WellStar Health System: Surgeon Satisfaction Case Study

The Problem

WellStar Health System was experiencing many inefficiencies among the ANES and OR providers. Productivity rates were low and broken surgical processes lead to increased turnover times and on-time start percentages.

The Solution

ApolloMD stepped in to help approve efficiency by targeting three major areas: on-time starts, turnover times and OR utilization. Customized processes were put into place to create communication between the Anesthesiologist, Anesthetist and OR team members. Providers were placed on a pay-for-performance compensation model that aligned incentives with the surgeons and hospital.

The Result

With compensation tied to performance, ApolloMD physicians are motivated to decrease delays and practice as efficiently as possible.  This approach to anesthesia services has led to marked increases in both patient and surgeon satisfaction.
