Using best demonstrated practices to help navigate change

A real-world guide for ambulatory surgery centers and surgical hospitals

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm CT 

To help navigate change—from adding new specialties and/or physicians to opening a new facility—ambulatory surgery centers and surgical hospitals are seeking best demonstrated practices to support clinical, operational and financial performance. See how these best practices are helping to drive success at The Center for Orthopaedic Reconstruction & Excellence (CORE), a new surgical hospital in Oklahoma. Representatives from CORE will share their insights into how this approach is supporting the hospital’s performance goals, while optimizing the patient experience. Also joining will be Deb Miller RN MS, a clinical operations consultant from Cardinal Health. Deb will share her own insights into how she has helped ASCs develop and implement these best practices.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss the value of a clinical assessment to identify best demonstrated practices, based on the individual goals of each ASC or surgical hospital.
  • Describe how a robust pack program can help drive product standardization and cost savings.
  • Reveal how pack optimization can help surgeons make the best use of their time.
  • Outline the value of 1) decreasing your SKU count and 2) putting every product possible for each procedure into a single pack.
  • Explain the importance of data analytics in objectively targeting new ways to support clinical, operational and financial performance—while optimizing the patient experience.
