Overview

Many hospitals nationwide aim to improve hospital-physician alignment, quality care metrics and surgical volume, but how important is the individual anesthesia provider in reaching these goals? Anesthesia leadership from this Southwest-based anesthesia group knew it was essential. Learn how Anesthesiologist Dr. James Johnson worked with medical staff to fix strained relationships with the existing anesthesia team, and improve documentation and organizational efficiencies.

Improvements include:

  • Improved turnover times
  • Increased case volume
  • Increased efficiency
  • 100% Adherence to SCIP protocols

This facility currently provides over 18,000 anesthetics per year in a department with over 60 Anesthesiologists and CRNAs within an expansive, regional county health system serving as an essential health care safety net to an economically disadvantaged community.  Under Dr. Johnson’s leadership the anesthesiology department has experienced enormous service growth and expansion; the health system’s executive team and board have aggressively utilized Dr. Johnson’s leadership and technical expertise to advance their mission.
