Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) are helping to keep healthcare costs down—reducing the cost of outpatient surgery by over $38 billion per year in the United States by providing a lower cost site of care compared to hospital outpatient departments, according to a new infographic by SourceMed.

The infographic looks at the four ways that ASCs reduce costs.

Today, having completed more than 1,000 bundled episodes for total hip replacements, total knee replacements and hip fractures, Brooks has reduced cost by 19 percent per episode, lowered readmissions to about 15 percent across its 60-day time frame, registered a patient satisfaction level of 94 percent and documented significant functional improvement.

Bundled Payments for Post-Acute Care: Profiting from Alternative Payments and Clinical Redesign examines the four domains of success of Brooks’ Complete Care program supporting the organization’s bundled payment clinical outcomes and financial results.
