Cost-efficient Outsourced Anesthesia Management Services from Steel City Anesthesia, LLC
Steel City Anesthesia LLC can provide complementary staffing with certified anesthesia providers, often at no cost to Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs), hospitals, or doctors’ offices needing office-based anesthesia. Our network of anesthesia providers serves customer facilities across Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, and other states.
Our mission is to provide anesthesia management services that deliver high-quality clinical and administrative anesthesia solutions in ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals, and physicians’ offices, with paramount care for the patients we serve.
Our Goals, Your Advantage: Savings, Safety, Satisfaction.
Steel City Anesthesia provides ASCs, hospitals and doctors with anesthesia services that are often at no cost to them. Our anesthesia care team personnel are our sole responsibility which means we take care of recruitment, credentialing, scheduling, payment (which comes from the patient or the insurance provider) and liabilities. Anesthesia outsourcing increases your revenue and reduces cost at the same time.
We drive efficiency. Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) is quicker and much safer than conscious sedation. It has fewer or no side effects and encourages faster patient recovery which allows the centers we team up with to serve more patients. For instance, at one of our centers their Cases per Day have increased nearly 75% through the combined efforts of the center and our staff. That is an additional 750 patients seen as a direct result of outsourced anesthesia services.
Traditional OR staffing requirements are significantly reduced due to our resource pool of anesthesia providers. Steel City Anesthesia’s CRNAs can replace the need for an RN from a facility to be in the OR as well. This significantly lowers your surgical staffing requirements. Also with our staffing model, anesthesia services no longer need to be supervised by an anesthesiologist, all resulting in efficient utilization of your facility and your physicians’ time.
Anesthesia costs are usually combined with other fees under ‘facility charge’. Our efficient pharmacy utilization of anesthesia drugs helps your facility or medical center by leaving more money in your pocket. Propofol usage requires a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Not only do we increase patient safety through monitored care but our effective utilization of anesthesia brings savings to you and your patients as well.
Steel City Anesthesia delivers efficiency and convenience. We take the time to match our anesthesia providers to a physician’s working style and procedural preferences. By assigning anesthesiologists and anesthetists with ties to the local area and familiarity with your medical center, we really try to simplify things for everyone involved.
Outsourcing anesthesia to a quality health care provider like Steel City Anesthesia is a profitable, long-term management solution. We promote positive intra-operative and post-op experiences with shortened procedure and recovery times. This means that patients are more likely to return for follow-up procedures and give referrals.
We are always willing to accommodate special requests for our clients, no matter the case. Our staff has extensive experience working with gynecology, urology, dentistry, gastroenterology, endoscopy, ophthalmology and colonoscopy services.
Anesthesia billing can be confusing, time consuming and complicated. However, our partners at Practice Management & Billing Solutions Inc. (PMBS) have the expertise and skill required to understand issues unique to the specialty of anesthesia and its patients. This helps speed up payments and makes billing smooth and easy.
We promote health care integrity. The medical centers and physicians we work with can take advantage of our patient surveys and operative reports / anesthesia records to enhance the quality of their services.
We’re approved by a host of insurance providers including Medicare/Medicaid, High Mark BlueCross, Anthem Blue Cross, Health Assurance, United Health Care, UPMC, Medical Mutual and many others.
