Hospital-ASC Joint Ventures

Experts in connecting ASCs with Hospitals

Whether the ASC is 100% hospital owned or a Joint Venture agreement, ASCs have a unique advantage to help hospitals achieve their ACO, population health management, and reduced reimbursement challenges. Having the right software that allows both hospitals and ASC physicians to maintain transparency and control is the key to achieving win-win partnerships.

In the hospital environment, the best of breed approach is common because each specialty department has needs that the Enterprise EHR is not able to fulfill. Surgery Centers equally have their unique needs to run at optimum efficiency, profitability and maximum physician utilization. A traditional EHR alone is not able to meet those challenges in an ASC and must be supplemented by a specialized system that can easily handle block physician and physician group scheduling, implant ordering and tracking, case costing, inventory management, and state reporting requirements to name a few.
