NEW YORK, NY – MARCH 31, 2010 – Surgimate, the market leader in surgical management solutions, today announced that Tri Rivers Surgical Associates, Pa., has selected Surgimate ESRM for its 23 providers, including a premier team of eight orthopedic surgeons across three locations in western Pennsylvania.
“As a unique practice with numerous office locations, we needed a way to centralize our records and streamline our processes,” explained Donna Frazier, clinical manager. Tri Rivers searched for a solution to improve efficiency and proficiently manage surgical cases. “Surgimate was the ideal choice, as it will not only synchronize our entire practice, but also increase productivity and performance.”
The surgical schedulers at Tri Rivers are currently swamped with paperwork. “Since we have a number of sub-specialties, we have more than 100 forms in our repository,” said Frazier. “With each surgeon having his own individualized forms, we can have surgery packets that are up to two inches thick!” All of these forms are currently being filled out by hand, making it a time consuming and labor-intensive process. “Surgimate will automate the entire system, streamline our forms, reduce paperwork, and remove the laborious task of filling out forms,” explained Frazier.
Robyn Beckwith, CEO, added, “Surgimate will undoubtedly improve our communication between offices and dramatically reduce the time and money spent on scheduling, thereby allowing us to increase the time we spend with patients.”
With Surgimate ESRM, information about surgeries is accessible to anyone in the practice, schedules are synchronized, surgery status is easily tracked and modifications are effortless. “Surgimate will eliminate the problem of human error,” said Frazier. “With electronic checklists and reporting capabilities, we will be able to monitor exactly what needs to be done at any stage of the surgery scheduling process.”
“We are confident that the Tri Rivers group will take full advantage of the benefits Surgimate has to offer,” said Rebecca Brygel of Surgimate, “And we are delighted to have them on board.”
“We’re all very excited about Surgimate,” added Frazier. “We can’t wait to get started!”
