If you are a health care professional in the ambulatory surgery center arena, we hope this blog serves as a valuable resource for you. Our mission at Pinnacle III is to help your surgery center thrive. The heart of everything we do is solving ASC problems. Whether you are involved in developing a new surgery center, managing one, or handling revenue cycle management, our goal is to provide helpful information. As we build on the content in this blog, we hope you will obtain answers to your most important questions optimizing your surgery center efforts as a result.
You already know the health care industry encompasses a rapidly changing landscape. Now more than ever, health care executives are required to be flexible in their efforts to evolve while simultaneously maintaining their organization’s profitability. ASCs are not immune to these changes. The way you operate your facility, recruit physicians, and engage your patients in increasingly competitive communities requires you to be proactive in thinking about new ways to operate if you want to stay ahead of the curve. Revenue cycle management is a more daunting task than ever before with the arrival of ICD-10 and increased financial responsibility being borne by patients.
We understand all of that. We have been working in the ASC industry for over 20 years and have seen every trend imaginable. We help outpatient surgery centers stay flexible, forward-thinking, focused in the face of turmoil, and successful no matter what the health care marketplace brings. Now, we want to take our help to the next level. It’s not enough to have productive conversations with you. It’s not enough to shake your hand at a conference and give you advice. It’s not enough to tackle your questions as you ask them. Rather, we aim to be an ongoing resource for you. We need to capture those conversations, that advice, those key moments when your knowledge was enhanced, and provide it in a way you can easily access and refer back to. We want to be your go-to resource on all things ASC.
Through it all, your surgery center excellence is why we exist, why we do what we do. In the spirit of being your guide in this ever-changing health care world, we give you this blog. In time, we hope answers to all your questions will be found in our gallery of ASC content. We will start with some of your most common questions and build from there. We hope you receive a lot out of this resource. We hope to solve your problems and help you prosper greatly. Welcome to Pinnacle III’s new blog – enjoy!
