In a new white paper, Athens Gastroenterology Surgeon Owner Jeff Williams, MD, shares how a professional anesthesia management partner can help with recruiting, clinical alignment, physician control, operational support, billing services and analytical tools.
The paper, 6 Ways Professionalized Anesthesia Management Improved My Surgery Center’s Performance, is available for download here.
When Dr. Williams first began working with Care Plus, one of his priorities was hiring anesthesia providers who would be an asset to his team and deliver excellent patient care. Care Plus quickly screened qualified CRNAs for experience, background, and skills. They recommended a short list of candidates to Dr. Williams. He hired two of them, and 10 years later, one remains in her position, and another Care Plus recruit has now been with the center for eight years.
Dr. Williams shares his experience with recruiting and how anesthesia services helped increase the number of cases performed daily and reduced the number of cancellations due to emergent anesthesia events. He also talks about how improving quality training and education for the anesthesia staff results in outstanding patient care and patient satisfaction.
“Any time we had a billing issue, or a bill problem related to anesthesia, we immediately called Care Plus,” said Dr. Williams. “Within about a day or two at most, I would hear back from the patient saying, ‘That was amazing. I’ve never had anybody handle that bill or explain it to me in that way.’ They always changed a negative into a positive.”
For more than a decade, we have been devoted to alleviating pain through anesthesia management for ASC clients. To learn more, contact the Care Plus team.
