The clinical world relies on published information on key processes to monitor the quality of anesthesia services. Through the examination of these key processes, hospital management teams can better understand their anesthesia service strengths and weaknesses. By looking at and adapting best practices, an anesthesia service will better respond to the rapidly changing challenges of surgery, and develop creative resolutions for problems inherently unique to its medical system. Regardless of geographic location, anesthesia providers struggle with similar issues. In all settings, a tight management team can improve performance. Through mastery of key processes, struggling anesthesia services begin to adopt the same success characteristics that have made other anesthesia care models successful:

• Effective leadership
• Efficient protocols, processes and design
• High patient satisfaction rates
• Strict cost management
• Strong and mutually beneficial physician relations
• Teamwork

As part of our examination, TAS reviews the following processes:
• Adherence to Standards of Care
• Pre-Op Assessment System
• Process Issues (including but not limited to):
• Anesthesia techniques
• Best practice staffing and/or compensation model
• Medical cost savings
