Perioperative Surgical Home Overview

With the PSH model, the patient’s experience of care is coordinated by a Director of Perioperative Services, additional Surgical Home Leadership, and supportive personnel which constitute an interdisciplinary team.  The expected metrics includes improved operational efficiencies, decreased resource utilization, a reduction in length of stay and readmission, and a decrease in complications and mortality---resulting in a better patient experience of care.
