Financial Stability

Your Challenges

We know that many hospitals, in particular, face challenges with anesthesia services, including:

  • A national shortage of anesthesiologists and CRNAs, causing a dramatic increase in the costs to hire and retain qualified practitioners
  • An increasing Medicare and Medicaid population whose anesthesia services fall so far below the rates of commercial carriers that they do not cover the costs of nurse anesthetists, much less anesthesiologists
  • The need to provide large stipends to ensure adequate anesthesiology coverage
  • Challenges negotiating managed care contracts

Our Solutions:  Minimizing Stipends and Maximizing Revenue-cycle Management

JLR Medical Group knows you want to provide the highest quality anesthesiologists to anchor your department without sacrificing financial stability.  With JLR, you can ensure that the business functions of your anesthesiology group are as competent as the clinical practice. Our experienced, specialized team minimizes stipends while at the same time, maximizing revenue-cycle management. We accomplish this by:

  1. Aligning streamlined coverage with efficiently scheduled ORs
  2. Capturing improved reimbursement through superior managed care contracting

JLR’s business structure and billing services team will improve your OR performance by working collaboratively with surgical administration and clinical leaders to adjust blocks, minimize delays and provide flexible coverage. We are continually evaluating utilization and adjusting staffing models to improve OR efficiency.

And because of our size, alliances and regional dominance, we can effectively negotiate contracts and pass along savings to our clients.

The JLR/PDM Diamond Report:  A Powerful Tool to Examine and Adjust OR Efficiency

Custom-designed and developed in partnership with Professional Data Management (PDM) and approved through the Florida Anesthesia Administrators Association, JLR’s proprietary Diamond Report provides each of our clients a detailed picture of their operating rooms by looking at the start and stop times of all cases performed at all times of the day.

Running millions of calculations in a matter of seconds and downloaded directly from the JLR/PDM billing system, the Diamond Report generates views to help improve operating room profitability through:

  • Adjusting staffing levels
  • Setting call responsibilities
  • Identifying surgeons who start late
  • Identifying holes in the OR schedule
