Staff-Led Initiative Results in Significant Cost-Savings at Regent ASC

 Joyce Deno Thomas January 02 2014

Anne Roberts, RN, BSN, administrator at Surgery Center of Reno, like most ASC administrators, challenged her staff to improve quality of care; patient, physician and staff satisfaction; and the bottom line.


They responded in a big way, with the creation of the Surgical Tactics and Recognition, or STAR, Committee a group whose mission is to "add value to the facility by providing ongoing services that evaluate clinical practice, promote clinical responsibility and support professional development."


The committee is on the way to accomplish all of its goals, and within five months even identified $95,000 in cost-savings for the center.
