How to choose the best supplies for your ASC

Assessing products used in an ASC can help staff save money and improve efficiency, according to the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses.

Three ways to save money on supplies:

1. Test products. ASCs can have patients try out products before committing to buy them, which helps ensure the product is a good fit for the surgery center and its patients.

2. Do research. Completing research about whether a product is billable through contractreading reviews, and confirming whether it's FDA approved helps ensure a new product is safe and usable in the ASC.

3. Consider value. Evaluating the value a new product would bring to an ASC helps confirm whether it's worth introducing.
