July 31, 2013

Interested in becoming CASC (Certified Administrator Surgery Center) certified or want a review of the critical areas for ASC administration? Then register today for ASCA's CASC Review Course in Las Vegas, October 9.

The comprehensive, one-day course is "a great class for people to go to and figure out where they really need to focus their efforts to understand the full responsibility of an ASC administrator" says Debra Stinchcomb, a consultant with Progressive Surgical Solutions.

Expert faculty will cover key topics in the five content areas of the CASC exam:

  1. Regulatory and legal issues

  2. Finance

  3. Delivery of patient care

  4. Quality management

  5. Human resources

"ASC administrators do not have the hours to sit, read and study for taking the CASC exam," says Kirchner. "The CASC Review Course is the fastest way to learn what you need to know to be an excellent administrator and lead a multi-million dollar ASC to the next level."

In addition to Stinchcomb, the expert faculty includes

  • Beverly Kirchner — president and chief executive officer of Genesee Associates

  • John Goehle — chief operating officer of Ambulatory Healthcare Strategies

  • Ann Shimek — senior vice president of clinical operations, United Surgical Partners International (USPI)

The CASC Review Course isn't just for administrators planning to take the CASC exam, Goehle says. "It's a great course to take if you're a new administrator who wants to understand all of the responsibilities of an administrator. The references and resources that come out of it are extremely important and valuable."

ASCA's CASC Review Course is part of ASCA's 2013 Fall Seminars. In addition to offering seminars on quality, finance and accounting, and purchasing and inventory management, the CASC exam will be administered on October 12. Only qualified applicants can take the exam, and all applications must be postmarked by September 14, 2013. Click here for more information and to download an application for the exam.
