Somnia Anesthesia, a leading national anesthesia practice management company, has announced the release of a web-based application that allows hospital executives a mobile tool for evaluating their facility’s anesthesia services in four critical areas — leadership, financial management, quality improvement, and clinical services.
The app is the first of its kind for the anesthesia services industry, offering hospital administrators a comprehensive yet simple tool that grades the productivity and efficacy of their current anesthesia service provider based on a series of twenty questions in the four areas. Percentages are computed from a 1-5 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.
“The importance of anesthesia services evaluation cannot be understated; anesthesia is the heart of the OR and the OR is the heart of the hospital. Without an efficient, high-quality anesthesia service provider, a hospital’s clinical and financial standing suffers,” says Marc Koch, MD, MBA, CEO and president of Somnia Anesthesia. “The application gives hospital decision-makers a quick tool to utilize to measure the effectiveness of their anesthesia department. We’re delighted to offer this service to the hospital management and believe that many will find the application highly useful and helpful as they seek to remain competitive in the evolving healthcare environment.”
To evaluate your current anesthesia department, access www.somniaevaluation.com using your mobile device to begin the process. For additional resources on anesthesia services evaluation go to www.somniainc.com/anesthesiaevaluation.
