Consistent Technicians Add Value To Your OR

No matter where you operate, Surgical Direct provides stability in your OR when it comes to cataract surgery. Our Mobile Cataract Service model provides new equipment, ample supply provisions, and highly trained cataract technicians to your OR on surgery day. To read a full description of what we offer, click here.

Part of our culture at Surgical Direct is a persistent and dedicated pursuit of unparalleled customer service in our field. Our goal is to offer the absolute best support to our surgeons and OR teams in our field of service. We believe that our technicians are the gold standard; the difference makers between our service and others like us in our field.

We also believe having experienced, aware, cordial, and supportive technicians in the OR during surgery can make a big difference on surgery day. These qualities in a tech can increase the day’s efficiency, raise the surgeon’s comfort level, and improve patient care by letting the nursing staff focus more on the patient vs other details (such as adjusting machine settings, opening case supplies, or taking out the trash).

Our technicians are highly trained in:

  • Phaco & Microscope Technology (annually, directly with the manufacturers)
  • Equipment Failure and Troubleshooting
  • IOL, Instrumentation, & Case Supplies (annually, directly with the manufacturers)
  • Anatomy of the Eye
  • Phaco Dynamics (Procedure & Cataract Surgery Techniques)
  • Case Supply Management
  • OR Protocols (annually)
  • Workplace Safety (annually)
  • Sterile Field Protocol (annually)
  • And more

Creating a “Team Dynamic” with Consistent Techs

One of the biggest stand-out differences between our service and others is our “ABC” tech model. In this scheduling model, our technicians are assigned to their surgery days with the intent that our accounts will see a familiar face and consistently work with the same technicians. Why? Because we believe that familiarity and consistency with whom you work with,  increases the flow of your surgery day by creating a true “team dynamic”. Trust and relationships are built between our techs and the teams they work with, and from our experience, this results in better surgery days.

Our aim is to help our surgeons achieve the best surgical results possible by supplying the right equipment, the right supplies, and the dedicated support they need, when they need it.

Mobile Cataract Service + MIGS

Are you an Ophthalmologist looking for partnerships to grow your practice and eliminate some of the logistical barriers that are in the way?

Just in case we haven’t had the chance to meet, we are Surgical Direct Inc,  a mobile cataract technology outsourcing service that delivers cataract technology and supplies to your OR on surgery day. We create opportunities by eliminating capital expense and inventory management, allowing facilities to allocate their funds and time elsewhere. For surgeons, this means you are able to use whatever technology you prefer (on demand) when you want it.

Regardless of location, we create stable operating environments for surgeons to be able to use the technology and supplies they want.

    • Our phaco systems and microscopes are programmed with your settings.
    • Our supply lists are tailored to your liking.
    • Our lens picks are directly coordinated with your office to ensure accuracy and ample backups are on hand.
    • Our techs are second-to-none in the industry: Programming equipment settings, taking out the trash, and highly trained with supportive ‘can-do’ attitudes.

Surgeons who use our mobile cataract service are also able to request MIGS technology for any case as an add-on item and we’ll supply it. This includes access to Hydrus® Microstent from Ivantis and iStent inject® from Glaukos.

MicroInvasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) in tandem with cataract surgery is growing in popularity (if patient criteria matches) due to the minimal difference in post-operative care, while providing improved management of IOP issues in Glaucoma patients. Our service partnership makes add-on items like MIGS simple and efficient when it comes to supplying the technology.

Plus, in the current economic landscape, add-on procedures like MIGS offer benefits for surgeons to be able to help their patients manage their glaucoma, reduce extra post-op needs, and increase to their reimbursement rates.

Easy MIGS access is just one of the many benefits of working with Surgical Direct. We also support our clients with easy access to YAG lasers, SLT lasers, and our Mobile Retina Services.

Our aim is to help our surgeons achieve the best surgical results possible by supplying the equipment and supplies they need when they need it.

