Calculate how SAMGI can impact your hospital's bottom line

Enter information in the fields below to see the kind of ROI your hospital could realize with a SAMGI program.

Average Annual ER Visits

The ROI realized with our surgicalist programs is derived from improvements in three key cost-related metrics: emergency surgical case volume, length of stay (LOS), and case mix index (CMI). Give us these metrics and we’ll give you a good idea of what your returns can be.


Emergency surgical case volume

Adding a dedicated team of board-certified SAMGI surgicalists can increase surgical volume. Operations are timelier and are no longer deferred until on-call, local surgeons’ elective cases, or clinic activities are completed. Also, the accessibility of a SAMGI high-quality trauma and acute care surgery program enables a hospital to build a reputation that attracts an increase in patients transferred to it for emergency surgeries vs. having to send trauma/ACS patients to other facilities for prompt treatment and surgery.


Length of stay (LOS)

There is a direct correlation between 24/7/365 surgicalist availability and decreased LOS. Inherent in this metric is improved quality of care through the elimination of surgical delays that reduce complication rates and improve patient outcomes. And since emergency patients undergo surgery without delay, hospital throughput typically improves while the availability of beds increases.


Case mix index (CMI)

Our highly qualified surgeons manage patients as a team in accordance with evidence-based guidelines and standardized best practices across our programs that reduce variations in care. This standardization of care, along with the requirement that our surgeons provide documentation supporting the resources patients require, typically leads to significant improvement in CMI.

Proven performance

The success of our programs is well documented in peer-reviewed data from a five-year study of a SAMGI program at Sutter Memorial Medical Center published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS). We achieve this kind of performance by integrating with our partner-hospital emergency department providers, ICUs, and inpatient hospital care providers to ensure that patients receive responsive, quality care — for better outcomes and improved hospital performance.
