Welcome to the Stamford School of Regional Anesthesia

The Stamford School of Regional Anesthesia’s mission is to provide a high quality regional anesthesia training program in the context of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS). A robust regional anesthesia program is a critical component of ERAS in the perioperative surgical home model of care, which is designed to provide coordinated, organized care from the time of the decision to have surgery to 30 days post discharge. Driven by disruptive public policy, medicine is transitioning from the fee for service payment system to a value based system what alternative models of payments as the leverage for change. Anesthesia departments will be the driving force for the surgical home model in the next decade so it is imperative as an anesthesiologist to be educated about the inevitable changes in health care reimbursement that are being driven by the patient experience, quality, outcomes, and costs.

What Regulatory Bodies Are Saying About
The Surgical Home Model Of Care

“This new patient-centered model is designed to achieve the triple aim of improving health, improving the delivery of health care, and reducing the costs of care. These goals will be met through shared decision-making and seamless continuity of care for the surgical patient…..Each patient will receive the right care, at the right price, and the right time.”

- ASA, www.asahq.org/psh

“CMS has announced their intent to initiate a five year mandated orthopedic bundle program for hospitals in certain defined geographies….The new program, known as Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CCJR) would put most hospitals in 75 identified locations into the program effective January 1, 2016.”

- CMS, www.orthoserviceline.com

“We have to step up to the plate and say that we are perioperative physicians so that we can help optimize patients preoperatively, reduce variability intraoperatively, and help surgeons with the medical management of patients postoperatively to reduce the likelihood of readmissions and shorten length of stay.”
