“AP Health gives me two surgical assistants on my OR days, one for each room, easily saving me an hour a day. Those same two practitioners are dedicated to me every day, which provides consistency, and when they’re out on PTO, AP Health provides me with a quality replacement assistant.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a question about AP Health? See the list below for our most frequently asked questions. If your question is not listed here, then please contact us.

  • What surgical specialties does your company cover?

    All specialties

  • How does AP Health help surgeons?

    AP Health is all about making surgeons’ lives at the hospital easier which makes yours easier – and your hospital more profitable – and a better place for patients to receive care. It’s about intelligently offloading non-procedure work to Advanced Practice Providers and other professionals and working as a perioperative team.

  • How is your firm compensated?

    Typically, we receive a stipend from the hospital to manage the Surgical First Assistant (SFA) program – and will guarantee savings (at your current volume of surgeries) while providing a number of additional benefits to your hospital. The remainder comes from the professional services that AP Health bills for separately that are deemed “medically necessary.” The percentage of savings depends on a number of factors including a hospitals’ case-mix, payor-mix, and surgeons.  AP is able to provide a discount to hospitals because AP bills third parties directly. However, there are many functions performed by AP which are not reimbursable such as double scrubbing, assisting on a non-medically necessary cases, and other payer specific restrictions.

  • Why choose AP Health to improve our hospital’s perioperative services – versus doing it on our own?

    While your hospital may be an exception, this is a new, advanced, perioperative approach for the vast majority of hospitals which simply do not have the in-house resources to manage and execute. This includes the Clinical Perioperative Staffing, Information Technology, and Perioperative Process Improvement services needed. As a third-party we can bill separately for our Advanced Practice Providers (that are deemed medically necessary according to strict compliance rules) and therefore save you money.
