Medline, HOTB Software Solutions to Streamline Ambulatory Surgery Centers’ Accreditation Process

New software digitizing and simplifying accreditation compliance to launch at Becker’s Annual ASC Meeting

By Medline Newsroom Staff | October 24, 2019

Medline and HOTB Software Solutions today announced an exclusive partnership to assist ambulatory surgery centers (ASC) in managing and navigating accreditation compliance processes using a new Surgical Center Toolbox.

“ASCs face many compliance challenges in their daily operations, but gaining and maintaining accreditation are among the most critical,” says Zach Pocklington, senior vice president of ASC at Medline. “Managing the manual process of accreditation paperwork has been a long standing issue for ASCs. Our new partnership with HOTB delivers a cloud-based platform solution to safely store and manage these critical processes and logs.”

The new Surgical Center Toolbox eliminates manual processes by digitizing policies, procedures and logs, creating a central database and document repository as well as custom workflows with check-ins and operational reminders. The tool, developed by HOTB, simplifies reporting for the four major accrediting bodies.

“Our decades of experience in designing software that leverages best practices combined with Medline’s extensive industry knowledge has enabled us to bring the Surgical Center Toolbox to life,” says Andy Firoved, CEO at HOTB. “Building upon our common core values, our goal is to eliminate barriers for our customers while positioning them to compete in a digital environment that helps them meet their compliance needs.”
