Newswise — Miami, FL –August 25, 2011 – Delivery of surgical services is one area of hospital operations that will be affected by healthcare reform. In response, Enhance Healthcare will provide a free webinar next month designed to inform hospital executives of ways to integrate and align these services through anesthesia employment models. The presentation will provide strategic direction, performance expectations and a new implementation model for healthcare facilities that currently employ anesthesia providers or may be considering employment alternatives.

Howard Greenfield, MD and Robert Stiefel, MD will lead the program entitled Achieve Strategic Advantages thru Employed Anesthesia Models. The one hour complimentary webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 11:30 am (EST). https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/985126270 The board-certified anesthesiologists have developed a novel co-management solution that empowers hospital executives and anesthesia providers to become strategic partners. “This webinar will focus on the convergence of factors currently supporting an employed anesthesia strategy,” Dr. Stiefel explained. “Employment models that incorporate subject matter experts foster continuous improvement in the areas of aligned incentives, consistency, customer service and collaboration and offer a strong foundation for the coming integrated delivery of surgical care.”