Satellite Cataract Surgery Boost

Is your Ophthalmic practice looking for new ways to increase revenue in 2020 and beyond?

Satellite Cataract Surgery can offer a revenue boost for your practice and allows access into new markets of case potential that you did not have before. However, starting satellite surgery entails ample setup and administration before your first case. Ongoing management of satellite operations may also present unique and time-consuming challenges that differ from traditional practice. Some surgeons have the desire to establish satellite surgery because of the potential revenue stream, but are deterred by the startup details.

Surgical Direct’s satellite surgery program takes care of the legwork associated with getting started in a new satellite market. In addition, we manage many of the ongoing surgical details associated with the account. In short, we make it much simpler for our surgeons to start a satellite surgery in new markets.

Here’s how we do that:

1) Finding Your Satellite Market

The first step is picking a market to satellite. In initial conversations, we will help you determine which market is best for you and begin the legwork. Alternatively, approaching our team with a desired target market is welcome. Once we know general area, we can begin making calls.

2) Finding Referrals

A big piece of the Satellite Surgery puzzle is a healthy referral relationship. Often times, we already have connections with referring OD practices in the area that we can connect you to. If we do not have any previous connections, we will do the legwork in finding some.

3) Finding An OR

Next, we will take inventory of our connections with hospitals and ASCs we may already have in the area and start making some calls. Similar to referrals, we may already have a center that is interested in an extra day of cases that is just looking for a surgeon. If we don’t have pre-existing connections in the area, we will find some. We connect the dots for you.

4) Outfitting The OR

Once the previous steps are confirmed, Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Service will step in and outfit the OR with the equipment you need to operate comfortably. Select the Phaco system and microscope you want and we’ll provide it at no capital expense to the facility.

5) Ongoing Surgery-Day Partnership

Not only will we supply the technology you are comfortable operating with, but we also supply surgeon-selected ancillary supplies, lens picks, and backups for your cases. Our team works directly with your office on acquiring accurate lens picks for each surgery day, ensuring that you have what you need on surgery day. Read more about our provisions here.

Surgical Direct is the partner you have been looking for when it comes to Satellite Cataract Surgery. Our missions to create a more seamless cataract surgery experience and open the doors to new opportunities for your practice.

Operating Room Cost Management

Hospital systems (small and large) have been freezing capital expenditures and reducing expenses as much as possible across the country. Priorities for OR administrators and decision makers have shifted to conserving cash in any way possible due to the effects of COVID19. Outpatient procedures were shut down altogether for months. Certain states have re-opened elective surgeries, yet some facilities still have restrictions on case volume. Needless to say, it’s been an unprecedented year for healthcare.

Ophthalmology has lost the most volume in 2020 than any other specialty, seeing an 81% volume drop compared to 2019 (according to eyewire.news).

Cataract Surgery in particular has dropped 97% in procedure volume. This is largely due to the restrictions that have been in effect for elective surgeries and COVID precautionary measures in place. In-office patient checkups are at an all time low due to the pandemic. Hardly anyone is going to see their healthcare provider unless it’s an emergency.

As new COVID19 infection rates drop, elective surgeries have started to reopen. The more restrictions are lifted, the more we can expect to see a backlog of elective surgeries begin to flood our ORs. In other words, we may be facing a potential surge in elective surgery across the country.

This creates a unique challenge we’ve never encountered before. On a large scale, hospitals and ASCs will see surges in elective surgery cases, while experiencing strict spending restrictions due to the previous months of record-low revenues. Even if the facility has capital to spend, ophthalmic cases might be the last specialty on the list to acquire new technology or receive any investment.

Outsourcing your cataract equipment is a solution you should be considering.

Surgical Direct offers a perfect partnership model for the current landscape.

1) Access new technology with no capital expense.

We deliver the equipment to your facility on the day of surgery; Phaco machines, microscopes, hand-pieces, lenses, case supplies, and backups.

2) Eliminate your ongoing maintenance costs.

We maintain and repair our equipment directly with the manufacturer, ensuring that our equipment is working safely and efficiently at all times.

