ANESTHESIA MEDICAL GROUP, PC (AMG) IS A 64 PHYSICIAN, 170 CERTIFIED REGISTERED NURSE ANESTHETIST (CRNA) ANESTHESIA PRACTICE SERVING THE GREATER NASHVILLE COMMUNITY.
We recently sat down with Patrick Forrest, MD the President of AMG to ask him why his group uses FIDES™.
Dr. Forrest told us that one of the primary business reasons that they use FIDES™ is that it gives AMG a significant business advantage. “This data gives us a very powerful marketing tool that allows us to make a compelling argument that our group provides superior care. For example we can use (FIDES) to bring forth qualitative data showing low complication rates for the patients we take care of at our facilities.”
AMG uses the data from FIDES to:
- Provide reports to facilities for fulfillment of regulatory and accreditation requirements.
- Provide specific feedback to sites of service for process improvement.
- Be prepared for when quality data is a part of payor contracting.
“The ability to provide very detailed quality data is a big selling point for the group as we look to expand. Most groups, even more sophisticated groups, cannot provide this type of data. The ability to do this gives us a significant advantage.” Dr. Forrest went on to give us a very poignant example of what he means. “One of our physicians was recently in a meeting with hospital Quality Staff where he was presenting some of the FIDES data to the hospital CEO. The presentation went very well and the CEO was very engaged with us in this discussion around our quality data. At the end of the presentation, the CEO turned to another group at the meeting and asked them if they were tracking quality. There was a very long, very uncomfortable silence until the other physician group’s representative simply shook his head and said ‘no’. We were very glad not to be in that position.”
PARISH MANAGEMENT CONSULTANTS (PMC) IS AN ANESTHESIA SERVICES AND PERIOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT COMPANY WITH OVER PROVIDERS AND SITES IN LOUISIANA.
We recently had the opportunity to speak with Frank Rosinia, M.D. co-founder, and member of the Board of Directors at Parish Management Consultants.
Dr. Rosinia, who is also the Chair of the Department of Anesthesia at Tulane Hospital and Medical School and a practicing clinician, spoke to us about why his group uses FIDES™. In his straightforward way, Dr. Rosinia talked about the need to track quality data. He told us that collecting, analyzing and being able to talk about quality data is an essential part of doing business now and will become even more critical in the future.
“Hospitals want quality data, period. Either you can give it to them or you cannot. You must be able to talk about quality data if you want to grow or even maintain your business.”
Parish Anesthesia’s mission statement says that they are “dedicated to the provision of world class services... (and) driven to provide the best quality anesthesia as defi ned by national benchmarks and supported by results oriented, quantifiable management services.” Dr. Rosinia and his partners know that Fides is a great way to support this mission.
FIDES allows PMC to:
- Illustrate the high level of quality service the group provides to their patients.
- Be prepared for future contracting requirements involving quality data.
- Provide feedback to sites, service line managers and individual providers on quality outcomes.
“First and foremost collecting quality data helps us ensure the highest patient care. It is also critical from a business perspective. Practices will need quality data if they want to participate and thrive in the era of changing healthcare payment mechanisms. There is a clear need for quality data and you are really at a significant disadvantage if you don’t have it.”
