Somnia Anesthesia Completes Patient Satisfaction Study

Results from Five-Year Retrospective Analysis of Anesthesia-Specific Surveys Released

NEW ROCHELLE, NY August 23, 2016 – Somnia Anesthesia (Somnia, Inc.) recently released the findings of a five-year retrospective analysis of 30,000 anesthesia-specific patient satisfaction surveys. The proprietary surveys, approved by CMS HCAHPS administrators and conducted during the September 2010 and December 2015 time period, targeted 18,312 surgical and 11,840 obstetrical patients.

“We were informed and a little surprised by our findings,” said Robert C. Goldstein, MD, executive VP and chief medical officer at Somnia Anesthesia. “The study revealed interesting correlations between patient survey results and the delivery of anesthesia care.”

One of the questions the surveys set out to answer was what constitutes patient satisfaction. With patient feedback key to improving the quality and safety of clinical care and enhancing the patient experience, hospitals are turning to anesthesia practice management companies, like Somnia Inc., that are data driven.

As consumers in every vertical shape more and more of the products and services in the marketplace, patients, once presumed loyal, have become a less loyal, more vocal and cost-driven population. At the same time, as healthcare organizations use more big data to modernize care delivery, specialty specific surveys like these will grow even more important.
