One Medical Passport is pleased to announce the kick-off of its ASC Leaders Advisory Board. 1MP, the leading provider of surgical care coordination and patient engagement software for outpatient surgery, created this group as a “think tank” to provide feedback from the front lines on ways to make outpatient surgery safer, more cost-effective and more convenient.

When patients are facing the prospect of joint procedures followed by weeks of physical therapy and restrictions, a positive experience at your ASC can dramatically improve their recovery and satisfaction.
Any surgical procedure is a daunting prospect for patients. If it’s the first time a patient is having surgery, it can be frightening as well.

Price transparency is increasingly becoming part of ASCs’ efforts to improve the patient experience. Here’s why it’s so important.
A culture of safety is essential to maintaining consistently high health standards for patients, personnel, and surgeons. While all Ambulatory Surgery Centers strive for safety, having a culture focused on this means taking it a step further. It has to become a seamless feature of every activity and transaction in the ASC. How do you achieve a culture of safety, where safety is more than just a buzz word?
