Today kicks off our three-week series about capitalizing on the cardiology boom! Kristen Richards is the VP of Cardiovascular Operations at Atlas Healthcare Partners, and she will be our first guest in the series. We had a great discussion about what ASCs need to consider if they’re thinking about adding cardio cases. Preparing your infrastructure and staff has some ‘gotchas’ you do not want to overlook, so Kristen walks us through how to properly prepare. Kristen then covers capital expenses to plan for and shares the potential net revenue per case for some of these CV cases.

After my conversation with Kristen, we’ll switch to our Data & Insights segment. Today, I’ll break down the average number of accurately paid, underpaid, or overpaid claims. After sharing the stats of what 450 ASCs are experiencing, I’ll get into how you can analyze your own numbers and the steps you can take if you’re consistently getting underpaid.
