QUAPI Concepts in a COVID-19 World

Our world has been seriously disrupted by COVID-19, and no one is immune from this. It has affected our health, finances, mental stability, just to mention a few things. We’ve had to adjust to a different and increasingly onerous list of infection control practices which have affected our ASC efficiency.

Have you learned from COVID-19? Have you made any improvements based on the changes you’ve made? Did you study the improvements?

This webinar will walk you through a QAPI project using the AAAHC 10-step program. The goal is to provide better patient care, so the presentation will demonstrate how to achieve this goal. It will also include a list of QI studies to give centers ideas of processes they could examine to achieve increased quality.

Key Steps and Considerations for Achieving Success with Surgery Migration to ASCs

Attendees will learn about case migration, payer trends, implications of the regulatory environment, and strategic and financial considerations that may influence ASCs in California. The panel of speakers will discuss the types of services that present opportunities for ASCs; how those services are being affected by the current environment, technology, and patient and payer preferences; and how COVID-19 is changing the equation. Additionally, the speakers will touch on the importance of understanding how these cases will be reimbursed and explore approaches to working with payers to ensure adequate reimbursement for new services.

In-Depth Virtual Series

These sessions delve deeper into Finance,
Infection Prevention and Total Joints.

Each session will be held LIVE for interaction with speakers and peers and also recorded for on-demand access, with paid registration.

*Due to the amount of information shared, these sessions will be between 4-5 hours.  We encourage you to find a quiet and comfortable environment to maximize your learning experience.  We’ve made sure to incorporate numerous breaks to allow for stretching, networking and touching base with ASC operations.  


As we move into the closing months of 2020, CASA is offering 3 in-depth virtual programs to provide ASCs with detailed information to assist them in planning and meeting the demands of the future. 

ASCs have been quick to respond to COVID-19, altering their protocols and assuring patient safety.  Although many are still feeling the impact of delayed surgical procedures and the new demands placed upon their daily operations, it is imperative that ASCs look to the future. 

Opportunities abound for the surgery center industry, and with the right planning and attention to crucial areas, your ASC can be poised to be prepared and succeed.  This is a unique opportunity to get your staff involved in the process.  These sessions will be delivered live with the opportunity to network.  In addition, they will be recorded for on-demand access for paid registrants.

The CASA member discount will be applied to non-CA registrants who are members of their state association (proof of membership required).
