Program Synopsis:

The program focuses on the business of ASCs in the current environment to help OOSS members take their ASC performance to the next level. We will share the society's strategic priorities for 2023 to 2026 derived from the members and industry survey conducted, and the work of the Board of Directors at its triennial strategic planning retreat. We will discuss how you informed and influenced the future of OOSS and the ophthalmic ASC industry with your participation in the survey.

We will discuss the consolidation of the industry with Andrew Maller, Principal of BSM Consulting and a panel of physicians who will share their first-hand experience with their ownership models: physician-owned, management company partnership and private equity ownership. We will zero in on current reimbursement issues with expert, Kevin Corcoran. We will bring the OOSS’ 40th anniversary year to a close with a pledge to the future interests of ophthalmic ASCs and the patients we serve.
