ASA President Jane C.K. Fitch, M.D. authored a column in Modern Healthcare in July proposing the Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) model of care. Dr. Fitch suggested the PSH as a solution to our country’s fragmented hospital surgery system. The article ran in the print and online editions of the magazine.
The PSH was also featured on in a guest column authored by Dr. Fitch in June, where she discussed how the model leads to better outcomes and lower costs.
In July, ASA member and pain specialist at Pittsburgh’s VA Medical Center, Michael Mangione, M.D., discussed widespread chronic pain among veterans with a local CBS Pittsburgh affiliate. Dr. Mangione stressed the prevalence and severity of chronic pain in those who have served and how comprehensive treatment is imperative to quality care for this patient population.
