Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) pro-grams are mechanisms for achieving multimodal, evidence-based reductions in surgical stress and value-based improvements in perioperative care. This session will present the rationale for as well as the basic and unique elements of an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program for gynecologic minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS). We will discuss how ERAS for MIGS can be a leveraged to optimize value-based care by focusing on goals such as narcotics reduction, same day discharge and patient centered service. This will include providing high level understanding of gynecologic surgery economics and outcomes measures instruments. The panel discussion is designed to solicit the experience and input of the AAGL membership pertaining to these topics in order to better inform ERAS guidelines for MIGS.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Explain the rationale of an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS); 2) define how we measure success using pertinent clinical and patient reported out-comes including narcotic reduction and same day discharge; and 3) review and explain the concept of value-based health care and how ERAS for MIGS can be a strategy for achieving better results.
