Selling to Surgery Center Customers

Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are a popular setting for many surgery and diagnostic procedures.

For the patient, they offer convenient care, generally with fewer hassles than a hospital visit. For the sales representative, they provide a sales opportunity – many ASCs purchase med-surg supplies at a rate similar to that of a small to mid-sized hospital without much of the bureaucracy that can make hospital selling a time-intensive challenge.

Penetrating the ASC market requires understanding how they work, and what makes them different from other types of healthcare providers. Understanding these unique aspects of ASCs as a whole and learning how to do your homework to understand the needs of a specific facility will help you approach them confidently and effectively, avoid damaging missteps, and position yourself quickly and efficiently for sales success.

This AMS course will help you accelerate your learning curve and sell successfully to ASCs.
