Top Medical Equipment For Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Equipping Your ASC for Success: Must-Have Medical Equipment

The Operating Room:

In order to perform surgeries, the operating room must be equipped with certain essential medical equipment. One of the most important items is the operating table, which should be adjustable and have the ability to support the patient throughout the surgery. Another vital piece of equipment is the anesthesia machine, which delivers a combination of potent drugs and gases to the patient during the procedure. Finally, the operating room should also have a variety of surgical instruments, including powered surgical equipment, scalpels, forceps, clamps, and scissors.

Mobility and Transportation:

In ambulatory surgery centers, patients typically receive same-day surgery and do not require hospitalization. As a result, mobility and transportation equipment are important to ensure patients can be safely transported throughout the facility. The most important piece of mobility equipment is the patient lift, which assists in lifting and transferring patients to and from the operating table. Additionally, ambulatory surgery centers should also have wheelchairs and stretchers available to facilitate the movement of patients throughout the facility.

Diagnostic and Testing Equipment:

In order to accurately diagnose and treat patients, ambulatory surgery centers must have a variety of diagnostic and testing equipment available. One of the most important pieces of equipment is the ultrasound machine, which allows healthcare providers to visualize organs and tissues within the body. Additionally, ambulatory surgery centers should have a blood pressure monitor, electrocardiogram (ECG) machine for monitoring heart function, and pulse oximeter for measuring oxygen levels in the blood.

Internet of Medical Things (IoT): The Vast Impact Inside & Outside of Hospital Walls


A patient’s heart monitor sends an alert to a physician that her arrhythmia is back.

A senior forgets to take their prescribed medication on time, and a devices helps remind them to take it and also documents what time they took it.

 A man’s implanted device monitors blood glucose symptoms and delivers a corrective insulin stimulus, alerting the physician simultaneously.

All of these examples are the epitome of the “Internet of Medical Things” (IoMT). The Internet of Medical Things refers to an ecosystem of medical devices and applications that collect data that is then provided to healthcare IT systems through online computer networks. Wi-Fi enabled devices are a catalyst for machines to communicate and link to cloud platforms for data storage. The “Internet of Things” (IoT) has influenced several industries, and the healthcare field is no exception. The medical industry across the board has gradually started to enter the integrated world of IoT.

A Look Inside the Expanding Landscape of HAIs



Health care-associated infections (HAIs) are infections that patients acquire while receiving treatment for medical or surgical conditions, and many HAIs are preventable. HAIs can occur in a number of health care facilities, such as acute care hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, outpatient care e.g. physicians’ offices and clinics, dialysis treatment facilities, and long-term care facilities e.g. rehabilitation centers and nursing homes. HAIs can be caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses, or other pathogens.

Outpatient is the Future of Total Joint Replacement

Ambulatory Surgery Centers are Paving the Way

Outpatient is the Future of Total Joint Replacement


Elective outpatient hip and knee replacements increased by 47 percent from 2012 to 2015, according to a study by Sg2. This insight is an early indicator that total joint replacements (TJR) are becoming more common in the Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) setting as a higher number of surgeons become experts on minimally invasive technology and pain management techniques for outpatient procedures.

Total joint surgeries moving toward outpatient can also be attributed to:

  • The transition to value-based care since ASCs are a high quality, low cost option
  • Insurance companies are more willing to cover outpatient TJRs
  • Studies show that patients who fit a particular criteria can achieve desired results in the outpatient setting

In this month’s newsletter, we’re peeling back the TJR outpatient trends, cost analysis, and how ASCs are taking a driver’s seat in the total joint arena.

ASCs Bring Extra Value in Value-Based Care

Value-Based Care

Value-based healthcare is a delivery model in which providers are compensated based on patient health outcomes. Under value-based care agreements, providers (including hospitals and physicians) are recognized for helping patients improve their health, reduce the ramifications and incidence of chronic disease, and live a healthier lifestyle in an evidence-based process.

Value-based care is different from a traditional fee-for-service (FFS) approach. FFS providers are paid based on the amount of healthcare services they deliver. The “value” in value-based healthcare is derived from measuring health outcomes against the cost of delivering the outcomes.

Streamlining Medical Equipment Processes with a Single Source

Doctor suggesting hospital program to patient

What are the benefits of using a single source vendor for purchasing medical equipment? This seems like an obvious answer for a common question, but the truth is, there is so much more to it than cost savings.

These days more than ever before, the Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) procurement team is under a lot of pressure to provide high quality equipment, within or under budget, while considering the needs (and opinions) of front line medical stakeholders.
