"Without unity, anesthesiologists cannot protect the public from those who endeavor to limit patient access to an anesthesiologist's care or compromise patient safety with cost-cutting measures designed by those who stand to profit most."

The 2015 Perioperative Surgical Home Summit
By Karen Sibert, MD
This year’s second annual Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) Summit, held on June 26-28 in Huntington Beach, California, drew 40 per cent more attendees than the inaugural meeting last year, reflecting the growing national interest in the PSH concept.
Though the weather at the waterfront was cool and cloudy—typical “June gloom” for the west coast—the conference at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort attracted 426 registrants and 28 corporate exhibitors. The ASA and the University of California at Irvine’s Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care jointly sponsored the event.
The PSH is a recently developed care model that may help organizations reduce avoidable costs and position themselves better under both current and future payment models. It offers detailed protocols at every stage of the surgical or procedural patient encounter, from preoperative through post-discharge care, aimed at delivering more coordinated, high-quality, and efficient service.
