Activity Weighting: Medium

Subcategory Name: Care Coordination

Description: Participation in a Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) that provides a patient-centered, physician-led, interdisciplinary, and team-based system of coordinated patient care, which coordinates care from pre-procedure assessment through the acute care episode, recovery, and post-acute care.

  • Deploy perioperative clinic and care processes to reduce post-operative visits to emergency rooms;
  • Implement evidence-informed practices and standardize care across the entire spectrum of surgical patients; or
  • Implement processes to ensure effective communications and education of patients’ post-discharge instructions.
