5 key traits of effective ASC administrators

ASC management platform developer Simplify ASC outlined the key characteristics of effective surgery center administrators.

According to Simplify ASC, the best administrators:

1. Pursue accreditation. Accreditation ensures their centers stand out from the competition and helps with payer contract negotiations.

2. Keep an eye on supply chain. Optimizing scheduling and taking advantage of inventory management software are two ways ASC administrators can stay on top of supply chain costs.

3. Keep their staff happy. Effective administrators show their employees they are valued and treat them with respect. They realize a culture of trust and respect is important for their success as managers.

4. Get their priorities in order. When new administrators start at an ASC, they make themselves more effective by evaluating what they need to learn right away and what they should learn gradually.

5. Improve scheduling. Effective and efficient surgery scheduling helps the entire ASC run smoothly. An effective administrator embraces technology and minimizes downtime.
