ASDManagement publishes first comprehensive book on ASC development and management

After 30+ years in the business, and 1 year in word processing, ASD Management has published the first book taking a systematic approach to the strategies and details of developing and managing an ASC. In the words of co-author Joseph Zasa of ASD Management, “Many articles are published every year, but few describe a proven, systematic approach written by people who are successful developers and operators of surgery centers.”

“There are now over 5,000 ASCs in the U.S.,” writes co-author Robert Zasa of ASD Management. “The low cost of ASCs with very high quality of care have fostered the creation of these centers in almost every area of the country.” Yet, not every surgery center is successful in meeting the prime directives of high quality patient care and safety within a profitable center.

Developing & Managing Ambulatory Surgery Centers is the first book dedicated to the cornerstones of ASC operations: patient care, business office processes, risk management programs, payer contracting and revenue management. The cornerstones are detailed in the four book components: ASC predevelopment, development, management and lessons learned from the field.

Contents is enriched by contributions from the ASD Management team, and experts revered in the ASC industry: Scott Becker JD and Amber Walsh JD of McGuire Woods, Ken Seip of Siemens Financial, Aaron Murski of VMG Health, Joe Baugh of CG/Medvest, Randy Bishop of Surgical Notes, Durr Boyles, Steven Dobias of Somerset CPA and Steve Sorey. And ASC physician leaders: Dr. T K Miller, Dr. John Fitz, Dr. Michael Latham and Dr. Alan Valadie.

Informative, current and entertaining, a must for seasoned professionals as well as industry newcomers, instructors and students. First edition published in March 2016.
