What quality care means to Physician Groups

We're defining quality care and perioperative leadership

We're innovators and leaders. Like-minded, high-functioning, anesthesiology groups who see the future of clinical quality and our continued success in the effective use of IT tools and metrics-driven data.

Our business management partner invests in our IT infrastructure, and our Continuous Quality Improvement program is second to none. We use the best tools for collecting and analyzing patient data. We then act on that data to constantly improve our perioperative processes, manage risk and increase our value to our patients, hospital and health system partners, surgeons and payers.

Our clinical governance boards, quality committees and national platform for sharing best practices enable our anesthesiology groups to constantly improve service from pre-op through the recovery process and beyond. Our perioperative services decrease case cancellations and improve patient satisfaction and utilization of resources. Our perioperative measurement tools and leadership improve efficiency and clinical quality. Our post-op pain control and communication improve patient outcomes and satisfaction.

Learn about our focus on quality care

One exciting thing that’s come out of this partnership is USAP’s quality committee. With ideas coming out of each individual group, we can meet together, collaborate on the ideas and find new ways to approach problems that previously had stumped each individual group. And, we can apply it to USAP as a whole.
