  • Ambulatory surgeries account for around 80% of all surgeries performed in the United States today. The volume of ambulatory surgeries is due largely to an expanding range of surgical procedures that no longer require inpatient hospital recovery. Hospitals are naturally concerned about this trend as their historic financial health depended on a robust inpatient OR. In the past, joint venturing was a means for hospitals to recapture the lost surgical volume, ultimately successful case volume growth (or maintenance) depends on providing a valuable product to payers, patients, and surgeons. Please join us on February 14, 2019 at 1pm Central Time as Jeff Peters, CEO of Surgical Directions will discuss the topic of “Riding the Ambulatory Surgery Wave: Increasing Surgical Volume While Cases Leave the Hospital OR”. A registration link to the event, hosted by Becker's Hospital Review, is provided below. In this webinar, Jeff will present information showing not only the current market trends, but how those trends are impacting hospitals across the country. He will also discuss the science, both on the clinical side that is enabling the shift to more outpatient surgeries as well as the analytics that show how this is affecting patients and providers alike. Finally, he will discuss the options hospitals have to recapture some of this lost inpatient volume through different mechanisms that will help grow outpatient volumes with both patient and financial benefits. If you care about surgical case volumes and how to take advantage of the opportunities presented by ambulatory surgical growth, you won't want to miss this session!

  • Facing the daunting challenge of intense competition and the ever-increasing demands of value-based care, hospitals are exploring a wide variety of approaches to improving both quality and efficiency.

    Gain sharing has long been a proven winner in aligning incentives, producing high value, patient friendly services. Indeed, the free-standing surgeon-owned ASC, is the time tested "poster child" of successful gain sharing.

    However, unlike the Stark ‘safe harbor’ regulation that permits ASC gain sharing, building a similar program between surgeons and hospital is more challenging:
