Orthopedic and multispecialty surgery centers are increasingly adding high acuity cases like total joint replacements to their current case mix. How will your hospital deal with this new competition and how can you learn from the best practices of outpatient environments?

Gabrielle White, RN, CASC, will cover:
- Why they do total hip arthroplasty in their ASC
- How they select the right patients
- How they prepared their center for total hip surgery
- Pre-op and post-op care of the patient
- Quality and satisfaction scores over the years
