Economic models

The non-operating room anesthesia is becoming an increasing part of the services provided by the anesthesia groups. However, these services have classically been provided in an ad-hoc basis. Given the larger part of the anesthesia services these are becoming and the budget-concious healthcare environment, there is a need to understand the financial implications of providing anesthesia services to non-operating room sites and possible novel staffing models.

An excellent primer on the topic is presented in the Non-Operating Room Anesthesia text Chapter 21: Financial and Operational Analysis for Non-Operating Room Anesthesia by CJ Guo and A Macario. Other information regarding Economic issues and concerns may be found in the "Economics of NORA" literature section of the NORAlink's Resident Education folder.