3) Eliminate inventory management costs.

Our Mobile Cataract Services include case supply and lenses for each case. Eliminate the time/cost connected to ordering, reordering, stocking, and expiration losses of cataract supplies from your facility.

4) Increase your facility’s surgery day potential.

Increase your cataract days from 1 room to 2 (or even 3) rooms with no capital expense, allowing room for more cases and increased revenue.

This just scratches the surface.

Our goal is to be a service that reduces your overall expense and increases your efficiency in cataract surgery and your level of patient care.

Partnership is the way forward. Partner with us!

Not All Mobile Cataract Services Are Created Equal

As a service provider in today’s economy, it’s crucially important to find and nurture the “lasting impact attributes” (or the key differentiation practices) that stick with a client and build lasting trust from their experience with your service. In truth, it goes way beyond the service itself.

We have all experienced (to some degree) a service or product that talked the big talk, but when it came down to the day-in/day-out interactions, it was a disappointment. Sure, perhaps the service or product was everything as advertised, but the details in-between did not deliver.

The reality is that the more “weight” or dependance that is involved with a service’s role…the level of trust with that services has to match. When you are dealing with patients (their time, their vision, their over-all health, and their safety), trust and consistent follow-through is a must!

10 ways Surgical Direct is different in our approach to Mobile Cataract Services.

 

Our goal is not to just offer a service. Our goal is to be a reliable partner that adds value to your OR, practice, and the patient experience. This bleeds into almost every aspect of our service, because it’s not just about checking the to-do’s off the list. The partnership mindset we foster plays into all of the below areas:

1) Consistent Technology

Consistency is important for efficiency. You will always get the same tech that you’ve requested on every surgery day. We will not bring something your haven’t approved or are not comfortable working with. This includes phaco, microscope, and all other supplies.

2)Back-up Phaco Machines (Every Time)

We always bring a backup phaco. This allows if a machine is acting up, we have another on-hand to keep the day running. And for more extreme (unforseen) situations, our warehouse team is ready to run more backup equipment or supplies to the surgical location if needed. We take all necessary steps to ensure your surgery day runs as smooth as possible.

3) Full Lens Consignments (every visit)

We work directly with your office for lens picks for surgery day so we know exactly what you need on surgery day. But beyond that, we also bring full consignments of your primary, secondary, and AC lens selections. This covers all last minute calculation changes, accidental contaminations, and unforeseen case issues.

4) Stationary Cataract Instruments

Unlike many other service providers, we do not travel with instruments. The reason we don’t is because Cataract instruments are too delicate, and travel allows too many opportunities for instruments to be damaged. We do provide instrumentation, but these instruments will be stationary at your surgical location, lowering usage from others, and preserving the life of the instrument.

5) Familiar Cataract Coordinators (Techs)

We have a policy with our techs and our scheduling, that 2-3 techs are designated to your account. This means that you will almost always see a familiar face on surgery day. The tech’s learn the surgical style of their surgeon and protocol with the OR team so each day is as smooth as possible, achieving a true “team” approach.

6) Highly-Trained Cataract Coordinators

Not only will your account tech be consistent and familiar, but they are also highly-trained. Upon hire, each tech goes through a 90-day intensive training of the equipment, surgery, OR protocol, in-service training, troubleshooting, and more…all before ever servicing an account on their own. You will NEVER get a tech that does not know what they are doing.

7) New Account Onboarding

If you are a new client, we do our part to ensure there are no surprises in our initial onboarding. We will request a visit to your main surgical location so we can observe and learn specifically how you prefer to operate. This allows us to thoroughly prepare for working with you in a new account.

8) Competitive (Hassle-Free) Pricing

We believe that you can’t put a price on the level of service you receive from us. But if you are comparing our services to other cataract outsourcing providers, you’ll notice that our pricing is very competitive. Plus, we don’t nickel and dime, no hidden fees, and offer simple and upfront pricing.

