Perioperative Surgical Home Improves Quality, Reduces Health Care Costs
Schaumburg, IL - The Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) model consistently and significantly improves quality of care for patients and reduces health care costs, reports a first-of-its-kind, large-scale literature review of the PSH in the United States and abroad. The review, published online this month in Milbank Quarterly, provides further evidence to support the benefits, and encourage the adoption, of the PSH model.
“There is a global push for more rigorously coordinated and integrated management of surgical patients to enhance patient satisfaction and improve quality of care and outcomes, while cutting costs,” said Thomas R. Miller, Ph.D., M.B.A., co-author of the review and director of health policy research at the American Society of Anesthesiologists® (ASA®), Schaumburg, Ill. “Whether in the U.S. or overseas, our review found that the PSH model of care is highly effective at achieving these measures by reducing cancellations and surgical delays, lowering complication rates and readmissions, and shortening hospital stays.”
