Somnia’s App for Evaluating Hospital Anesthesia Services Now Available in Apple Store
NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – October 25, 2012— Somnia Anesthesia, a leading national anesthesia practice management company, has announced that its first-of-a kind app for evaluating hospital anesthesia services is now available in the Apple Store. The tool allows hospital executives to examine the productivity and efficacy of their facility’s anesthesia department in four critical areas – leadership, financial management, quality improvement, and clinical services.
Originally released in April as a web-based application, the app enables hospital administrators to rate their current anesthesia service provider in a confidential and comprehensive manner. After answering twenty questions, percentages are computed from a 1 to 5 scale response for each question, ranging from poor to excellent. At the conclusion, a score is provided along with recommended next steps for improvement, if applicable.
“Evaluating and periodically reevaluating ancillary service providers is a top priority for most hospital executives,” says Marc Koch, MD, MBA, CEO and president of Somnia Anesthesia. “Anesthesia is no exception, particularly since it is the beating heart behind well run operating rooms. Even so, taking stock can sometimes be misconstrued or misinterpreted by surgeons, nurses and the anesthesia staff. Not so anymore. Our free and downloadable anesthesia self-assessment app provides anyone a confidential opportunity to complete a reality check from their iPhone, iPad, or iTouch.”
To download the app in the Apple Store, simply search “Somnia App” and begin the evaluation process. To access the web-based application, visit www.somniaevaluation.com.
