The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the healthcare industry, but ASCs are well positioned for the future. Hospitals will focus on outpatient strategies, making ASCs a more attractive option. In this episode of the podcast, Jeff Andrews, Chief Operating Officer at Regent Surgical Health discussed the trends and challenges in the industry.

ASC Trends for Value-Based Care Models

ASCs are naturally positioned for value-based care models as they are constantly looking to stretch the healthcare dollar. Looking ahead, the next several years will bring increased private equity activity with respect to physician groups, as well as changes to anesthesia staffing at surgery centers. These changes must be navigated carefully to ensure success.

The company is advancing employee engagement and talent retention to ensure a high level of job satisfaction for employees. Additionally, they are addressing reimbursement for their growing portfolio of centers nationwide.

A Bright Future for Surgery Centers

Jeff Andrews believes the future of surgery centers is bright as they become equipped to handle higher acute patients at a lower cost. As hospitals shift towards outpatient strategies, ASCs are poised to become a key player in the healthcare industry. Regent Surgical Health is leading the way in addressing the challenges of the industry to ensure success and provide top-quality care for patients.
