What we do

We develop software that makes it easier to manage information around surgeries. Our technology gathers data currently scattered across multiple systems and organizes them into a definitive record of the surgical event, which all stakeholders can access.

 

Our application replace the hodgepodge of outdated tools associated with traditional back-office operations. Since 2010, we have helped providers and vendors nationwide increase their operational efficiency, reduced wastage, and improve quality of care for patients across all 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.
