American Surgical Development was developed with a vision. This is the creation of sustainable partnerships through state-of-the-art healthcare. We believe that when patients are provided with the best possible service and care, the financial outcome can be maximized for both ambulatory surgical centers and surgeons. Patients receive help in understanding how the procedures and treatments they are paying for provide them with important benefits. This includes the ability to receive efficient medical care in a timely fashion. We work with doctors and surgeons to increase reimbursement from their patients. This enables physicians to spend additional time with all of their patients. This ultimately means every patient has access to better care and services.
One of the specialties of America Surgical Development is locating ambulatory surgical centers that are being under-utilized. We form a sustainable partnership with these centers and the surgeons. This not only ensures the financial reimbursements for the surgical centers and surgeons are being maximized, but the post and pre-operative care received by the patients is also exceptional. These are the best surgeons and surgical facilities throughout the nation. The best clinical outcomes are provided with state-of-the-art technology and products. We work with ambulatory surgical centers and surgeons all over the nation with the following specialties:
• General surgery
• Reconstructive and plastic surgery
• Interventional pain medicine
• Orthopedics for joint replacement
• Colorectal and gastrointestinal procedures
• Obstetrics and gynecology
• Ear, nose and throat or otolaryngology
• Pediatric surgery
• Spine surgery
• Bariatric surgery
We work hard to locate out-of-network, under-utilized ambulatory surgical centers for the creation of a sustainable partnership. Once a partnership has been established with these centers, the surgical center operating rooms are effectively filled with patients from the network and surgeons. We strive to increase the financial potential of the surgical centers and surgeons while providing patients with the best post and pre-operative experience. Health clinics have been established all over the United States to provide preventative and medical healthcare services for the people living in these communities. When an individual visits a health clinic to find solutions for their specific health concerns, the result is they feel better and enjoy a better quality of life. This leads to much stronger communities and families.
All of the health clinics in the United States work hard to take care of the needs of their patients in addition to their healthcare providers, physicians and surgeons. Despite their efforts, they are still facing an extremely wide range of problems. One of the key issues is they are not being reimbursed correctly for the services they are providing. Another issue from the viewpoint of all of the healthcare facilities and health clinics in specific areas of the United States is the unbalanced work loads. The goals of American Surgical Development is to handle at least some of these issues to provide health clinics with the ability to make improvements in the services being provided for their patients in addition to creating a better work environment for the physicians.
Some of the most important work being undertaken by American Surgical Development is bringing overused surgical centers together with the underutilized surgical centers. This is an effective way to balance out the workload. When surgical centers and healthcare clinics are not able to function at their maximum capacity, this results in the loss of a great deal of money. Our mission is to make certain the healthcare and surgical centers we work with have enough patients to meet their full capacity. The services provided not only improve the care being received by the patients, but they also decrease the costs for the health centers to help ensure they are making their maximum profit.
We work hard to establish sustainable partnerships so the surgical center network we are working with, the surgeons and the physicians all have the ability to balance their work, maximize their profits and provide the best medical care in facilities with state-of-the-art equipment. American Surgical Development additionally helps ensure profitability by working with:
• Surgical practices
• In-depth patient benefit analysis for private insurance
• Durable medical equipment that is out-of-network
• State-of-the-art biologics and implants
• Digital and direct marketing specific for surgeons
• Ambulatory surgery centers
• Out-of-network proprietary billing services
How We Facilitate Sustainable Partnerships
American Surgical Development has a lot of experience in assisting clinics in providing a wide range of healthcare services to their patients. We are also experienced with helping health clinics providing interventional pain medicine, spine surgery, plastic surgery, general surgery, services for ears, nose and throat, obstetrics and gynecology services and anesthesiology. Our clients also have access to a wide range of consulting services such as digital and direct marketing. These services are proprietary for billing services that are out-of-network and surgeons. Anyone who manages or owns an ambulatory surgical center will understand how much pressure is involved with trying to make certain the center stays profitable.
