An app called Casetabs is streamlining surgery coordination. The product is currently supporting 1,000 cases per week for multiple subscribing centers since its initial rollout in May.
Casetabs is a mobile and desktop app that creates a simple, central hub for sharing case information and real-time updates. When using the app, each surgery has a unique “case team” that is empowered to access and share important information, which can include schedule changes, case and product status updates, comments, documents, images, and other case details. These case team members often include nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, office staff, technicians, and vendor reps.
At a multi-specialty surgery center in Los Angeles, the surgery center administrator says, “Casetabs really helps with our inter-department communication. Today, our staff, physicians, and vendor reps all use Casetabs to communicate in a unified manner.” Casetabs also drives digital surgery boards that broadcast real-time case information on large LCD displays for both patient and staff viewing. In Denver, a surgery scheduler tells us, “We just replaced our old whiteboards with Casetabs´s 50 inch digital surgery boards placed in pre-op, the OR suite, post-op, and also the waiting room.”
Casetabs has received over USD1.7M in investments from an affiliate of Evolution Capital Management, a global investment firm, and other individual and institutional partners.
