Revisiting Regional Anesthesia: A Pathway to Optimal Patient Outcomes, Surgeon Satisfaction, Value-based Payments and reduced Opioid usage in Post-Operative Pain Management
Modern advances in regional anesthesia can provide competitive advantages to hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers. This white paper examines how a robust regional anesthesia program improves efficiency, performance measures and profitability, and delights patients, surgeons and healthcare administrators.
Regional anesthesia and its related cost savings can play a vital role in successful bundled payment initiatives. Advanced techniques facilitate ERAS protocols by reducing pain, increasing ambulation and decreasing length of stay—essentially lowering costs while raising overall patient and surgeon satisfaction. A well-executed regional anesthesia program has the potential to meet the needs of clinical and community stakeholders—one that gives healthcare facilities a valuable competitive edge and yields success in today’s evolving healthcare landscape. New state regulations in nearly all US states address reduced use of narcotics for pain control. Regional Anesthesia is an excellent means to support the goal of reduced use of Opioids for post-operative pain management.
