You won't believe all the extra time you'll have on your hands when you let patients register for their surgeries online. Those countless hours your staff spends making pre-op phone calls, compiling medical histories and pushing piles of paper? You can reclaim them and put them to better use. Since we armed our 2 busy orthopedic surgery centers with pre-op screening software about a year ago, we've saved more than $40,000 in nurse staffing hours and shaved 1.5 FTEs off the nursing payroll. And our patients are more satisfied than ever with our ultra-efficient pre-admission process. Read on to find out if online registration is right for you.
