Tackling ever growing ASC costs

The Healthcare reform is pushing healthcare organizations to follow a more quality based reimbursement model vs. quantity based. It’s imperative that being in the business of serving patients, the quality of care carries supreme importance. While every center wants to provide quality services, there are aspects by which quality may sometimes be compromised – increasing patient volume, lack of resources, the time spent behind each patient visit.

Experiment in remote, virtual care – Michigan to Sri Lanka

Last year, I went to Trincomalee on the east coast of Sri Lanka to volunteer at Grace Care Center, a wonderful orphanage and center for elders run by a friend and colleague Naresh Gunaratnam, MD from Ann Arbor, Michigan.
