ASC supply chain tip of the day: Focus on reimbursement challenges, big spending

Ann Castro, a sales vice president for healthcare analytics software company BroadJump, discussed how ASCs can get the most bang for their buck in their supply chain budgets.

Ms. Castro shared the following tip with Becker's ASC Review:

"Surgery centers need to utilize tools that can easily identify the need of improvement in the price point to make decisions toward decreasing spend. ASCs should really focus on items that [present] a reimbursement challenge or that have a high area of spend, like physician preference items. That way, they can maximize what little time they do have available."
