The outpatient migration: 3 things for anesthesia groups to consider

Anesthesia practices considering expansion into the outpatient setting should weigh several factors before taking action, according to Anesthesia Business Consultants President and CEO Tony Mira.

Three things to consider:

1. The payer mix at an additional venue should provide a better yield-per-unit than the overall average yield for the rest of the practice.

2. Surgical volumes should be sufficient and consistent to justify additional manpower.

3. Not all ASCs survive; critically evaluate trends and future forecasts.
