Ambulatory Surgery Center
Based on the results of a Survey conducted in August of 2009 to all licensed Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC), the decision was made to convert data submissions from the fixed length flat file format to the more flexible XML format.

Some of the advantages of moving to a XML format are:
