Perioperative Surgical Home Is an innovative model of delivering health care during the entire patient surgical/procedural experience; from the time of the decision for surgery until patient recovery.
Collaborative learning is designed to help organizations by creating a network structure in which interested organizations can learn from each other and from recognized experts in the areas for improvement.
The PSH learning collaborative involves clinical and administrative staff from health care facilities working together to redesign their systems to become more patient-focused and efficient for patients undergoing surgical procedures. Additionally, efforts are focused on reducing the overall costs of providing care. In such collaboratives, providers from various health care organizations work together to improve a common process of care by sharing experiences and best practices.
The first face to face meeting of the learning collaborative participants will take place on July 25-26th at the ASA headquarters in Schaumburg. A meeting announcement will be sent to the participating organizations, with information on hotels, ground transportation and registering for the meeting.
ASA is seeking volunteers to share short case studies about their experiences in developing a perioperative surgical home or one of its components in their practice or institution.

Please submit your case studies to Celeste Kirschner, Perioperative Surgical Home Project Executive at firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected case studies will be featured on the ASA Perioperative Surgical Home website.
