SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Casetabs today announced it has extended its cloud-based surgery coordination application to facilitate anesthesia group schedule sharing and provider assignments. Surgery centers can now send a list of cases they need covered to their anesthesia groups, the groups can assign their providers to cases, and then both the centers and anesthesia groups can receive confirmation of coverage directly through Casetabs.
“Casetabs was created to fundamentally change how surgeries are coordinated by ensuring everyone involved in a case is continuously and instantly on the same page. Today’s announcement builds upon this mission by including anesthesia groups,” said Gavin Fabian, CEO of Casetabs. “Anesthesia groups are critical components of surgery coordination yet, until now, have operated in their own silo. We have broken down the barriers between surgery centers and anesthesia groups to provide seamless surgical coordination and communication from the moment a case is scheduled all the way through discharge.”
Casetabs provides a central hub for all case-related information. Real-time schedule and patient demographic information is pulled from the physician’s office and populated into the Casetabs app. By extending Casetabs to anesthesia groups, surgery centers can easily select a set of cases by OR, physician, or day. These cases are immediately available for the anesthesia group to confirm receipt. As the surgery date approaches, the anesthesia group assigns anesthesiologists into the case(s). If there is a change or an update to a case, the system sends automated alerts to everyone involved, including the anesthesiologist. Casetabs is easily accessible through a laptop or mobile device such as an iPhone or Android.
Casetabs eliminates the need for fragmented communication methods like fax, phone and text messages. On average, Casetabs reduces the number of touch points in a surgery from 25 to 5, minimizing the risk of communication related errors and allowing caretakers to focus more on patients.
