Same-Day Surgery explores outpatient surgery in all settings, including freestanding surgery centers, hospital-based outpatient surgery programs, and office-based surgical suites. As changes in healthcare drive increasing numbers of procedures to the outpatient setting, we help you stay one step ahead of potential liability, accreditation and regulatory noncompliance, and financial downfall. Same-Day Surgery provides all the information an administrator, business manager, or clinical manager needs to know, including patient safety, cost savings, reimbursement, regulations, accreditation, and infection control.
