How are ASCs able to attract and retain surgeons?

Surgeons can choose any ASC. And with so many ASCs competing to keep them, they will. Three effective strategies have emerged to help retain them for the long term.

Surgeons like to work with the same OR staff. They are able to anticipate needs and be more efficient. Quicker OR times mean things are running smoother and surgeons are able to get in, get out and get back to their other patients. And new software also helps reduce OR transcription time.

When surgeons bring up issues, respond to them quickly. Having a point person to address these concerns or conducting regular meetings focused on listening keeps both surgeons and patients happy.