9) Retina, Glaucoma MIGS, SLT, & YAG Access

Being a SDI Partner allows for direct access to other technology offerings from Surgical Direct. Our Mobile Retina Services offer flexibility and capital savings for Retinal operations. Add-on Glaucoma procedures easily to your surgery day, we’ll provide what you need. Add-on SLT & YAG procedures to your day to lower your travel (especially beneficial in satellite locations).

10) Grow Your Surgical Options (Mobile & Fixed)

We are here to help you grow. Tap into our OD referral network and expand with satellite locations. Upgrade your main surgical locations equipment, or let us help you move from 1 to 2 room surgery days. Whatever your need is, we are motivated to be a resource and parter to help you achieve the growth you are looking for.

It’s a goal of ours to be the best Mobile Cataract Service provider in the US. The above 10 examples are intentional ways we have developed to be become just that. Still on the fence? Read through our reviews and see what our long-time partners have to say about what it’s like to work with us.

Whether you are looking to outsource for the first time, or are unhappy with your current cataract service, Surgical Direct makes the transition painless and beneficial for your practice and OR team.

CMS Proposes Another 6% Medicare Cut for Ophthalmology

On August 3rd, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed another reimbursement cut for certain specialties…Ophthalmology was among the specialties listed with a proposed 6% cut. This is in addition to the proposed 15% cut that was implemented early 2020 for the specialty.

As if Ophthalmologists didn’t already have enough hurdles in 2020 (adhering to pandemic related guidelines for offices, continuing to provide quality care, and keeping offices open and staffed), having more revenue taken away is hard to take.

If you are an ophthalmologist…

Have you considered Satellite Surgery?

Surgical Direct provides a way for your practice to increase in satellite surgical locations with the least amount of friction possible. Our Mobile Cataract Service allows you to have a familiar operating experience, no matter where you are operating, with the same equipment, supplies, and trusted technicians that pay extra attention to the details of your day; case supplies, lenses, and equipment needs.

Expanding satellite surgery locations allows your practice to expand its reach into markets that your office can’t physically service, creating opportunities for new revenue streams without the expense of opening a new office.

So how does Surgical Direct help make this seamless?

1) OD Referral Network

Tap into our OD referral network and start building relationships with referring ODs in your satellite areas. Many of our surgeons come to us, asking for opportunities to satellite. We take care of all the legwork and get our surgeons connected with referral sources. Often, this is the biggest hurdle. SDI has you covered.

2) Hospital / ASC Prep + Setup

Similar to our referral program, we also have a vast network of surgical facility connections. If you have an interest in satellite locations, we’ll begin reaching out to OR administrators in the area, taking care of all the admin details needed to get surgery started.

3) Full OR Out-fitting for Cataracts (1 or 2 rooms)

Once we have the referral sources and the OR is ready to get started, we outfit the OR with your desired equipment selections. This includes the latest reliable phaco systems, ophthalmic microscopes, ample phaco handpiece trays, and Instrument trays needed for the day.

4) Case Supply Management

Along with equipment, we bring surgeon-selected customized supply lists for all your case supplies (minus drugs). If you operate with us elsewhere, we’ll bring the exact same supplies, bringing familiarity to a new environment.

5) Lens Supply Management

There are so many details in getting started in a new surgical location, and lenses is one of the biggest details in a case that needs to handled with precision. In our lens management program, we work directly with your office for lens picks for the day. Every surgery visit, we’ll bring all your lens picks (primary, secondary, premium, AC) with backups. Need a last minute diopter change? We also bring full consignments of your primary lens pick to cover those last minute calculation changes.

6) Access to Yag & SLT Lasers

We provide the ability to add-on YAG & SLT lasers to your surgery day. This helps many of our surgeons out so they can just make one trip and take care of everyone’s needs.

These 6 benefits of satellite services with Surgical Direct just scratch the surface. The first step is to get in touch with us and begin the conversation of your interest in satellite surgery and we will take it from there.

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!
