Overcoming Common Obstacles to Implementing a Perioperative Surgical Home

Over the last five years, the perioperative surgical home (PSH) model has attracted increasing interest from OR directors, anesthesiologists, and surgeons. This team-based, patient-centered approach coordinates all phases of surgical care, from preoperative assessment through intraoperative care and postdischarge recovery. According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists, PSH initiatives have resulted in lower surgical complication rates, fewer readmissions, higher patient satisfaction, and lower episode costs.

Surgical Directions has seen similarly positive results from systems with a PSH in place. Despite growing interest in this model, however, many surgery department leaders are unsure how to launch a PSH, and even those who have started one tend to face stumbling blocks.
