Surgimate is proud to welcome Orthopedic Associates (OA), a 7 surgeon physician-owned practice based in Denver, Colorado. OA was having trouble reporting about canceled surgeries, available block time and other critical data to help the practice run more efficiently. They tried using multiple systems to track and schedule surgeries, and this caused severe errors, such as numerous cases falling between the cracks. OA decided they needed to revamp their scheduling system in a more synchronized manner. They selected Surgimate to be their one centralized location to manage every aspect of their surgery scheduling. With Surgimate, managers will be able to easily access the information they need in order to make better business decisions. It will also give schedulers the ability to identify canceled surgeries and fill empty slots in the surgeons’ block time, making the practice run much more smoothly and productively. Surgimate will launch at OA in the summer of 2018.
Austin Retina Associates, an eight surgeon group in Texas, have signed with Surgimate to automate their surgical scheduling process. Before signing with Surgimate, Austin Retina had dozens of forms that needed to be manually completed for any given surgery. Additionally, there was not enough transparency and communication between departments, leaving room for errors and confusion. But with Surgimate’s form generation tool, practice operations will run much more smoothly and efficiently. The Surgimate platform will significantly reduce booking time per surgery, while the reporting features will give managers the ability to review surgery data and help identify trends. The cloud platform will also enable each department to see the status of each surgery and know what steps need to be taken in order to complete the booking. Austin Retina will be able to manage their booking system more effectively, have clearer communication and provide better service.

Orange County Urology Associates (OCUA) has selected Surgimate to solve their surgical workflow and tracking issues. Up until recently, OCUA, a 10 surgeon urology practice based in Laguna Hills, California, had trouble tracking surgeries scheduled across their 6 locations. Each scheduler had their own scheduling processes, which meant that if one of the schedulers was out of the office or unavailable, other staff and management were left in the dark and unable to identify the status of these cases. This was obviously very problematic and a source of stress in the practice. Orange County Urology Associates searched for a solution that would all access to all schedulers. They went with Surgimate to standardize their workflow across all locations, which will enable any staff member to login and instantly identify the status of a surgical case. Surgimate provides a synchronized platform to keep information updated at all times, making scheduling easy and leaves less room for error.
Surgimate is excited to welcome our first client in Alaska – Ophthalmic Associates of Alaska (OAA) is the latest practice to join. Much of OAA’s scheduling and tracking was performed manually, and this was both inefficient and error-prone. Practice administrators were looking for a more organized system for their surgical scheduling and a way to automate these processes. Surgimate will digitize their tracking, and provide one shared surgical calendar across the practice. OAA is keen to use the reporting features inside Surgimate in order to help provide data to make better informed business decisions. Read more about OAA here.

IGEA, a 5 surgeon neurology group, was also looking to unify their surgical workflow. With Surgimate, they aim to drastically cut scheduling time with the help of the form generation tool. The electronic checklist will enable managers to gain a clearer picture of the practice by tracking surgical statuses and ensuring that authorizations are in place before each surgery. IGEA was delighted with the Outlook API with Surgimate, as this will provide their surgeons with instant access to their surgical schedules and ensure they are all correctly synced and updated. By partnering with Surgimate, IGEA Brain and Spine will have an automated scheduling platform that will allow the practice to operate much more efficiently and provide top quality service to their many patients.
