The transition to value-based care models has increased pressure to deliver high quality and cost effective care. The medical home concept has gained traction in the primary care setting, and now, the perioperative surgical home has the potential to improve patient satisfaction, outcomes, and cost-effectiveness in the acute setting.
Dr. Zeev Kain, Chancellor’s Professor of Anesthesiology and former Associate Dean of Clinical Operations at University of California at Irvine Health, will share challenges and lessons learned implementing their Joint Replacement Surgical Home to provide more coordinated, standardized care.
What you’ll learn:
– An overview of the Perioperative Surgical Home model, and how it can improve outcomes while reducing cost
– Lessons learned from UC Irvine’s implementation of a Joint Replacement Surgical Home
– Considerations for implementing a Perioperative Surgical Home in your organization
