Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein Inc., is helping to amplify the value ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) bring to patients, providers and the health care ecosystem overall.
The company recently featured key learnings and viewpoints from ASC thought leaders, including best practices for infection prevention, recruiting top talent and the benefits of working in an ASC, and building a new ASC from the bottom up. Through its signature social media series, #scheinchats, the discussions covered tools and tactics ASCs can implement to help increase efficiencies while providing quality patient care in the wake of staffing shortages, as well as the continued growth of ASCs and the positive clinical outcomes provided.
Henry Schein Medical brought together its subject matter experts and industry peers to produce insightful conversations, including:
- How to Accelerate Growth in Your Ambulatory Surgery Center featuring Scott Jackson, vice president of surgical solutions at Henry Schein Medical and Mandy Hawkins, president of the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association’s Board of Directors.
- Automating Your ASC for Optimal Infection Prevention featuring Erica Smith, surgical solutions manager at Henry Schein Medical, and Caitlin Stowe, vice president of clinical affairs and medical liaison at ActivePure Medical.
- Setting Up an ASC for Success, featuring four video messages from Bruce Johnstone, director of client services at Apex Design Build, where ASCs can learn how to build an ASC development plan.
“At Henry Schein Medical, through our Surgical Solutions team, we see first-hand the important role that our ambulatory surgery center customers play to provide a good quality of life for staff, and to deliver convenient, cost-efficient solutions to patients,” Jackson said. “The ASC industry has grown significantly since the early 1970s when the first ASC was built, and because of the many benefits they deliver, outpatient centers continue to emerge throughout the United States. Our team remains committed to helping enhance the vital role ASCs play in the health care system, and providing the technology, tools and resources needed to operate successfully.”
