Next month: Cost-saving tips in outpatient surgery

Next month's issue will focus on saving money and generating revenue in outpatient surgery.

We'll look at the impact of health care reform and what you should do now. We'll look at changes one hospital made that added $10 million in revenue in the OR alone. We'll tell you about a change one center made that saved more than $15,000 per month. We'll tell you about a center that reduced its preop overtime by more than 11 hours per nurse per pay period. We'll tell you about a manager who felt overcharged by an IT support service and developed her own. We'll also tell you about some free software that significantly reduces the cost and time for you to compile, analyze, and post quality data.
