David Hamilton, CEO of Mnet Health Services, a healthcare finance outsourcing company, outlined three ways to improve ASC quality through improved patient safety and outcomes.

Key details:

1. Implement physician-led care models focusing on patients. Safety is improved during an episode of care when clinicians work as a team and coordinate with each other when caring for patients.

2. Use data to improve processes. Using data to benchmark surgical performance and assess outcomes against other practices helps surgeons and other ASC staff determine where improvements can be made.

3. Carry out quality improvement initiatives. Review surgeon performance and implement quality improvement initiatives to improve surgical care over time.
