The know-how consisted of unique techniques, protocols and procedures that were proven to improve patient outcomes at a lower cost. CRA’s consultants’ due diligence included a site visit to catalog and observe the benefits of the applying the know-how and interviewed another ambulatory surgical center that had adopted the know-how.
