BSM to Present in Own Backyard at ASCRS•ASOA

While members of the BSM team have traveled far and wide to attend the ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting, this year’s locale — San Diego — is particularly close to our heart.

Sunny San Diego is home base for Progressive Surgical Solutions, a division of BSM Consulting that specializes in the development and management of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). With the meeting conveniently in their backyard, several Progressive team members will be in attendance — and they won’t be alone.

More than 10 additional BSM consultants will also be present at the May 3-7 meeting held in the San Diego Convention Center, bringing their expertise in various areas of practice management, including operations, leadership and strategic management, finance, compliance, and billing and coding.

You can find all our attending team members at either BSM Booth #2306 or at the podium sharing their specialized knowledge. In chronological order, below are several informative BSM presentations and sessions we think you might enjoy sitting in on.
