A Time To Work Together

Today, perhaps more than ever, recognizing the need to work together might be one of the most crucial elements to getting through these unique times. We all know the saying that “2 is better than 1” in reference to solving a problem. Or maybe you’ve heard the African Proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. If you are reading this, you most likely work in healthcare. We know we don’t need to convince you of the benefits of working together in healthcare, which consists of 11% of the entire workforce in the United States. Teamwork (working together) is essential for good healthcare and good healthcare would cease to exist without it.

Surgical Direct Inc is in the business of working together with Ophthalmologists and OR facilities to create an atmosphere of teamwork and possibility. We firmly believe that together can remove barriers, which helps us achieve safer and more efficient surgery with better outcomes for your patients. We work with physicians and OR teams all over the country, enhancing the cataract surgery day experience.

Surgeon’s feel safe with us.

The surgeon is always the captain of the ship in the OR. Our goal is to reduce barriers for our surgeons so they can focus on performing surgery to the best of their ability. This means providing surgeons with everything they need so they have peace of mind and feel comfortable while operating.

  1. New phaco & microscope technology at your fingertips.
  2. Tailored supply lists from your preferred brands
  3. Coordinated Lens Picks (Primary, Sulcus, AC, & Premium)
  4. Backup supplies for the day to ensure all accidental contaminations are covered (this includes lenses).
  5. Trained Technicians who support cataract surgery every day. Our guys are heavily trained in equipment protocol and specs, and are in the room ready to assist on every case!

We take unneeded pressure off of your OR Staff.

Like the surgeon, your OR team has enough weight on their shoulders. Between other case specialties in your OR, to supply inventory management, and (most importantly) patient care…your team needs to stay focused on what matters.

Surgical Direct becomes part of your team and alleviates the following:

  1. Cataract Supply Inventory Management
  2. Case Supply Pulling
  3. IOL Implant Consignment Management
  4. Equipment Cost, Maintenance, Repairs, and Troubleshooting
  5. Storage space needs for equipment & supplies
  6. And More…

For 20 years, Surgical Direct Inc has been perfecting cataract surgery support operations across the country. Our Mobile Cataract Service model allows your facility to pivot from high-focused and time-consuming admin operations, to a tested, trusted, hands-off approach of hosting cataracts surgery in your facility.

We believe in teamwork. We believe in working together to accomplish a smoother, safe cataract surgery experience. If you’ve never considered mobile cataract services, we believe now is a perfect time to start.

Now Is The Time To Start Outsourcing Cataracts

Being strategic with how you manage your OR is so important in the season we are in. Maybe (more than ever), it’s that much more important to save your capital dollars for specialties that will be most beneficial to your revenue growth. That is why we believe right now might be one of the best times to consider Mobile Cataract Services with Surgical Direct Inc.

Why? Well, there are numerous benefits! Let’s look at some scenarios…

“Our OR currently does not facilitate Cataract Surgery. Getting started seems overwhelming.”

Adding Cataract surgery to your OR can bring a new stream of revenue and put your staff back to work, which we all know right now (because of COVID-19) that everything helps! Many facilities who have a desire to branch into new specialties face common problems like:

  1.  “We don’t have the capital to purchase a phaco & microscope and the surgeon wants the latest technology.”
  2. “All the details of getting started feels overwhelming, from inventory, equipment, and staff training.”
  3. “We would love to branch into Ophthalmology, but we don’t have a surgeon relationship yet and don’t have time or network to get started.”

Cataract outsourcing with Surgical Direct will help in all 3 of these areas. We provide the latest equipment (whatever phaco & microscope the surgeon wants to use) directly to your OR without spending a dime of capital. Along with the equipment, we bring trays, packs, disposable supplies, and implants (tailored to the surgeon’s request) so your inventory stress is alleviated! On top of that, our technicians (who come every surgery day and provide hands-on support throughout the day) are trained and experienced in everything associated with cataract surgery. Leaning on their experience helps relieve the tension of the day.

Don’t have a surgeon relationship yet? Our established network in the ophthalmology world can be of use. All you need to do is let us know that you are interested in getting started with cataracts, and we’ll do the legwork of looking for a surgeon that wants to operate in your area.

