During “Collections and the Dissatisfied Patient,” Scott Schoeffel, senior attorney at Theodora Oringher PC, will go over best practices for avoiding legal and financial risks when collecting from a dissatisfied patient. He will discuss the warning signs of risk, how to determine when and if a patient balance should be written off and how to avoid admitting fault while keeping the patient happy. This webinar will take place on Tuesday, February 11, at 1:00 pm ET.

Jho Outlaw, senior vice president of revenue cycle services at Surgical Information Systems, will lead “Managing, Measuring and Motivating Remote Business Office Staff” on Tuesday, February 25, at 1:00 pm ET.

February 12, 2020, marks 50 years since the first ASC provided surgery to its first patients. This year, as we celebrate 50 Years of ASCs, ASCA sent all ASCs that renewed their ASCA membership a poster. The poster describes the growth of ASCs in the last 50 years and some of the many ways ASCs have promoted patient safety and high-quality care while helping to lead the evolution of outpatient surgery during this time. We encourage you to hang the poster in your ASC and share the good news about ASCs with your staff and the physicians, patients and families that visit your facility.
