AMBULATORY SURGERY: 765 cases per OR per year

Our blog-reading friends at AORN gave me a little challenge — what’s the throughput in ambulatory surgery centers?  How many procedures per OR per year?  After crawling through some sources that I already knew to have data about ambulatory surgery centers — with no luck —  I came across a fascinating benchmarking resource that I did not know about — the Intellimarker.   This resource is based on “a 2010 analysis of over 240 licensed freestanding ASCs.”  And it’s free!  Check it out!
