The Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) Learning Collaborative 2.0, which functions to rapidly accelerate the spread of leading practices, ends March 31, 2018. As a reminder, the PSH model is a patient-centric, physician-led, team-based system of coordinated care that guides patients through the entire surgical experience, from the decision to undergo surgery to 30 days post-discharge and beyond. The goals are to provide cost-effective, high-quality perioperative care and exceptional patient experiences. This is achieved through care re-engineering, shared decision-making and seamless continuity of care for perioperative patients. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Urological Association and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation have all endorsed the PSH model and have representatives on the PSH Learning Collaborative Steering Committee. Dr. Pease (community hospital), Dr. Stier (academic medical center) and Dr. Ferrari (pediatric hospital) provide a few insights for each unique setting.
