Beata Canby is a principal and partner at LeftCoast Healthcare Advisors, and she joins us today to talk about managing the regulatory and certification process while trying to open a new surgery center. Beata does a great job of breaking down the fundamental agencies to know, what order to get your certifications in, and tips for speeding up the process and staying organized.

In our news recap, we’ll cover another research study that compared ChatGPT responses to ophthalmologists, new surgical smoke evacuation requirements, UnitedHealthcare’s new prior authorization requirements (or lack thereof), and, of course, end the news segment with a positive story about how a severely paralyzed woman got her voice and likeness back with new technology that combines AI with a brain-computer interface.
