Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) August 27, 2009
Anesthetix Management, LLC (Anesthetix) announces the rollout of its state-of-the-art computerized quality and service management tool, OPTIMETRIX(TM).
OPTIMETRIX(TM) is the result of years of Anesthetix' well-honed clinical and business best practices in anesthesiology services and perioperative processes, and stems from Anesthetix' desire to prove its success and value in achieving the highest benchmark standards. It is a computerized, metrics-driven platform which allows Anesthetix' groups and hospital customers to continuously measure and improve clinical outcomes and operational processes. Notably, OPTIMETRIX(TM) incorporates an electronic data collections system to allow for comprehensive data collection, analysis and reporting, of over 80 data points, including Joint Commission Indicators, SCIP Indicators, PQRI, HCAHPS measures, timely OR case starts, improved surgeon and patient satisfaction, and productivity benchmarking metrics. With OPTIMETRIX(TM) in place, a hospital's anesthesia and surgery department can work together on a real-time basis to measure and improve both the quality of care and the service they provide to their customers, helping establish themselves as the facility of choice to patients, surgeons, and payors.
Under the direction of its Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sonya Pease, Anesthetix is now offering OPTIMETRIX(TM) to hospitals and ASC's in addition to its turn-key anesthesia practice development and management service, providing valuable feedback to its facility and clinician partners on a regular basis and further enhancing the overall value proposition of Anesthetix to its hospitals, surgeons, anesthesiologists, patients, and insurers throughout the United States.

Gottlieb, MD, President and CEO of Anesthetix. "Our goal is to constantly improve and evidence the superior care and service we provide at Anesthetix (e.g., low complication rates, minimized case delays and cancellations, faster case turnover times, improved operating room throughput, improved surgeon and patient satisfaction, etc.) and how this benefits our customers--hospitals, surgeons, patients, insurers. OPTIMETRIX(TM) allows us to go one step further and demonstrate our performance in a factual, data-driven manner, as opposed to just 'feeling like we're doing a good job'.
