More commonly now than ever before, patients are turning to their community hospitals to ease chronic pain. Adding pain management as a service line in your facility can create significant new revenue opportunities while meeting the needs of patients. Running an effective pain management practice takes skill and expertise that NexGen Surgical can seamlessly provide. We are extremely experienced in providing staffing and practice management services for busy pain management practices and can even start these types of practices from the ground level.
Our Approach to Pain Management
NexGen Surgical recruits pain management specialists to serve as part of a multidisciplinary team devoted to helping patients increase the quality of their lives. Patients with cancer, arthritis, spinal pain and nervous system issues can significantly benefit from skilled pain management services. Our fellowship trained, board certified pain management physicians are uniquely qualified to serve patients experiencing any type of pain for different reasons such as surgery, injury, nerve damage or metabolic problems such as diabetes. Whether a person’s pain is acute, chronic or a combination of the two, our goal is to always pair our clients with the best, most highly trained pain management specialists on our team.
Creating Another Profit Line for Your Practice
Adding pain management to your practice will offer another service line for your community and bring another profit stream to your budget. This allows your facility to keep care close to home for patients needing pain management services. A thriving pain management practice requires more than an excellent pain specialist—other considerations include performance goals, referral programs, other community medical resources and reimbursement. When you partner with NexGen Surgical, we plan for all of these elements so you can focus your valuable attention elsewhere. We know pain management and will develop a plan to make it work in your unique situation.
Understanding the Need for Pain Management
As you decide whether your facility needs to begin implementing pain management services, consider that the Institute of Medicine reports that over 100 million adults in the U.S. have chronic pain. Worldwide, more than 1.5 billion individuals suffer from pain related to cancer treatment and other conditions. With pain being so complex, difficult to diagnose and offering a myriad of treatment options, a pain management specialist is often needed. These physicians have an in-depth knowledge of the physiology of pain, the ability to evaluate patients with complicated pain problems, an understanding of specialized diagnostic testing and skills to perform nerve blocks, spinal injections and other interventional techniques to treat pain. Importantly, pain management specialists are able to appropriately prescribe medications for varying pain problems.
Part of coordinating patient care across the care continuum is being able to serve pain management patients. Adding this service line helps to maintain patient satisfaction and quality levels while avoiding readmissions. Our pain management specialists utilize a team approach to care by collaborating with other specialists to gain a better understanding of patient needs. This coordinated approach to care delivery can make a meaningful difference clinically and flourish into a profitable element of outpatient care.
