OR Volume Growth Case Study
In November of 2011, ApolloMD partnered with Vail Valley Medical Center to provide anesthesia services to the hospital and its ASC, Vail Valley Surgery Center. ApolloMD successfully recruited a team of outstanding providers, and the ORs have undergone many positive changes since implementation of the ApolloMD model. In addition, ApolloMD partnered with the hospital to implement a pain management service as well as to provide anesthesia services to its newest ASC, Edwards Surgery Center.
The improvements in patient flow resulting from the ApolloMD model led to increased OR capacity, and surgeons seized the opportunity to schedule increased numbers of cases. Surgeon satisfaction is at an all-time high, and post-operative patient satisfaction increased from 60% to 90%. In addition to the clinical and operational improvements, ApolloMD was able to eliminate the sizable subsidy that was in place prior to the partnership.
