JACKSON, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Anesthesia Business Consultants, LLC (ABC) is excited to announce the first public demonstration of ePREOP at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Annual Meeting in San Diego held from October 16th through the 20th. ePREOP delivers a revolutionary new software that promises to improve outcomes and save healthcare dollars while securing anesthesia groups’ standing at their contracting facility. With over 13,000 attendees expected at the 2010 ASA Annual Meeting, ABC anticipates the joint launch will allow ePREOP to hit the ground running.
The ASA is the world’s most comprehensive anesthesia-specific educational event, making this the ideal venue for the first public unveiling of the ePREOP Integrated Preoperative Services platform. The exhibits will open on October 16th at 9:00 am. Together in booth number 2025, ABC and ePREOP will be releasing this groundbreaking software to the anesthesia community. Attendees are invited to see live product demonstrations and talk with the creators. ePREOP is providing their patient check-in services at no charge for a limited time. ABC clients and ASA registrants will have first priority. The exhibit hall will close Monday October 18th at 3:00 pm, so attendees are encouraged not to delay.
ePREOP’s web based platform was designed specifically to bridge the gap between the physician office and surgery location. ePREOP integrates with various electronic health records like Google Health, Allscripts, and HealthVault. The software analyzes hundreds of thousands of data points and delivers preoperative clinical guidelines. These recommendations can significantly improve postoperative outcomes, decrease case delays and cancellations, and save money by reducing wasteful spending. ePREOP allows for a seamless transfer of patient data between parties and eliminates duplicate patient interviews. When an existing EHR is not in use, ePREOP provides a stand-alone Preoperative EHR that is accessible from a kiosk, iPad, or home computer. The data is sent directly to the surgical facility along with preoperative testing recommendations and personalized evidence-based patient instructions.
ePREOP's CEO and co-founder, David Bergman, DO, is a practicing anesthesiologist. “Our mission is to enable patients and physicians to achieve the highest quality preoperative care and to improve surgical outcomes. We are excited to have a partner like ABC that services over 8000 providers and has an incredible reputation in the anesthesia community. Partnering with ABC provides us with an opportunity to make a strong and positive impact on preoperative medicine,” says Dr. Bergman.
“One important positive externality of the clinical and cost saving benefits, is the invaluable opportunity to secure our clients’ standing with, and add value to, their institution,” says Tony Mira, President and CEO of ABC. “We are relentlessly searching to discover these opportunities for our clients, and we are excited to announce our partnership with ePREOP.”
