3 key anesthesia performance indicators ASCs should track

Key performance indicators can help ASCs measure how their anesthesia provider's performance measures up, according to Alpharetta, Ga.-based Surgical Information Systems.

Three KPIs to track:

1. Normothermia. This KPI tracks whether a patient's temperature is out of the normal range.

2. Postoperative nausea and vomiting. Examining this KPI and decreasing it over time ensures patients will have a better experience following surgery.

3. Medication administration. Factors affecting surgical outcomes can be analyzed using medication administration data.
