At JLR Medical Group, patient safety and quality have always been paramount. That is why we have partnered with industry-leader FIDES to measure, track and report quality data on every case we perform.
A proven, refined program founded by anesthesiologists, FIDES has 18 years of experience producing anesthesia quality data. Their tools, including simple checklists, allow us to easily and cost effectively measure and compare quality data at the deepest levels - by facility, site, service line, provider and payer across more than 100 different data points, including:
And through FIDES, we are able to benchmark this data against ourselves as well as against more than 700 anesthesiologists in 20 other anesthesiology groups across the country. This benefits everyone - patients, our client hospitals and surgery centers, surgeons, and our own medical team alike.
In JLR's efforts to work with our clients to improve perioperative streamlining, and patient satisfaction/safety, we staff anesthesiology personnel in a care team model with a supervising Charge Physician who takes on the role of "air traffic control" for an OR, not just for the day but for a week at a time. This unique approach aids in consistent communication and transfer of information throughout the workday, keeping operations running smoothly and efficiently by proactively dealing with issues that arise. The Charge Anesthesiologist can address challenges like abnormal or missing lab tests, minimizing delays and turnover between cases. This operations model also aids with staffing consistency and anticipating surgeons' needs.
Our experienced and accomplished JLR clinicians are also deeply invested in peer review and evidence-based care, and we back that up with our advanced metrics to yield clinical excellence.
