March 27, 2019 in Becker Hospital Review
In a recent Becker’s Hospital Review article, TRIOSE’s non-acute partner McKesson Medical Surgical discussed building and maintaining Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs).
The transition to outpatient models has seen health systems work to integrate data-driven operational models that ensure the continued financial success of their systems as a whole. A large part of those models involves reducing total supply cost, which includes supply chain. TRIOSE is proud to partner with McKesson Medical Surgical clients to do just that.
How Health Systems Build a Winning ASC Strategy
As healthcare continues to experience a seismic shift from inpatient to outpatient care, health systems are investing heavily in acquiring ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) or building new centers from the ground up, requiring health systems to reevaluate their ASC strategy.
Several forces, including patient preference and the adoption of value-based payment models, are pushing health systems to grow their ambulatory care footprint. As a result, the ambulatory care setting is experiencing significant growth. In fact, U.S. Census Bureau data shows that ambulatory care revenue was up nearly 5 percent year over year in the third quarter of 2018, totaling $264.6 billion.1
With this growth comes increased competition, and health systems are re-engineering their non-acute strategy to ensure success in this market. Leading health systems are working with companies like McKesson Medical-Surgical to design an operational model that supports long-term growth.