But maybe you are reading this and already facilitate Cataracts?

“We already facilitate cataracts. Why start outsourcing now?”

 

Using Surgical Direct’s mobile cataract service comes with big benefits for facilities already managing a cataract program.

  1. Upgrading your phaco & microscope can happen immediately with no capital costs.
  2. Equipment flexibility (allowing the surgeon to change and try new technology easily, or multiple surgeons able to use different systems from each other)
  3. In-house inventory of cataract disposable supplies and IOL implants can be decreased dramatically (or even eliminated), allowing your team’s time and focus to go elsewhere. We take over inventory and ordering of supplies and lenses completely.
  4. Multi-room capacity upgrades! Jump from 1 room days to to 2 room days. We simply bring more equipment, and your day’s capacity just doubled.
  5. No Maintenance Costs. We maintain our equipment according to manufacture guidelines and PM schedules.
  6. Extra Hands. Our technicians jump in wherever they can from assisting the surgeon with setting to helping with room turnover so the day runs as smooth as possible.

For 20 years, Surgical Direct Inc has been perfecting cataract surgery support operations across the country. Our Mobile Cataract Service model allows your facility to pivot from high-focused and time-consuming admin operations, to a tested, trusted, hands-off approach of hosting cataracts surgery in your facility.

Anesthesia for your Cataract Cases

At Surgical Direct, we help ORs efficiently provide cataract cases in both upstart and long-term programs in hospitals and ASCs across the country.

Sometimes, getting started with new specialties (like eyes) in your OR can be daunting. Managing an ongoing cataract program on your own can also be task heavy and has its nuances.

Whichever category you are in (getting started or currently managing), here’s an important action-list to consider:

  • The Latest Specialty-Specific Equipment
    1. Getting started on your own requires new equipment purchases and thousands in capital
    2. If you are already manage a cataract program, you’ll know the weight of maintenance & equipment upkeep
  • Specialty-Specific Instrumentation & Nuanced Sterilization Guidelines
  • New Inventory Supply Lists & Consignments
    1. Inventory supply management for cataract surgery can be weighty.
    2. Lens Consignment management can be time-consuming
    3. Vendors Relationships & PO management
  • Surgical Staff Training
  • Staffing Increases (Including Anesthesia)

Surgical Direct Inc covers all the bases (listed above) in getting started and managing a cataract program in your OR, except anesthesia.

It’s not an un-common scenario that adding days to the OR’s schedule can cause scheduling conflicts with anesthesia.

Because we cover 15+ states, we have developed relationships that could be a potential resource to you. Our goal is to provide the best care and service for cataracts, and to be a resource and asset to your team in any way possible.

Surgical Direct announces a partnership with CPR Anesthesia to help with options in providing anesthesia coverage for Cataracts.

CPR Anesthesia is a full-service anesthesia placement and management group that provides:

  • Anesthesia group management
  • CRNA and MDA locum tenen, PRN, or full-time placement
  • Anesthesia-specific billing
  • Scheduling
  • Credentialing assistance
  • Malpractice insurance
  • Multiple Specialties

Surgical Direct has formed a relationship with CPR because we’ve found that sometimes anesthesia conflicts can be a real deterrent in getting started with new specialties like eyes. We would never partner with a service that we don’t believe in.

If you are facing a similar scenario in your OR and would like to explore the possibility of adding a new specialty to your OR, give us a call and let us connect you with our network!

Never heard of Surgical Direct?

For 20 years, Surgical Direct Inc has been perfecting cataract surgery support operations. We provide stability, service, and efficiency to your OR with per-case pricing and the flexibility to use what you want, when you need it. This includes:

Adding Ophthalmology To Your OR

Diversifying your OR with multiple physician specialties is a great way to increase revenue for your OR because it adds more potential revenue sources. Now you may be reading this and already know that Ophthalmology is not the most lucrative specialty for your OR.

Read the following article that highlights the top 10 physician specialties that generate the most revenue for hospitals. Note that Ophthalmology is NOT in the top 10 list. So why are we bringing it up?

