Insights from an ASC Expert: Scott Bacon
How many surgeon partners do I need to form a new ASC partnership?
The short answer is, it depends. No one wants to hear this, but it is much more complicated than one number. The focus should be on the revenue required for a successful ASC partnership. To determine projected revenue, we analyze historical outpatient case types and associated volumes for the interested surgeon partners. A carpal tunnel procedure reimburses very differently than a total knee replacement, but both can be profitable cases for the ASC partnership.
