Daniele Mariconi, recruitment team leader at Somnia Anesthesia Services, explains how the company recruits anesthesiologists and nurse to service healthcare facilities, including hospitals, ASCs and physicians offices. The company currently has about 200 anesthesiology clinicians working with clients in 15 states.
Marc Koch, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Somnia Anesthesia Services and an anesthesiologist, shares the following comments regarding the recent study by The Lewin Group, published in the Journal of Nursing Economics, that claims the certified registered nurse anesthetist-only anesthesia model is the most cost-effective anesthesia model for delivery.
Somnia Anesthesia Services recently presented a free webinar entitled "Keeping Your Surgeons Satisfied — The Role of Anesthesia Management in Meeting Their Demands and Optimizing the OR."
Speakers were Maureen Martin, MD, chief of surgery at Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield, Calif.; Jim Edwards, CEO of Greater Hazelton (Pa.) Health Alliance; and Marc Koch, MD, president and CEO of Somnia.
According to a recent study, 20-40 percent of a hospital's revenue is generated by the OR. In a future that portends lower reimbursement rates, it is imperative that all processes and clinical elements surrounding the OR are efficient and effective. The relationship between the anesthesia department and surgeons figures prominently into this equation and cannot be overlooked.
This Webinar will help you understand what it takes for your hospital to attract and keep surgeons satisfied, and what that means to your bottom line. Learn from our speakers how they improved OR activities at their hospitals by implementing better anesthesia management and surgeon-centric scheduling without sacrificing clinical quality, safety and patient and staff satisfaction.
