2020 is a great year to ramp up your cataract business. In fact, in several ways, there has never been a better time to start outsourcing than now. The cataract climate is changing, and there are more and more reasons (practically & economically) to begin a cataract outsourcing partnership.
Just in case you didn’t know, Surgical Direct Inc provides a mobile cataract service that provides the latest cataract equipment to your OR with no capital outlay. Along with equipment provisions, we provide customized and flexible case supplies (eliminating in-house inventory) and highly-trained hands-on support during surgery.
Why Outsource in 2020?
1) Higher Medicare reimbursement rates are about to kick in.
We all know what this means…revenue loss. Investing in new equipment may not be the smartest option right now. Instead of being stuck with old equipment, outsource with SDI and we’ll outfit your OR with new technology and help you make up the difference.
2) Easily upgrade to 2 Rooms
In light of revenue loss, a great way to increase revenue is to do more surgery. But we all know that OR situations can’t always accommodate more surgery due to time, and not enough equipment. Surgical Direct provides the option to have 2 fully operational rooms on eye day, so you can get more surgery done in a day. Our cataract coordinators work directly with your OR staff, adding knowledge and able hands to each room on eye day,
3) Expand your practice with Satellite Surgical Locations
Adding satellite cataract locations in 2020 will broaden your market and increase your practice’s revenue. Surgical Direct makes satellite surgery easy. Our OD referral network allows you get connected with referrals so you can build up surgery days quickly. We work directly with the hospital to outfit the OR with all the equipment and supplies you need to operate and feel comfortable.
4) Inventory and Lens Management is so 2019
Every partnership with Surgical Direct allows you the option to drop inventory and let us take care of all the little details. We can provide all ancillary supplies like blades, cannulas, viscoelastics, drapes, and more. We configure customized pack-out lists that are tailored to the surgeon and facility. This cuts down your inventory management for eyes, freeing up time and space in your facility.
Plus, no more lens consignments! Surgical Direct can provide any lens, any time, including all premium lenses. We work directly with the surgeon’s office for lens picks, which are triple checked and brought to your facility with plenty of backups.
2020 is ripe for the taking and here at Surgical Direct, our mission is to be the best cataract support team you’ve ever seen so you can focus on growing your cataract practice. Ready to learn more? Get in touch below.
