Surgical Services Summit

Improving Quality, Patient Experience and Financial Performance

Standardized Practice…Cost per Case Strategies…Value-Based Reimbursements…CMS Performance Measures

As we know too well, managing the surgical suite is not what it once was. We are past the days of simply worrying about on-time starts and scheduling challenges. Today, facing the impact of declining reimbursements, reductions in elective surgeries, and penalties tied to quality, perioperative leaders are pivoting to new strategies that will enable them to manage better under LEAN principles and consistent standards of practice. In addition, top imperatives, including safety, reducing errors, preventing readmissions and ensuring each patient has a positive surgical experience, must be addressed in order to thrive in the era of value-based care. 

The Surgical Services Summit will address challenges, trends and issues facing professionals called on to manage the business of the surgical suite and the care for patients entering their facility.

At the Summit, the following topics will be discussed

  • Reducing cost per case
  • Standardization of practice
  • Improving Patient experience--CMS quality measures/quality impact
