Acumed Launches the ASCent Program for Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Acumed introduced ASCent™, a customizable program designed to provide Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) with clinical value and pricing transparency.

ASCent offers Acumed’s portfolio of medical devices for simple to complex injuries for the outpatient setting, providing surgeons with numerous options to meet in situ challenges while optimizing patient outcomes. ASCent provides flexible pricing and billing structures to meet case needs and assist ASCs in complying with payor requirements, including fixed-price models.

The program also may aid in procedure collections, since implant costs are often variable, which prevents accurate price estimates.

Acumed’s portfolio includes surgical trays covering a broad range of case needs, along with cost-effective "Essential" sets that minimize storage requirements. Acumed's loaner bank sets can be shipped within 24 hours’ notice for O.R. days working at maximum capacity.

Sharon Wolfington, Acumed’s President and CEO said, “This program features Acumed’s comprehensive extremity fixation portfolio of medical devices at fixed procedure prices. Choice is at the heart of this program, giving surgeons clinical options with clear pricing transparency.”
