What: A functional narrative is a detailed, written description of a surgery center, used to request approval to construct a new facility. Since this item is essential to gain license approval for a new surgery center, administrators and surgery center leaders must have a thorough grasp of the elements required for a successful document. Here, Amy Mowles, president and CEO of Mowles Medical Practice Management, goes through the essentials.
Why: In some states, a functional narrative is required. But even if it is not, it is always a good idea to have all of the stakeholders for such an important project on the same page, and this is an effective tool to accomplish that.
