Perioperative Surgical Homes

The American Hospital Association’s Physician Leadership Forum and the American Society of Anesthesiologists hosted a complimentary webinar on the Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH). PSH strives to achieve the triple aim of better health, better health care, and reduced expenditures through continuous improvement for all patients undergoing surgical procedures.  The PSH is a patient-centered, physician-led, multidisciplinary, and team-based system of coordinated care. It guides the patient through the entire surgical experience from decision for the need for surgery until 30 days post discharge from a medical facility.  The goal is to create a better patient experience and make surgical care safer; thus, promoting a better medical outcome at a lower cost.
