Preparing for an Influx of Cases Following Vaccine Distribution

Like most ASC’s this past year, you were probably shut down for a period of time because of COVID and couldn’t perform surgeries and are now preparing for an influx of cases. The original timeline of when the influx will occur, like most things with COVID, has been drawn out longer than anyone predicted and that is reflected in our industry. Many ASC’s are beginning to see cases rise to pre-pandemic numbers, however it is not making up for all the halted surgeries over this last year. 

Now that vaccines have become available the industry is anticipating that pent-up demand will finally be realized. In addition to individuals who had cancelled surgeries and now feel comfortable to make that appointment for surgery. We expect an increase in surgery referrals too, as primary care encounters increase once again.

As an ASC who has made it through this last year, your operations may look vastly different than they did a year ago. Are you short staffed because you had to lay off individuals due to lack of cases? Are you struggling to keep up with verification prior to surgeries? Are you struggling to stay on top of your A/R? 

These are all real problems ASCs are facing now and with the vaccine becoming available, more and more cases will be coming through your doors. This is where in2itive can step in and help.
