What we do

Our software automates the surgical scheduling process and consolidates the workflow at surgical practices nationwide. Surgimate Practiceprovides 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

Driven by a passionate and dedicated team, we’re on a quest to transform the surgical services industry and improve the surgical experience – both for the surgeon, support staff and most importantly, the patients.

 

We are committed to making a difference and there is plenty of fun and banter along the way. We take care of our people and nurture them to grow and develop professionally, while also ensuring flexibility and that each individual’s needs are met.