Adding Ophthalmology to your OR is a great way to increase billable OR time.

 

Offering Ophthalmology (especially Cataract Surgery) in your OR can bring great benefits to your OR. Cataract cases are generally quick, and a good surgeon can bring upwards of 10-20 cases per day to your OR. This can help stabilize downtime in your OR and increase billable OR time dramatically.

The caveat (that you probably gathered from the above-linked article) is that Ophthalmic cases are not the most lucrative cases when compared to other specialties like Ortho. A big factor in this truth is the expense of all the nuanced equipment and supplies needed for Ophthalmic cases.

However, adding Ophthalmic cases to your OR with the help of Surgical Direct helps offset your startup cost dramatically, allowing your Ophthalmic cases to generate revenue for your OR from day 1. Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service allows you to be fully up and running for cataract surgery in your OR with no capital expenditure.

The current financial landscape requires all of us to be creative and intentional about adding revenue sources to make up the dramatic loss the healthcare system has sustained from COVID-19.

Right now might be a really good time to explore the possibility of adding Ophthalmic specialty cases to your OR to help fill up your OR schedule and get back to work.

So why work with Surgical Direct and what are the benefits?

We are so glad you asked!

The number 1 reason why it’s beneficial to work with Surgical Direct?

We create the opportunity for you to add eye cases to your OR without spending a dollar in capital (seriously, save it for more lucrative specialties!). Plus we provide outstanding in-room support for every case!

For 20 years, Surgical Direct Inc has been perfecting cataract surgery support operations. We provide stability, service, and efficiency to your OR with per-case pricing and the flexibility to use what you want, when you need it. This includes:

  • New Phaco Systems (Like Alcon Centurion, B&L Stellaris, & J&J Signature Pro)
  • Ophthalmic Microscopes (Like Alcon LX3 & Zeiss Lumera)
  • Ample Instrument Trays (Enough to keep your day moving & meet state sterilization guidelines)
  • Case Supply Management (Drapes, blades, cannulas, and bss)
  • IOL Consignment Management (Including premium & backup lenses)
  • As-Needed Supply Requests (Malyugin Rings, CTRs, and Vitrectors)
  • Quality On-Demand Support (In-room help with the equipment and turnover on every case)

Add More Rooms & Tackle Your Back Log

Not being able to operate on your patients has no doubt stunted your ability to help your patient’s, to deliver quality eye care, and to keep your business revenue goals intact. Now is the time to start thinking creatively on ways to fight back against your revenue drops due to COVID19.

Adding more rooms (seasonal or permanent, existing locations or new locations) with Surgical Direct will help tackle your cataract back log.

 

Having the option to operate in 2 or 3 rooms instead of 1 at your surgical location will increase your ability to schedule more patients in a shorter amount of time and effectively get your annual revenue projections back up to where it should be quicker. And with Surgical Direct as your partner, outfitting your ORs for cataracts has never been easier.

Surgical Direct is now partnering with surgeons to creatively tackle case back logs by offering additional room programs as well as location expansion options.

 

 1) Have your own surgical facility but need additional equipment to operate in more rooms? We can help outfit as many rooms as needed with additional phaco machines, scopes, trays, and more. Included in our services, you will have access to an expanded resource network, including disposable instrument set access.

2) Maybe you’re maxed at your current surgical location? Now is a great time to setup new surgery locations as options for your patients to help increase your case volume capacity.

3) Maybe you don’t need a new permanent location. No problem. We can help set up your surgical outfit in any facility on an as needed basis, even if it’s just seasonal to get through your back log.

In addition to adding rooms and locations, Surgical Direct provides flexible operating schedules (including Fridays & Saturdays) and new Satellite Surgery Locations programs, all with the reliable service that Surgical Direct Provides.

The reality we are all facing, due to the halt of elective surgery, is Ophthalmologists and OR facilities alike will be looking for creative ways to stretch their resources and figure out how to make up for lost time.

Surgical Direct Inc is the partner you’ve been looking for!

For Ophthalmologists, starting satellite locations expands your patient intake potential, which can significantly increase your practice revenue. We specialize in satellite surgery, and our satellite surgeons love our dependability and consistency, no matter where they operate.

