We are in the homestretch of our 9-part De Novo series! James McClung joins us this week for part #8 to take us through what you should do when you are 30 days from your first patient. We’ll review final regulatory and compliance checks, necessary equipment, technology, supplies, and contingency plans and cover how to prepare your clinical and administrative teams.

In our news recap, we’ll cover the results from ASCA’s price transparency survey, provide an update on the No Surprises Act, share how ASCs are adapting for success, and, of course, end the news segment with a positive story about a nurse who reunited with a man whose life she saved.
