International Consulting

International benchmarks for anesthesia care do not exist. The clinical world relies on published information on key processes to monitor the quality of anesthesia services. Through the examination of these key processes, hospital management teams can better understand the anesthesia service strengths and weaknesses. By looking at and adapting best practices, an anesthesia service will better respond to the rapidly changing challenges of surgery, and develop creative resolutions for problems inherently unique to their medical system. Regardless of the regulatory context or national health system involved, anesthesia providers struggle with similar issues. In all settings, a tight management team can improve performance. Through mastery of key processes, struggling anesthesia services begin to adopt the same success characteristics that have made other anesthesia care models successful:

  • Strong and mutually beneficial physician relations
  • Effective leadership
  • Teamwork
  • High patient satisfaction rates
  • Efficient protocols, processes and design
  • Strict cost management
