Dallas-based Surgical Notes, an information technology service provider for ambulatory surgery centers, launched a new networking site called Surgery Center Network (SCN) that connects ambulatory service centers (ASCs) to healthcare consumers.
The site allows users to find and compare ASCs. In the future, Surgical Notes President Jeff Blankinship said in a statement that he would like to see the site expanded to include a data quality and performance analysis.
“We have designed SCN to be a high-performance, specialty carve-out network that will educate healthcare consumers on what is an ASC and its benefits,” Blankinship said. “By providing information about the tremendous value of receiving care in an ASC, (Surgery Center Network) will help bring to surgery centers the incremental patient volume they need and desire from private-pay patients, group health third-party administrators, employer groups, and workers’ comp carriers.”
