ASA Member Benefit Spotlight: 
Achievements

ASA is constantly working on your behalf to secure positive outcomes for your patients, your practice and your specialty. Here’s a glimpse into what we’ve achieved in 2017:

Advocated on Behalf of Members: ASA’s proactive actions to help Safe VA Care ensured that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) maintained its current physician-led, team-based model of care. Our continued vigilance throughout the year ensured no new states opted-out of the Medicare physician supervision requirement.

Strengthened Group Practice Solutions: ASA expanded its offerings to meet the needs of the entire anesthesia care team to provide education, team-based care models, quality improvement tools and marketing solutions. Anesthesia administrator and executives in your practice are now eligible for Educational membership—most at no additional cost.

Recognized Outstanding Members: The Fellow of the American Society of Anesthesiologists® (FASA™) designation recognizes physician anesthesiologists’ years of dedication to exceptional education, leadership and commitment to the ASA and the specialty.

Unveiled an Innovative Learning Experience: ASA introduced cutting-edge simulation technology, Anesthesia SimSTAT, to help practicing physicians and care team members improve their performance in the management of anesthesia emergencies.

Provided Expansive Resources: ASA and the Anesthesia Quality Institute® (AQI®) delivered information to help eligible clinicians successfully navigate MACRA and new CMS reporting requirements.

Moved from Volume to Value: The ASA’s Perioperative Surgical Home enabled participating institutions to reduce readmission and length of stay rates, reduce ER visits after discharge, improve room turnover rates and decrease costs.

These are just a few of ASA’s achievements in 2017; view the video below to learn more. We look forward to furthering the anesthesia specialty throughout 2018.
