Somnia Issues Statement Defining Accountable Anesthesia Organization Model

Somnia Anesthesia has issued a news release in which the national anesthesia services company defined what it is terming an "Accountable Anesthesia Organization™" (AAO).


Somnia describes an AAO as a transparent, collaborative partner in the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective anesthesia care, in a news release.


"Anesthesia has a role in the care given in both acute and ambulatory care settings," said Hugh Morgan, director of quality assurance at Somnia, in the release. "Therefore, as hospitals and other providers consider the strategic alignments and transparent partnerships required for ACO participation, it is extremely important that anesthesia be included in the process. Anesthesia's participation is essential to the sustained success of ACOs."


Furthermore, Somnia said an AAO can promote the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective care by focusing on five key areas aligned with the structure of ACOs: transparency, resource utilization, quality metrics, cost containment and patient experience.


Somnia describes the AAO model in a new report titled "The Role of Anesthesia in Accountable Care Organizations."
