Most financial analysis regarding the cost of non-operating room anesthesia in hospitals is incorrect. This article indicates why this situation exists and suggests how to perform the cost analysis in the right way. It also reviews financial and operational strategies that can result in more efficient scheduling of anesthesia, thereby freeing up anesthesiologist time in the main operating room for non-operating room needs.
