Somnia Webinar and Resource Document Provide Guide to Evaluating Hospital Anesthesia Services

NEW ROCHELLE, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 10, 2012) - Somnia Anesthesia, a leading national anesthesia practice management company, has announced a new resource document and webinar providing hospital administrators with a framework for a strategic analysis and evaluation of their facility's anesthesia services.

The resource document, "A Hospital's Guide to Evaluating Anesthesia Services," offers hospital executives a simple, yet comprehensive tool for evaluating the delivery of anesthesia services. The paper focuses on key areas to consider when conducting the evaluation -- leadership, financial management, quality improvement, and clinical services.

As a companion to the paper, the webinar, "Evaluating Your Anesthesia Services - What to Expect from Your Anesthesia Team," presented by Somnia Anesthesia on May 8 at 2:15pm EDT, will discuss two case studies. Presenters include senior executives from a Level I trauma hospital in New York City and an acute care hospital in New Mexico, who will explain how anesthesia services were evaluated and improved in their respective facilities.

"The first step in preventing a problem is to know about it early on. An anesthesia services evaluation does just that -- it allows you to take the preemptive steps to understand your current group and the challenges they face," says Marc Koch, MD, MBA, CEO and president of Somnia Anesthesia. "Whether it's an issue with leadership, financial management, quality improvement, or clinical services, all of the potential issues can be identified via an evaluation and subsequently, an appropriate and uniquely tailored solution can be developed for a facility."
