Since 2010, Anesthesia Practice Consultants has been a leader in contributing demographic and clinical outcomes data to the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI). AQI is a national effort to collect outcomes data from practices across the United States, evaluating major and minor adverse events. This organization aims to create national benchmarks for every anesthesia group and practitioner, with the goal of better patient outcomes and more efficient perioperative care.
APC has been on the forefront of the quality initiative by being the first practice to submit information to this initiative. Through our participation in AQI, Patient and Surgeon Satisfaction Surveys, and hospital SCIP and service line improvement plans, we are positioned as leaders in evaluating anesthesia delivery systems.
