ASC Operational Assessments
A lot has changed since the first ambulatory surgery center opened in 1970. The number of procedures has gone up while reimbursement continue to be challenging. Hospitals, once enemies to nearly all ASCs, are now partners to many. The cost of running an ASC has ballooned while time available to manage the business is seemingly in short supply. And none of this fully takes into account developments following the enactment of the Affordable Care Act. This infographic from Avanza highlights the most significant moments and milestone in ASC history and underscores why no one can afford to be asleep at the wheel.
