Why Anesthesiology Practices Should Pay Attention to the Success Strategies of ASCs
The top three challenges facing ASCs today, according to the report, are:
1. Attracting and retaining surgeons and other physicians who will contribute to the facility's bottom line.
2. Hospital dominance in environments already saturated with ASCs.
The report notes that in a Becker's ASC Review article, Kim White, a consultant with Numerof & Associates, said "Going forward, ASCs are going to need to do three things to really survive: demonstrate economic and clinical value, demonstrate efficiencies and meet quality standards." This advice is applicable to anesthesiology groups as well, according to the report.
