Anesthesia Management Consulting and Support

Anesthesia Management Consulting engagements begin with our standard Anesthesia Services Evaluation. EHC will provide an assessment across all anesthetizing locations, evaluate your groups performance and identify opportunities to maximize anesthesia operational and financial efficiency.

Our comprehensive Anesthesia Services Evaluation includes:

  • Financial Analysis and Pro Forma Development including detailed analysis of the request for subsidy support
  • Anesthesia Utilization Analysis for all sites to include OR, OB and NORA
  • Evaluate current anesthesia contracts and service requests
  • Staffing Model Review to create innovative staffing models to fit specific facility needs and budget
  • Assessment of current compensation and compensation methodology
  • Review of processes which impact OR efficiency and throughput
  • Comparing current anesthesia practices to national best practices and EHC’s anesthesia performance metrics and key indicators
  • Evaluating anesthesia quality, safety and efficiency
  • Conduct surgeon, nurse manager and administration satisfaction surveys
  • Onsite Evaluation to include individual and small group meetings with key stakeholders (surgeons, proceduralists, OR nursing, hospital administration and anesthesia providers)
  • Final report with recommendations based on findings and analysis

After our reports and recommendations are presented, EHC can create a tailored plan of action to act on any recommendations. Common next steps include:
