MELVILLE, N.Y., March 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- North American Partners in Anesthesia announced today that its Chief Medical Officer, John Di Capua, M.D., will be a featured speaker at the American Association of Clinical Directors Perioperative Leadership Summit to be held March 15 – 17, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach in Huntington Beach, California. NAPA will also support the event as an exhibitor.

Dr. Di Capua will be presenting on the topic "Mega Anesthesia Groups." Dr. Di Capua will share his depth and breadth of clinical and operating room expertise, drawing on his extensive experience working with NAPA and the North Shore-LIJ Health System (NS-LIJ). In his remarks, Dr. Di Capua will discuss anesthesia's leadership role in the perioperative space, providing insights into the anesthesia market and exploring its mega groups and their distinctions. In addition, he will be discussing how the anesthesia landscape is evolving as a result of health care reform and will explore how health care facilities can benefit from these changes.

"The consolidation of the anesthesia marketplace has given rise to several very large anesthesia practices and management companies," said John Di Capua, Chief Medical Officer at NAPA. "Though they may have different models of governance and ownership, they clearly represent the direction a large piece of the specialty is moving towards."

The 2013 AACD Perioperative Leadership Summit is designed to help participants to gain a greater understanding of the future direction of perioperative management in the changing national healthcare reform environment. The summit will explore the expanding role of OR medical and clinical directors and their expected roles from the perspective of surgeons, nurses, administrators and other anesthesiologists. There will also be special emphasis placed on the concept of perioperative services as a center of excellence, as well as the needs and challenges faced by perioperative leaders related to resources, finances and care providers.