When a profitable center is sustained, the employees are provided with an engaging and stable work environment. The employees are then able to help as many patients as they can. Ensuring a center continues to operate efficiently is difficult due to the unstable economic climate and all of the constant changes in technology. There are ways to help ensure the center will remain profitable for the long-term. These can include:
Providing Patients with Multiple Options for Financing: When the available financial options for the patients are limited, an extremely large group of potential patients is prevented from receiving the services they require from the center. When the individual is not provided with a finance option or payment plan that suits their needs, they will simply go somewhere else for similar services. The patients must be provided with an efficient and convenient way to access the medical care they need.
Providing Patients with the Latest Procedures: In order for the center to provide existing patients with the best possible services and be able to attract new patients, it is critical the center is able to stay relevant. This means the patients must be provided with equipment that is always up-to-date in addition to the very latest procedures. Spending additional funds on equipment does not have to result in a drop in profitability. This is because there are affordable loans available for medical equipment. This means the center can have innovative and modern equipment without sacrificing patient care or profit.
Hiring a Consultant: The majority of businesses who are directly involved with handling the day-to-day operations of a surgical center have a difficult time viewing the center with objectivity. When the center hires a consultant, a fresh perspective becomes available for viewing the business model.
There are numerous benefits for a patient using an underused surgical center. This includes receiving medical attention in a more efficient and faster manner. An underused surgical center provides the patient with access to excellent care because the surgeons and physicians are not forced to rush so they can see the next patient. They have additional time to help their patients with their individual medical requirements. We have made a commitment to helping patients receive the best possible care both prior to and after having a surgical procedure. Our dedication is making certain the network of surgical centers, surgeons and physicians are some of the best anywhere in the nation.
We can work with the patients to assist them in understanding which benefits they are entitled to when they use private insurance. This can help decrease how much they have to pay out-of-pocket for their healthcare and surgical procedures. Durable medical equipment is critical for any surgery center that is technologically advanced. The issue is a lot of the surgical centers located within the United States have not reached their full potential, so they are classified as underutilized. When a surgical center is being fully used, the result is the best procedural outcomes. We work with the providers in numerous different areas of medicine, including anesthesiology, orthopedics, bariatric surgery, plastic surgery and spine surgery, to help provide these outcomes.
We take pride in the exceptional quality of our ambulatory surgical centers. This helps the surgeons offer the best possible care. When a surgical center is underutilized, the expenses will outweigh the profits. This prevents patients from receiving top quality services. American Surgical Development works with the medical providers directly to ensure they have state-of-the-art equipment in their surgical centers. When the equipment being used is effective and reliable, the surgeon has more time to spend with their patients. This provides the surgeon with the ability to help their patients understand all of the potential benefits of the surgery. This is one of the most effective ways for a patient and their provider to establish a more substantial relationship.
A provider should have more to offer than just the equipment. This is the reason surgical centers are also offered consulting services for professional profitability. Once the knowledge of the expert is utilized, the surgical center will be able to consistently achieve the best utilization and the highest return for every piece of equipment in the center. We are there for the center for every step to ensure both profitability and efficiency are maximized for the center.
It can be a challenge to find a sustainable partnership if the center does not know what they are looking for. Some of the most important qualities of a great partnership are defined below:
The Attention to Details: The center can be transformed when the partner pays attention to the details and understands what is necessary. While the details are being handled by the partner, the staff can concentrate on performing their jobs. A good partner for surgical development has the ability to drive the success of the center by providing advice and recommendations regarding cost.
Understanding the Medical Industry: A great partner for surgical development has an exceptional understanding regarding the medical sector. This means they are able to clearly identify the position of the center so the process can be streamlined to make certain the center is still operational and profitable for the long-term.
Standing Beside the Center: Surgical centers have had a difficult time for the past few years. Reimbursements have been consistently declined and patients have become limited. When times became tough, a lot of the development partners disappeared. Even when times are rough, a great partner will be there to help the business make it through.
A Genuine Interest: Every medical practitioner is not familiar with the best way to operate an ambulatory surgery center. The surgeons who started a private practice discovered they had a lot to learn. A great partner will take the surgeon through every step. This is possible because they are experienced with an excellent track record.
