Erik Sunset – Three ASC Problems That Technology Solves | This Week in Surgery Centers
Here’s what to expect on this week’s episode. 🎙️
Every surgery center encounters a range of financial and operational challenges. The good news? Technology presents a promising solution to overcome these hurdles.
Erik Sunset, the VP of Marketing at DocBuddy, joins the show today to discuss how technology can effectively address the challenges many surgery centers face. In this insightful conversation, we explore the potential of technology to tackle three key issues: staffing, workflows, and revenue cycle management. Here’s a quick summary:
😃 Staffing Help: COVID-19 exacerbated the staffing issues in ASCs, making it even more crucial to leverage technology. Examples like automated patient calling technology and integrated #EHR systems can alleviate the burden on limited staff, allowing them to focus on exceptions and critical tasks.
🔄 Improved Workflows: By implementing #technology solutions that centralize and standardize processes, ASCs can eliminate time-consuming tasks like chasing voicemails, emails, and faxes. This boosts efficiency and improves the overall operation of ASCs.
👍 RCM Enhancements: Don’t be afraid to take a hard look at your #RCM processes that likely have delays built-in, precisely the time lag involved in the traditional dictation and transcription process for surgical procedures, which comes with potential delays and inefficiencies.
