Peri-Operative Surgical Home

Backus and Windham hospitals both introduced a Peri-Operative Surgical Home (PSH), a patient-centered service designed to streamline such preparations for patients and help lower the number of surgeries that need to be rescheduled at the last minute when a test or approval is missing. The PSH was launched at Windham in February with total joint replacement and spine patients and centralized the testing patients needed to have surgery. All patient testing results and information is also stored in a central location to “optimize” the patient for surgery
