3 ASC quality reporting trends to know

Enhanced methods of quality reporting can help ASCs increase patient volume and improve quality, according to ASC management software company SimplifyASC.

The quality reporting trends to know:

1. ASCs are beginning to view quality measures as a performance indicator, able to affect a center's bottom line.

2. With the Leapfrog Group expanding ratings to ASCs, more centers are including the survey in their policies and procedures.

3. Increasing volumes in ASCs has influenced the uptick in focus on quality reporting. With high- deductible plans driving patients to lower-cost settings such as ASCs, an increase in surgical volume shouldn't lead to a decrease in quality.
