Do we really know what a “good” clinical guideline is? How can we accurately compare facilities and providers when they care for very different patient populations? What effect has the Medicare anesthesia “opt-out” rule had on access to anesthesia care? These questions are vastly different, yet the investigators who are attempting to answer them share a common characteristic: they are physician anesthesiologists.
During the ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2014 annual meeting, ASA Health Policy Research (HPR) and the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) cosponsored “Interesting Questions in Anesthesia and Approaches to Answer Them,” a session for investigators in health services research in anesthesiology that featured presentations from five health services researchers about a diverse set of topics. Each presentation held unique implications, while all aimed to advance the practice of anesthesiology and demonstrate the value of physician anesthesiologists. We thank all those who attended. For those who were unable to attend, we’d like to provide a snapshot of the important work being done by ASA members to answer a broad range of clinical, research and policy questions.
