Aisthesis specializes in delivering custom anesthesia care teams and services to ambulatory surgery centers, office-based surgery facilities, and hospitals. We bring together skilled and compassionate anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists to provide high quality care and comprehensive solutions. We are known for our holistic perspective as we capture value across clinical and administrative operations.
Our providers and management professionals are committed to providing the highest quality anesthesia care and customer service to the individual patient, the physicians who care for them, and the clinical support staff in the facilities we serve.
We build teams of locally based anesthesia providers to serve physicians and care for patients in a variety of surgical settings. We feel strongly that each surgery center and practice has unique needs and qualities. To accommodate these distinctive characteristics we work with our partners to create tailored service plans and identify a core team of anesthesia providers for their centers.
Our recruiting team identifies the candidates to work in each center and encourage our partners to participate in the selection process. Provider placement is determined by the specialty of the practice, the expertise of the professional, and the overall fit with each unique facility. We thoroughly review every individual we hire to ensure that they possess not only clinical expertise, but also the positive attitude, professionalism, and outstanding work ethic that we have built our reputation on.
We manage and maintain the credentialing for all anesthesia providers with third-party payers and each center. We hire and credential enough clinicians to cover any planned or unplanned Paid Time Off at each center. We guarantee coverage for all cases our clients’ surgical schedule, both elective and ‘add-ons’. We utilize web-based software to coordinate weekly schedules for our local providers and send a weekly schedule of provider assignments to each facility we serve.
We hire top-tier professionals to care for our partners and patients. Each of the facilities we serve has an appointed site manager to help coordinate anesthesia operations and quality of care. Our site managers facilitate anesthesia quality assessments for the center, assist with supply and formulary orders, and participate in facility meetings and inspections, as needed. We consult with our clients regularly to ensure that we are meeting their current needs and can further accommodate growth plans.
Aisthesis is committed to helping our partners screen patients preoperatively to reduce the number of same-day cancellations related to anesthesia, to ensure positive outcomes while at the same time maintaining safety. Our providers are familiar with patient selection guidelines that outline the criteria for patients that are qualified to receive anesthesia in an outpatient setting. We share our guidelines with our centers and facilitate the screening process with patient phone calls, questionnaires, and chart reviews as needed. Additionally, we offer post-operative screening tools and services to help our clients fulfill the post-procedure patient call requirement and capture meaningful data.
We make every effort to contract with all relevant third-party payers and mimic the billing practices established by each facility.
