ASC Consulting

Maria Todd  brings extensive experience to your Ambulatory Surgery Center (“ASC”). Maria has worked at the forefront of the ambulatory surgery industry in the USA and abroad and brings hands-on direct work experience for the strategic, financial, and operational challenges facing today’s ASCs.

She brings ASC administrators and their surgeon owner operators the specialized knowledge and expertise in their most pressing challenges and pathways to assist with innovative and easily sustainable strategies that grow revenues and volumes.

Maria is a believer in measurable results. She starts with quantitative measurements and KPIs that identify baseline where she starts working with you, interim goals and objectives and long-term and end of project achievement. Her goals are two-fold: Complete your project with success and move on to the next challenge. She's not there to park on-site and generate travel expenses and maximize billable hours in endless meetings or to replace your staff. The mark of a seasoned consulting expert is that she's pleased to discuss cost-fixed, maximum price engagements if you prefer that to hourly-rate consulting.

Maria provides program assistance and implementation support for the services below:

  • organizational redesign and infrastructure operations
  • clinical and administrative quality management
  • identifying cost-saving opportunities
  • revenue management troubleshooting and A/R reduction
  • assessment of financing options for self pay and high deductible patients
  • partnerships with attorneys (work comp and MVA) and legal cases
  • negotiating labor agreements
  • cost containment and revenue optimization in the perioperative setting
  • sterile processing department cost and preference card assessments to drive down cost per case while increasing margins on negotiated rates

  • cash pay surgery program development and marketing
  • price transparency and bundled price integrity and marketing
  • implementation and promotion of new technologies and treatment options (robotics, lo/no opioid, laser, etc.)
  • Medicare knee replacement surgery in the ASC setting
  • third-party payor contract analysis & negotiation
  • direct contracts with employers and unions
  • mentoring of new managers
  • as a former OR nurse, Maria is equally effective helping single-room physician-based and multispecialty joint venture ASCs
  • brings a “can do” attitude instead of a “cookie-cutter” prescription to  your ASC
  • regulatory compliant social marketing and engagement campaigns to boost brand image and reputation
