3 ways to improve ASC quality reporting

Keeping up with ASC quality measures can be difficult for staff despite having a lower quality reporting burden than hospitals, according to ASC management software company Simplify ASC.

Three ways to manage quality reporting:

1. EMR software can streamline the quality reporting process, including monitoring infection control rates, hospital transfers and facility safety.

2. Patient safety and quality reporting tool kits available from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Joint Commission can offer extra insights for ASCs, such as how to prevent surgical site infections.

3. Quality reporting resources, such as the Leapfrog Group's survey and reports from the ASC Quality Collaboration are also available for ASCs to submit data and benchmark from.
