Flow and Efficiency: Flip Rooms, Disposables, Two PAs (Dec 2019)
These materials are intended only for those that attend the live activity on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019.
Outpatient joint replacement surgery is considered by many to be safe, convenient and cost effective across an ever-widening array of procedures. This delivery model has the potential to increase patient comfort and satisfaction, while improving efficiency and reducing health care costs.
These monthly activities will review best practices for outpatient joint replacement protocols and procedures. They will focus on a model that enables improved access to high-quality care at lower costs with the goals of improving surgical care, mitigating risks and barriers to enable rapid discharge, and achieving high-quality patient outcomes.
This activity is jointly provided by OptumHealth Education and Surgical Center of Greensboro.
There was no commercial support received for this activity.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of anesthesiologists, PAs and physicians who have an interest in outpatient surgical care.
