More General Surgery Bundles Available with High Performance Providers
High Performance Providers is proud to announce the milestone of assembling over 200 general surgery bundles in Las Vegas. The most common surgery bundles relate to gallbladder removal, hernia repair, appendectomy, breast reconstruction, and mass removals. This noteworthy achievement was challenging as most surgery practices are financially incentivized to perform hospital-based surgery due to the fact that they are owned by the hospital.
As opposed to hospital-based surgeries, High Performance Providers curates a network of the top-performing surgeons who operate in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). Data shows that compared to a hospital setting, ambulatory surgery centers provide significant cost savings, improved health outcome measures, and higher patient satisfaction rates. The higher cost of surgery in a hospital is due primarily to facility fees, making up as much as 85% of the total charges. Ambulatory surgery centers cut down on these fees, saving health plans 30-60%. Fortunately, most planned surgeries can happen in an ambulatory surgery center environment, which is why High Performance Providers contracts with vetted surgeons working in ASCs.
