ASC Strategies for the Foreseeable Future: National Landscape as Viewed Through the ASC Prism Brent W. Lambert, MD, FACS Principal and Founder Luke M. Lambert, MBA, CFA, CASC Chief Executive Officer Ambulatory Surgical Centers of America
The ASC industry is no longer growing. We will see as many closing ASCs this year as new openings.
The pool of surgeons is not growing, but rather contracting as a function of the population.
Maturation of ASCs where there are inadequate or no evergreen provisions in the documents.
Consolidation of payers.
Elimination of OON.
Private equity fervor for the ASC industry declining.
Minority model gaining acceptance with private equity investors.
ASC industry is weak politically vis-a-vis the hospital industry. This is changing with the ASC Association Advocacy Committee, comprised of corporate industry leaders and the ASC Association.
The Squeeze is On Now reaping the effects of dramatic cost inflation. Reimbursement has been flat or down over the course of many years for most centers. Large numbers of centers are not delivering positive returns.
Capital Driven Growth Will Disappoint Capital is relatively abundant compared to good management. Companies and capital providers that ignore accounting presentation in favor of business logic will prevail, others are handicapped. Good operators dont need capital.
Keys to Future Success: Efficiency Schedule consolidation delivers good old fashioned labor productivity and margin improvement. Surgeon preference drives supply cost. With financial returns threatened surgeons willing to make hard decisions.
Payer Contracting Accept what youre offered and youll struggle financially. Surgeon direction of surgical venue key to negotiating success. Hospital partnerships can enable centers to maintain profits while going in network.
Physician Recruitment Dwindling numbers of available physicians – musical chairs. Its becoming uncommon to find physicians that arent bound by non- competitive covenants. Hospital employment is a significant limiting trend.
Minority Model will Continue to Deliver Superior Results Level of surgeon participation impacts: schedule, supply costs, and recruitment. Accounting driven business models compete with one arm tied behind their back. Corporate partners do deliver value with expertise and assistance As in the past, there will be many more happy minority model investors than majority.
