Today is the final episode in our 9-part De Novo series! Last but certainly not least, Greg DeConciliis joins us again to discuss Continuous Improvement. You have officially opened your doors, and you can certainly celebrate, but what you cannot do is become complacent. So, Greg walks us through keeping physician and patient satisfaction high, the role of data and benchmarking, how to cultivate an environment of growth, and how to continuously improve, expand, and thrive.

In our news recap, we’ll cover the 11 ASCs in California recognized by CASA, why it’s essential to screen for cognitive impairment in your patients, the latest on noncompetes and the FTC, and, of course, end the news segment with a positive story about a new serenity lounge at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
