Ambulatory Anesthesia: Maximizing Quality in Any Setting

Anesthesia has always been a critical component of surgery and overall operations in the operating room (O.R.). Improvement in the administration of anesthetics has led to a significant increase in the amount of surgeries taking place in outpatien facilities. As a result, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and office-based surgery facilities (OBSFs) are facing the same scrutiny hospitals traditionally have from regulatory agencies. Somnia’s newest paper, Ambulatory Anesthesia: Maximizing Quality in Any Setting, discusses this as well as:

  1. The emerging challenges outpatient facilities have to face as a result of various regulatory agencies’ requirements and restrictions
  2. The changes set forth by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), specifically for ASCs and OBSFs.
  3. Solutions outpatient facility owner should consider to best enhance quality-of-care for patients.
