Envision Physician Services is dedicated to equipping our clinicians with the knowledge and tools needed to ensure our patients’ safety throughout every step of their healthcare experience.
In recognition of Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 11-17, we would like to spotlight TEMPO, an anesthesia-based workflow that reflects our company’s commitment to providing the highest quality care to our patients.
TEMPO helps our anesthesia clinicians to collaborate with hospitals, surgeons, primary care providers and patients to facilitate workflow throughout the perioperative period. The service uses evidence-based clinical best practices and protocols designed to optimize the patient’s health throughout the perioperative period for the best possible post-operative outcome.
TEMPO provides a framework through which Envision Anesthesia Services can assume ownership of the perioperative process in accordance with the Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) model of care. The widespread acceptance of the PSH model reflects the growing need to comprehensively address the three domains of healthcare improvement outlined by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 2007 Triple Aim initiative:
  • Improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction)
  • Improving the health of populations
  • Reducing the per capita cost of healthcare
