Somnia Anesthesia Releases Web-Based Tool to Assess Anesthesia Services

Somnia Anesthesia has released a first-of-its-kind web-based tool that allows hospital executives to evaluate their facilities anesthesia services in four critical areas — leadership, financial management, quality improvement and clinical services.

The app, available on mobile devices, offers hospital administrators a comprehensive yet simple tool that grades the productivity and efficacy of their current anesthesia service provider based on a series of twenty questions in the four areas. Percentages are computed from a 1-5 scale response for each question, ranging from poor to excellent. At the conclusion, a score is provided along with recommended next steps for improvement, if applicable, according to the company.

"The importance of anesthesia services evaluation cannot be understated; anesthesia is the heart of the OR and the OR is the heart of the hospital. Without an efficient, high-quality anesthesia service provider, a hospital's clinical and financial standing suffers," says Marc Koch, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Somnia Anesthesia. "The application gives hospital decision-makers a quick tool to utilize to measure the effectiveness of their anesthesia department. We're delighted to offer this service to the hospital management and believe that many will find the application highly useful and helpful as they seek to remain competitive in the evolving healthcare environment."
