Perioperative Surgical Home. Perspective II.

Academic Article


  • Healthcare delivery and payment systems in the United States must continue to be reformed to address currently untenably increasing healthcare expenditures, while increasing the quality of care. The Perioperative Surgical Home is a highly patient-centered approach to care, focusing on the standardization, coordination, transitions, and value of care, throughout the perioperative continuum, including after hospital discharge. To increase the value of surgical care, any Perioperative Surgical Home model must translate, implement, and sustain improvements in quality, safety, and satisfaction, plus cost reduction strategies, throughout the perioperative continuum. Healthcare informatics, analytics, decision support, and practice change are central to this effort.
