BALTIMORE, MD – JULY 26, 2010 – Surgimate, the market leader in surgical management solutions today announced that the Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland (OACM) has successfully implemented its new ESRM software. OACM is one of the largest orthopaedic groups in central Maryland and has been providing high quality orthopaedic care to the central Maryland community since 1969.
“We were looking for a solution that would improve our workflow and decrease errors,” explains Stephen Maddock, CEO. “Surgimate was the preferred choice. It is easy to use and adaptable to our processes.”
With ten surgeons, three surgical coordinators, and four hospital locations, OACM book and perform over three hundred surgical cases per month. Prior to Surgimate, the booking process at the OACM was exceedingly labor intensive. All forms and calendars were being completed by hand and manually transferred between departments.
“Surgimate makes the process for booking surgery simpler and facilitates a smooth workflow,” explains Maddock. “Integration with our EMR system has also removed an extra step of work and minimized errors.”
With Surgimate, all processes have now become automated; data is instantaneously transferred between departments with programmed email alerts, and all surgical information is accessible to anyone in the practice with the click of a button.
”Surgimate has totally transformed my day,” said Bernadette Hardesty, head Surgical Coordinator. “I fired off fifteen surgery packets in half an hour instead of it taking half a day like it used to,” she explained.
“The OACM group has experienced a total transformation in their surgical coordination workflow,” says Rebecca Brygel of Surgimate, “Surgimate enables high volume groups like OACM to eliminate the surgical scheduling paper trail – halving the time it takes to book a patient.”
“Surgimate has considerably improved our workflow and processes,” concluded Maddock, “And I’m sure it will only continue to do so.”
