CAA’s Commitment to Quality
Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) serves 20 medical facilities throughout the Austin, Texas area. It is made up of over 80 physicians who have received board certifications from the American Board of Anesthesiology or are actively obtaining them. They have training in various specialties including cardiac, pediatric, and obstetric. CAA is considered a leader in providing quality medical care to patients in need of anesthesia. There are also over 130 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists committed to making patients feel comfortable and secure. The medical team’s commitments have helped them achieve the highest percentile benchmarks for quality across the nation.
CAA also has an administrative staff that works with patients to answer questions and help with payments. They work with numerous insurance companies so that patients can concentrate on their health instead of their finances. They can also provide information to clients about how to prepare for anesthesia and what to expect afterward.
The Anesthesia Quality Unit (AQU) works with CAA to maintain a consistent level of quality care. AQU uses data and education to guide CAA members towards current patient care trends that are efficient and successful. They can also guide the team toward effective future practices in the anesthesia field.
CAA was established in 1973 and provides general anesthesia, local anesthesia, and regional anesthesia. Pain and stress are relieved in patients throughout the process regardless of extensive surgery or minor surgery being needed. Breathing and comfort levels are monitored in surgical patients by CAA’s medical team.