How To Prepare for the Cataract Surgery Influx

COVID-19 has created unique and challenging circumstances for us all. Elective surgeries are by-and-large on hold for at least the next 30 days and due to the outbreak and containment challenges that the virus brings, it’s still too early to know exactly how long the non-essential medical procedure “freeze” will go on.

But what we do know is that the Covid-19 crisis will eventually come to an end and things will get back to normal. When that happens, ophthalmologists and other specialties will likely start piling on the cases that have been put on hold during this time so that they can take care of their patients’ needs.

We foresee this potentially creating an elective surgery influx for the latter half of 2020.

How to prepare for the cataract surgery influx  after Covid-19.

If you are already doing cataracts in your facility….consider the following:

1) Take inventory of your case supplies and lenses.

Being prepared is the best way to make sure that you are ready to take on the influx. Take inventory of your case supplies and vendor relationships to make sure that the supply chain is ready for a busy spell. This might be more challenging than normal as many specialties will all be doing this at the same time, so getting all the supplies needed for each day might be stressful.

*Alternatively, forming a partnership with Surgical Direct eliminates the need to manage any of your cataract supply inventory (AND Lens Inventory) and drastically reduces the heavy-lifting for you and your team. We coordinate with you and your surgeons, providing tailor-made case supply lists and lens picks for each case, bringing all supplies with us on the day of surgery. Think of the hours you could save.

2) Check the health of your cataract equipment

Checking the health of your phaco machines, hand-pieces, and microscopes before the influx hits is important, which may include performing in-house tests, and scheduling PM checks with the manufacturer. You don’t want an equipment failure to halt surgery in the middle of an influx. If your equipment is 10+ years old, now may be a good time to consider upgrading to new technology. The real problem we will likely be facing is that facility budgets will be very tight for the remainder of the year.

*Alternatively, forming a partnership with Surgical Direct opens the door immediately to access the latest cataract technology. Our per-case pricing model allows you access with no capital expense. Plus, you won’t need to worry about PM’s, repair costs, or backups. We take care of everything.

If you are not doing cataracts in your facility….the near future may be the right time to start.

Surgical Direct’s turn-key cataract program allows you to get cataracts started in your facility, mitigating the hassle and upstart capital to do so.  Don’t have a relationship with a cataract surgeon in your area? No problem! Our plug & play program connects surgeons, hospitals/ASCs, and referring OD’s in your community, to get the ball rolling. We then provide the equipment and supplies to your facility on surgery day. Starting a cataract program in your facility is easier with Surgical Direct.

So, as we all think about preparing for the elective surgery influx after covid19, planning ahead is the key. Now is a great time to start the dialogue about an upgraded cataract program with Surgical Direct.

Operate with the Alcon LuxOR LX3 Microscope

What is it like to use Alcon’s latest microscope technology, encompassed in their latest release, the LuxOR LX3? According to our clients…it’s awesome! We haven’t met a surgeon yet who has tried the LX3 and had a lot of negative things to say.

The Alcon LuxOR LX3

Let’s list out the highlights.

1) 6x greater Red Reflux area than traditional focused light microscopes

One of the biggest selling points on this microscope has to be the red-reflux. With a 6x great reflux zone, the patient can move approx 1.5in away from the center of the beam and still have bright reflux. Not only is the field greater, but it’s more stable, proving less “loss of reflux” from different angles, etc. This is accomplished by the proprietary ILLUMIN-i ® Technology and a different placement of the objective lens. This helps the surgeon’s efficiency during the case because there will naturally be less time having to reposition or adjust the scope or patient during the case to keep a sharp view.

2) Optics with a Larger Depth of Focus

The LX3 totes a larger depth of focus than traditional microscopes. This means that the surgeon will see more planes of focus at one time. This reduces the need to rigorously adjust focus of the microscope for different steps of the procedure. In fact, many surgeon’s after using the scope for a few cases rave about how they can literally set their focus at the beginning case, and rarely have to adjust throughout the case. This also increases safety and efficiency of the case.

