Ambulatory surgery centers have been hugely popular for hosting cataract surgery in recent years (about 70 to 80% of all cataracts in the US) due to convenience, efficiency, and flexibility when compared to hospitals or large medical centers. Now that we are in 2021, there are even more benefits to moving cataracts to an ASC due to the changing landscape of COVID-19.
Moving your cataract surgery to an ASC is a win-win-win; for patients, for healthcare, and for surgeons. New protocols and systems put in place due to the pandemic have slowed hospitals down with their ability to provide efficient surgical services, and we have seen an even bigger push in the ophthalmology world to move cases from hospitals to ASCs.
Why ASC Cataract Surgery with Surgical Direct is a match made in heaven.
Surgical Direct’s Mobile Cataract Services are designed for surgical centers and surgeons to have the opportunity to be more efficient and flexible with no capital expense. We provide all needed equipment and provisions for your cases, brought to the facility for surgery day.
• No Capital Expense
Surgical Direct eliminates the need for an ASC to use their precious capital dollars on ophthalmic surgical equipment. We provide the latest in cataract surgery technology to your facility on an as needed basis. No capital, no preventative maintenance packages, no worries.
• Surgical Efficiency
Surgical Direct’s model is all about efficiency. From start to finish on surgery day, our team is set and ready to assist the OR team as much as needed, making sure the equipment is running smoothly, and the doctor has everything they need. We also help streamline the ASC’s supply chain and reduce POs with vendors by supplying all necessary supplies for the surgery.
Outsourcing with Surgical Direct brings a level of flexibility to your OR that you would not have on your own. We provide the opportunity for surgeons to be flexible with their equipment preferences (eg. trying a new technology). This also allows your facility to take on more surgeons without the worry of what equipment they prefer. Having the option to provide multiple surgeons with their preferences in equipment without spending large amounts of capital is a benefit that should not be overlooked. Plus, since we are a roll-in / roll-out service and most ASC’s are limited on storage space, you don’t have to worry about that either.
We’ve just scratched the surface. ASC Cataract Surgery with Surgical Direct makes sense in so many more ways than we’ve gotten into.
