Although ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are becoming more commonplace as a site of care, not every service is a smart ASC investment. To understand where to invest for the future, health care leaders need a clear view into the outlook for ASC services.
This report provides leaders with national, ASC-specific data on 27 services of interest, including how much these services have already shifted to the ASC, and how much ASC growth they may or may not see in the future.
Overall, based on the data, we were able to place services into one of four categories – volume drivers, differentiators, riskier additions, or future contenders. This framework, outlined on pg. 8, can aid leaders in prioritizing ASC service investments and ensuring investments align with their goals.
