Clinical Colleagues, Inc. (CCI) can improve your anesthesia service line and support achievement of your organizational goals through our comprehensive practice management services. We have been in this business since 2004, helping healthcare organizations across the nation overcome financial and operational challenges, and transforming their anesthesia departments into efficient, patient-centric practices.
Patient-Centric Standardized Care
We implement patient-centric standardized care initiatives that are based upon national best practices and derived from Six Sigma and Lean principles. A key component is our proprietary 58-point Quality Monitoring Audit, which is conducted monthly for clients to assure a constant focus and achievement of CMS and accreditation standards. Standardized care results in reduced costs, increased efficiency, improved quality and better clinical outcomes across your health system, hospital or surgery center.
Efficient Staffing Models
Creating an efficient staffing model with the right mix of anesthesia providers can actually improve quality while reducing costs. On average, CCI has helped clients reduce costs by more than $300,000, and even saved one hospital $1.5 million, while still achieving high customer satisfaction and excellent clinical outcomes. We provide competitive compensation for anesthesia providers, allowing you to keep those providers that your surgeons like and adding new resources to round out and complete your staffing model.
Clinical Colleagues is very selective when recruiting new anesthesiologists and anesthetists to our practice. But we raise the bar significantly higher when it comes to selection of your hospital’s Chief of Anesthesia. We expect those we appoint to this role to be skilled and accountable leaders who understand the financial, operational and customer service impact of the anesthesia department on the hospital’s overall ability to succeed. Our experienced Chief Medical Officer and Regional Medical Officers provide the oversight and support essential to the long-term success of the Chief and the entire anesthesia team. Finally, our Managing Partners are onsite routinely and are personally accountable for results to hospital administration and the medical staff.
