How to Keep Pain Management Cases in Your ASC

January 30, 2013

Learn how to keep pain management cases in your ASC with ASCA’s next webinar taking place Tuesday, February 5, at 1:00 pm EST. ASCA members save $50!

Some physicians believe that they can increase revenue and convenience by performing pain management procedures in their offices. If you don’t have a pitch prepared explaining why these cases should be kept in your ASC, you could lose critical case volume that is difficult to replace.

Amy Mowles, chief executive officer and president of Mowles Medical Practice Management, will arm you with the information you need to talk to these physicians about the reasons why both patients and physicians benefit when these procedures are performed in an ASC. Topics will include the following:

  • Substantial cost of opening, staffing and purchasing equipment for a new ASC or office;

  • Extensive licensure requirements for new ASCs and offices;

  • Time needed to set up new ASCs and offices;

  • Challenge of negotiating with payers and understanding insurance contracts;

  • Site-of-service payment differential; and

  • Safety and quality benefits of ASCs over offices.

Mowles will also discuss how ASCs can support their pain management physicians by providing ownership in the surgery center and aggressively marketing the ASC's pain program, which will help keep physicians from ever considering taking their cases elsewhere.

If your ASC has a pain management program, this is a webinar you cannot afford to miss. Register today!
