One of the main challenges to getting a new ASC up and running is putting billing processes in place, according to Surgical Information Systems.

Three tips for billing success:

1. Monitor staff performance. New ASCs should check in with billing staff to identify areas for improvement, as well as where staff are excelling.

2. Set goals. Help staff understand expectations by setting reasonable and achievable goals.

3. Revise processes if necessary. If an ASC's billing processes aren't working as expected, staff should consider revising to work out any kinks.
