SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Casetabs today announced one million surgeries have been coordinated through its surgery coordination platform. Surgery centers and hospitals across the country are using Casetabs’ web-based surgery coordination application as a central hub for coordinating and communicating real-time case information. Casetabs eliminates data silos and enables everyone involved in a case - physician office staff, hospital and surgery center staff, anesthesiologists and ancillary teams including medical reps, radiology and pathology - to work together seamlessly.
“Casetabs’ surgery coordination platform was officially released in 2016 as a communication tool to bridge medical reps and surgery centers,” said Gavin Fabian, CEO of Casetabs. “Since then, we have evolved case communication in ways that eliminate unnecessary OR delays and cancellations for surgery centers and hospitals, which results in more efficient use of OR space.”
Starting at the physician practice, Casetabs allows scheduling and patient demographic information to be quickly pulled from their EMRs and used to schedule into available OR times at hospitals and surgery centers. Once the case is scheduled, Casetabs serves as a project management platform for each surgery, providing the ability to manage anesthesia assignments, staffing assignments, vendor reps and other resources critical to patient care. All members involved in the case are kept in the loop of any changes or updates to a case through automated text, email and in-app alerts.
Earlier this year the Casetabs application was expanded to include patient engagement capabilities. Integrated patient texting, including pre-op reminders and post-op check-ins, improves the patient experience by providing meaningful engagement throughout the patient’s entire continuum of surgical care. Unlike traditional texting services, Casetabs offers a deeper level of care because it serves as the core hub for all communication around each case. As a result, Casetabs leverages unparalleled data and insights to enable more individualized and valuable engagement with each patient.

Today, over 100 million surgeries are coordinated in the US every year with fragmented chains of emails, text messages, phone calls, and faxes. Casetabs replaces these ineffective and error-prone methods with an intuitive central coordination hub, which delivers real-time case information and updates to facility staff, physician office staff, physicians, anesthesiologists and vendor reps. Casetabs is based in Santa Monica, CA. For more information, visit www.casetabs.com.
