ASA Member Benefit Spotlight: 
Succeeding in Value-based Care

The health care environment continues to evolve, making team-based care crucial to enhancing patient outcomes. The Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) is a model of care that emphasizes value, patient and provider satisfaction, population health management and reduced costs. Led by a physician, the entire care team works together from the decision to do surgery through discharge and beyond.

Institutions that have implemented the PSH model of care have experienced the following successes:

  • A regional medical center reported a savings of $1.5 million in the first year.
  • A major health system reduced the length of stay for hip/knee arthroplasty cases from an average of 110 hours to 51 hours.
  • An academic center saved an average of $10,000 per cystectomy case compared to pre-PSH cases and reduced the length of stay for these cases from 10.5 days to approximately six days.

Your institution can experience outcomes like these by participating in the PSH Learning Collaborative. The PSH Learning Collaborative assists institutions with PSH pilot implementation, optimization, expansion into new service lines or system-wide conversion. Critical access, 340B, military, Veterans’ Affairs and small or rural hospitals can apply to the PSH Scholarship Program to receive full or partial funding to cover PSH Learning Collaborative participation costs.

All members of the care team benefit from participating in the PSH, including nurse anesthetists, anesthesiology assistants and anesthesia administrators & hospital executives. From patients, to clinical professionals, to administrative staff, all will see positive outcomes with this team-based model of care.
