Scott Bacon – Successfully Converting HOPDs to ASCs
74 Plays
1 month ago

Scott Bacon is the Vice President of Business Development at Compass Surgical Partners, and he’s here to cover how you can successfully convert an HOPD into an ASC. The switch has many benefits, such as market growth, reimbursement differences, physician retention, and high-acuity case migration. Scott will also share how to get started, what pitfalls to avoid, and how to evaluate whether a conversion or a de novo is best.

In our news recap, our first two stories will cover anesthesia – the first is about the current state and issues that ASCs face, and the second is about how one facility avoided closing operating rooms by getting creative with their anesthesia coverage. We’ll then cover the cyberattacks on Change Healthcare and, of course, end the news segment with a positive story about a woman who became a nurse after being so inspired by the nurses who helped care for her son.

Hope everyone enjoys the episode and here’s what’s going on This Week in Surgery Centers.
