Changing anesthesia groups can not only be daunting, but near impossible without the necessary resources, personnel, and a true understanding of your facility. Many healthcare facilities are often blind to the realities of the pitfalls of their current anesthesia management service provider and fall into the trap of inaction. However, the competitive and dynamic nature of healthcare today has led hospitals to focus their energies on performance evaluation and the implementation of change.
Hospitals considering managerial change must first and foremost conduct an honest assessment of its current state of affairs. Since these types of changes require extensive resources, not to mention time and energy, it is imperative that facilities recognize where they are lacking value and how they can gain back this value. This involves assessment of both cost and service oriented measurements to gain a better picture of the hospital’s operational efficiency.
When exploring anesthesia alternatives, the request for proposal (RFP) strategy is one of the most effective ways to identify needs, find solutions, and implement change. Somnia Anesthesia has taken this evaluation one step further in its most recent white paper, How to Optimize the Anesthesia RFP Process and Achieve the Best Result. This paper contains an in-depth analysis of the RFP process, its benefits, and its results. Somnia has highlighted important methods of managing the RFP process and has expanded on the details of how this process is carried out.
