Excellence is in our DNA
USAP was founded in 2012 to provide leading, high-quality groups of anesthesiologists with a strategic partner that allows anesthesia providers to focus on what they do best—create positive patient outcomes.
Our visionary leaders created an exciting new approach to anesthesia care, building on our rich history, collective expertise, high-quality practices and innovative processes to meet the challenges of a changing healthcare industry, provide exceptional patient experiences and deliver excellent clinical outcomes.
Committed to quality
USAP’s collective depth and breadth of our anesthesia expertise and resources are unrivaled in our industry, thanks to our team member's commitment to high-quality anesthesia patient care and strong leaders who provide oversight within every local physician group and clinical quality committees, both locally and nationally.
Shaping the future of anesthesia
USAP’s unique, single-specialty partnership model creates an organization in which each and every partner is invested in our success. We’re blending our high-performing, forward-thinking cultures to build an entity that is better, stronger and more innovative than we could be alone.
We’re passionate about collaborating and discovering trends by applying the latest medical research to our practice through our IT tools, quality measurement capabilities and utilization of patient data.
Through this we have been able to create:
- Advanced analytics for efficient OR staffing
- Quality and charge capture at the point of care for every case
- Intelligent adoption of new medications, devices and techniques
- A national system for collecting and analyzing adverse events
- A best-in-class revenue cycle management system
- An evidence-based, perioperative blood management process that promotes the optimal use of blood products
