AMSURG is a healthcare company with two business units that operate across the United States. Its Ambulatory Services Division acquires, develops, and operates ambulatory surgery centers, or ASCs, in partnership with physician practice groups. The ASCs can provide greater convenience for patients and more scheduling flexibility and faster turnaround time between cases for physicians.
AMSURG also has a Physician Services division that provides outsourced services in multiple specialties, including anesthesia, emergency medicine, and radiology.
AMSURG has a large presence nationwide. It has more than 250 ASCs in 34 states and provides physician services in 24 states, employing more than 2,800 physicians and other healthcare professionals. This vast network of healthcare facilities and practitioners generates an immense amount of financial documentation, particularly at the end of each month.
The methods that the company used in the past for backing up its accounting documents were outdated and inefficient.
