In an unexpected twist, healthcare spending over the last decade has declined to growth rates not seen since the 1960's.But while costs have slowed down, it hasn't necessarily translated into better outcomes and results. One area that can contribute to the bending of the curve is service line efficiency, namely anesthesia services.

In many instances, anesthesia contributes to a flattening of the healthcare spending curve, yet little is done to improve or understand how the curve can bend in a positive direction.

In Somnia's newest white paper, "Bending the Healthcare Cost Curve Toward Improved Anesthesia Value," the core measurements of healthcare value are reviewed and applied to anesthesia services, highlighting areas where specific initiatives by the right anesthesia partner can be implemented to capture the full value of an anesthesia department.
