, quality improvement, and clinical services.
