Perioperative Medicine Model of Care

The Perioperative Medicine Model of Care is a three-pronged approach to the postoperative care of patients at New England Baptist Hospital. The surgeon, hospitalist (MD, NP or PA), case manager, nurse, physical therapist and occupational therapist comprise the team. Pharmacy, laboratory, radiology and consultants are, of course, essential components of the care delivery system. The core team supports and supervises the patient's care from admission through discharge with the goals of providing tightly managed, protocol-driven care to reduce variation, streamlined care delivery and improved clinical outcomes. Our model also improves caregiver communication and coordination of care.
