Patient Satisfaction Tops Wish List for Anesthesia Services

  • Patient satisfaction is a new competitive advantage for anesthesia services. The holiday season also brings a silent pressure to find the perfect gift for all of the people on your shopping list.  Whether it is the latest and greatest technology or, as in a scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, the jelly of the month club, everyone is looking for, “the gift that keeps giving the whole year.”  For Steel City Anesthesia, the gifts we provide our facilities such as costs savings, efficient operating procedures and expert anesthesia services, are presents we deliver every day.  However, patient satisfaction is an integral part to quality management and is the perfect “gift” from any anesthesia partners.

  • Using latest technology to stay-in-touch with anesthetists and medical centers Advanced information technology available today has great potential for improving the quality of anesthesia services. From online scheduling systems to reporting, education and a free exchange of experiences and ideas, anesthetists can greatly benefit from having easy access to an online community of their colleagues. Especially if you are part of/or managing a fast growing anesthesia consulting firm. Research has shown that communication is key to successful management and implementing best practices. Anesthesia outsourcing companies must take advantage of the latest online systems to… Maintain high standards of anesthesia service Stay connected with  their anesthetists and CRNAs Provide easy access to hospitals, ambulatory centers and office-based practitioner clients Online systems reduces management time and effort Automation and online systems have proven to reduce management time and effort tremendously. They are also instrumental in increasing accessibility, accountability and efficiency. It may be easier to understand their effectiveness in light of how Steel City Anesthesia (SCA) has made it an integral part of their anesthesia delivery process. Our successful online scheduling system has advanced communication technology that: Enables our CRNAS across Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania to login and request work at a local facility, check schedules, and receive regular updates from SCA. Allows SCA to message all anesthetists via email and text, sending out work reminders daily and weekly. Provides updates to CRNAS about certifications, new laws, etc. Makes it easy for medical facilities to login to the system and see who is working there and when. This allows facilities to keep in touch with SCA administrators. Utilize progressive communication systems like the above to enhance your relationship with your anesthesiologist/CRNAS and facilities you serve.

  • We’re very excited to announce the launch of our new website located at www.SteelCityAnesthesia.com. We’ve been working very hard for the past couple of months to develop an online strategy that will benefit our employees, facilities, patients and future partners. Our new website and online scheduling system are a big piece of this and there is a lot we plan to add as we ramp up. You can also keep track of us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube. At Steel City Anesthesia, we provide high quality clinical anesthesia services to inpatients and outpatients in a variety of settings. We offer anesthesia outsourcing to surgery centers, hospitals and healthcare provider offices in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. Our website offers information unique to each one of these segments to help them understand why outsourcing is the best choice for their anesthesia needs. The website also provides a method for patients to schedule their procedure online and learn more about anesthesia. Our online scheduling system, linked into the new site, is an internal tool we use to ensure our facilities are staffed appropriately and our anaesthetists have complete control over their work schedule.  CRNAs and anesthetists can input their work requests, we then review and approve them to a facility. Facility managers have access to the system to see who is working at their location and when. The system has been a benefit to our employees as well as our facilities – and freed up some of our personal time as a side benefit 🙂   Our blog will contain topics related to the speciality of anesthesia. We are looking to post on a frequent basis, so stop back often to see what’s new. Or better yet, subscribe to our RSS feed . We’d love to keep in touch. If you’re interested in a specific topic that you’d like us to write a post on, please email us at support@steelca.com.
