NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 3, 2011 – Surgimate, the market leader in surgical management solutions, announced that The Hand Center of Louisiana has selected Surgimate ESRM to maximize revenue.
The Hand Center, which is located in Metairie, Louisiana, is a leading surgical and therapy center on the Gulf Coast. It comprises four centers of excellence including the Hand Surgical Associates – a two-surgeon practice that specializes in surgery of the forearm, wrist and hand.
“We are a very high-volume practice, but with an integrated solution like Surgimate the task of scheduling surgeries does not seem as daunting,” said Craig Henry, Practice Administrator. “The fact that Surgimate integrates with our EMR, SRSsoft, so seamlessly was a significant factor in our decision to purchase Surgimate.”
Surgimate ESRM will enhance operational efficiency by automating the entire surgical scheduling process, including pre-defined templates that load surgical details in seconds. Additionally, the Surgimate Planner will allow Block Time to be allocated for each surgeon, making the task of identifying open slots in the schedule effortless.
“From a business perspective, the most important thing is to capture the recommendation from the surgeon and turn it into surgery,” added Henry. “With Surgimate’s tracking features, we can ensure that nothing falls through the cracks and patients get on the schedule.”
“In order to know where you are today, you need the data in order to determine where you want to be tomorrow,” said Henry. “That can only come from having a tool like Surgimate that will gather the information and generate it into an intelligible report format.”
“More surgical practices are looking to Surgimate to maximize surgical revenue and improve their operational efficiency,” said Justin Rockman, VP of Sales at Surgimate. “Louisiana Hand Surgical Associates will use Surgimate to transform better information into increased revenue.”
“Our ultimate goal is to have more hands-on time with the patient,” said Henry, “Surgimate will facilitate this as it will not only make us more efficient, but it’s going to save us time.”
