Ambulatory healthcare services describe any healthcare service that does not require a hospital stay. Ambulatory services may include rehab, diagnostic tests, and surgical procedures. Medical professionals may provide these services in a hospital outpatient center or an ambulatory surgery center (ASC).
Ambulatory surgical procedures are an increasingly important aspect of healthcare in the United States. According to Business Wire doctors performed 129 million outpatient procedures in 2018, with expectations for that number to increase to 144 million by 2023.
