3 ways ASCs can effectively engage with anesthesiologist teams

A strong relationship between ASCs and anesthesia providers is key to ASC success, according to SimplifyASC.

Three tips:

1. Patient selection guidelines. Anesthesiologists and ASCs should collaborate on determining which surgical cases can be performed safely in the outpatient setting.

2. EHR use. ASCs adopting EHRs can use them with anesthesia providers to standardize clinical processes to improve patient outcomes.

3. Analyzing data. Anesthesiology data can improve performance through analyzing surgical team performance and patient flow.
