What we do

Our software automates the surgical scheduling process and consolidates the workflow at surgical practices nationwide. Surgimate provides a centralized location for all data surrounding surgeries. This way, any stakeholder can access the information they need at any point in the process – including schedulers, managers and surgeons.

 

Our application replaces the hodgepodge of tools used to run back-office operations. Since 2010, we have helped surgical practices nationwide increase their operational efficiency, reduce wastage, and improve quality of care for patients across all surgical specialties.

Who we Are

We’re a technology company founded eight years ago by health-tech entrepreneur Rebecca Brygel. Our talented team of software engineers, healthcare experts, and data scientists have previously worked at such companies as IBM, Oracle, Cisco, and Verizon.

 

Working closely with managers, schedulers, and surgeons gives us unique insight into the everyday challenges faced by people in the industry. We spend a lot of time on the ground with our clients, even as we continue to expand, because it’s (still) the best way to build trusting partnerships.