3) Intuitive Design

The LX3 is designed for ease of use. The Control Panel system onboard the LX3 is highly customizable with the ability to save surgeon settings, and easily fine-tune settings during the case. LX3’s durable base and frame, make moving the microscope easy, while giving the surgeon a very sturdy feel when moving the auto-locking arm. The base rotates 360 degrees. The foot-controller is wireless (and also feels familiar is you already use Centurion), durable, and responsive. The head’s tilt mechanism makes those high-angle needs for glaucoma cases a cinch.

All-in-all, the ease-of-use and impressive technology onboard the LX3 provides an opportunity for your cataract cases to be smoother, easier, and more efficient. We didn’t even get into all of the integrated systems capabilities with Verion, LenSx, Centurion, and Ora that LX3 provides. 

We think if you haven’t at least tried LX3, you should give it a try. 

Surgical Direct provides comprehensive mobile cataract provisions, including phaco machines, case supplies, lenses, in-room support, and microscopes (including the LX3). When you sign up for our Mobile Cataract Service outsourcing solution, you have access to use LX3.

Increase Cataract Surgery Efficiency

“How can my OR team increase Cataract Surgery Efficiency?”

This is a question that every OR admin team and Ophthalmologist should be asking themselves. Efficiency is a key component to your day-to-day operations that ensures that your patients receive the absolute best care they deserve. Efficiency is not only about reducing OR time. It’s about putting systems in place that reduce barriers like stress, friction, and obstacles. When you are able to address the areas in your OR that cause these barriers, this is when everything “clicks” and your OR turns into a well-oiled, efficient machine that provides exceptional patient care.

We all want to provide better care, get better outcomes, in the most efficient way possible. But how do you practically do so in today’s medical landscape?

Meet Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service.

Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service is a hands-on partnership between surgeon, facility, and our full-service equipment provisions. We provide a solution that enables highly-efficient cataract surgical processes for your OR team, allowing more focus and attention to patient care, and less focus on the details of preparing for surgery.

How does Surgical Direct help increase cataract surgery efficiency?

  1.  New Phaco & Microscope technology: No capital or maintenance.
    Simply put, new technology helps enhance surgical efficiency. New Phaco systems report more efficient (and safer) cataract removal percentages than older equipment. Microscope technology in 2020 provides optics that enhance the surgeon’s view, which in effect can improve surgical outcomes and efficiency in the procedure. Surgical Direct provides all that you need at no capital expense and no maintenance costs: Phacos, Oph Microscopes, & all needed handpieces & trays specific to your facilities needs.
  2. Comprehensive & Flexible Supply Management: No admin burden on your team. Surgical Direct provides comprehensive supply chain provisions for all needed case supplies (minus drugs), tailored to the surgeon & facility needs. We coordinate with the surgeon on desired supplies, case volume, and specialty items in the weeks and days prior to surgery. On the morning of surgery, we bring everything needed for the day plus ample amounts of backups. What this means for the facility is no admin hours wrapped up in inventory.
  3. Full IOL line provisions: Premium, Primary, Sulcus, AC, and backups.IOL consignments are TIME-CONSUMING! We have a full-time lens inventory specialists that coordinates with the surgeon’s office to ensure that all lens picks are accounted for and pulled for day of surgery. This includes ordering special/premium lenses, and ensuring that backups are readily available, alleviating the guesswork on surgery day.
  4. Hands-On intra-operative support: Highly-trained, vetted, and reliable. Our surgical coordinators bring the equipment & supplies to your OR on the day of surgery, with plenty of time for sterilization, setup, and equipment priming. During surgery, our guys play a hands-on role with machine settings, helping open supplies, room turn-over, and more. They become part of the team in helping the day run as efficiently as possible.
  5. Team-focused partnership: A team mindset enhances efficiency. With Surgical Direct, you gain an industry partner that helps all aspects of your cataract surgery practice become better. Deep in our culture, we believe in the power of teamwork and positivity. We’ve played a major role in helping hundreds of OR’s across the country enhance their operational systems, provide better patient care, and increase cataract surgery efficiency.

Our turn-key cataract program is something we think you should at least consider. Give us a call or schedule a free demo today to get a full picture of what a mobile cataract service can provide.
