Measuring Value in Spine Surgery

With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) there is increasing pressure to measure the value in healthcare. Patient value in spine surgery can be defined as a balance between expertise, quality, and cost. Nebraska Spine Hospital has been recognized for excelling in all three areas by being awarded the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska Blue Distinction for Spine Surgery+. The PLUS+ means we not only provide the highest quality care but also an outstanding healthcare value.

Nebraska Spine Hospital leads the way in maximizing the value for our spine surgery patients. Our board certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeon are experts in their fields and provide the best spine surgery care in the region.

Outside the operating room, Nebraska Spine Hospital has assembled a supportive and skilled team of professionals to ensure exceptional patient experiences, infection prevention practices, and patient safety quality measures. In addition, by focusing only on spine we are able to invest in the most up to date equipment and training and utilize its fullest potential.

With the increased demand for quality in healthcare it is important for the healthcare consumer to know that at Nebraska Spine Hospital the highest patient value is central to everything we do.
