Publisher’s Letter: June 2010

Improvements at ASC Communications; Tucker Carlson and Bobby Knight to Speak at October Conference (Oct. 21-23; Chicago); New Channels Added to Sites

We are taking several steps to improve the offerings of ASC Communications. A few of these we want to note are as follows.

1. 17th Annual Fall ASC Conference. This fall we are bringing in new keynote speakers including Bobby Knight and Tucker Carlson as well as 95 other business, physician and political speakers to make the fall conference — October 21-23 — our best event ever.

2. ASC Website. We have added channels on 1) healthcare reform, 2) ASC turnarounds and ideas to improve performance, 3) gastroenterology/endoscopy, 4) ASC valuations and transactions, 5) coding, billing and collections and 6) anesthesia. Please visit

3. Hospital E-Weekly. In addition to the Becker’s Hospital Review EWeekly, we have added a Daily Hospital and Health Care Alert for those who have interest beyond surgery centers. We have also added channels to the hospital site as follows: 1) anesthesia, 2) healthcare reform, 3) 30 Best Hospitals, 4) 100 Best Places to Work, and 5) Stark Act and Anti Kickback Issues. Shortly, we will add channels on 1) increasing volume, 2) financial issues, 3) staffing issues and staffing efficiencies, 4) physician practice performance and physician specialties, and 5) cancer care programs and cancer drug costs. Please visit

4. Orthopedic and Spine. We will be adding an orthopedic and spine device and implant insights section to all magazines for the rest of 2010. We are also adding two additional channels to the Orthopedic and Spine site as follows: 1) How to build a spine ASC channel and 2) an orthopedic and spine device news channel. Please visit

Very truly yours,


Scott Becker
