Value based healthcare is an intuitive approach in which patient centric, holistic care is the focus. Barriers and silos are broken down as we together share our pursuit of enhancing our patient’s experience through their entire medical journey, critical to optimization of health as our primary goal. Anesthesiology, reaching across nearly all specialties, is well positioned to lead perioperative value-based healthcare. Investments such as robust Anesthesiology driven Perioperative Surgical Home models and coordinated approaches to Acute and Chronic Pain Management demonstrate the value proposition as efficiencies, satisfaction and patient value are dramatically improved while costs are reduced.
