New surgical technologies reshape hospital strategies.

Abstract

New technologies are rapidly transforming hospital surgery, shifting a majority of procedures to outpatient settings and cutting stays for inpatients. This shift is forcing hospitals to re-evaluate physician privileging, surgical staffing and scheduling, facility planning and strategic planning. Meanwhile, the Health Care Financing Administration's efforts to reform Medicare's payment system for outpatient surgery and other ambulatory procedures is on a slower track.
