TelePREOP—Centralized Nursing to Revolutionize the Perioperative Home

TelePREOP, LLC announces today that it is launching its centralized nursing surgical screening service, entitled TelePREOP. The increasing cost of delivering healthcare has driven the need for sophisticated and innovative solutions that are able to balance the competing demands of patient care, financial burden, and efficiency. TelePREOP fills that void by utilizing telemedicine, offering a way for nurses to remotely prescreen surgical patients using leading edge software, ensuring accuracy, enabling rapid response and resulting in significant savings.

The Perioperative Home model is one that is widely discussed but rarely implemented. The cost to build a successful model which can effectively transfer data between all healthcare settings typically outstrips available resources for a hospital and without true guidance, it is doomed to fail. The TelePREOP platform is an immediately-implementable solution that makes the concept of the Perioperative Home a reality.

There is no need for facilities to purchase software. All services are provided by TelePREOP from a centralized screening service location to streamline the preoperative workflows for hospitals, surgery centers, and office-based anesthesia.

“The combination of this technology along with the expertise of our nurses makes the TelePREOP platform one that is unparalleled in the United States,” said Tony Mira, CEO of TelePREOP. “Only now are we at a point where we can offer this answer to the Perioperative Home model to reduce the financial burden to the various health systems while increasing efficiency and productivity. Ultimately, the patients have a better experience with the facilities and practitioners they encounter as we work to interview 100% of their patients prior to surgery.”

TelePREOP combines the benefits of telemedicine with the technology of preoperative screening. ePREOP, the exclusive technology partner of TelePREOP, was chosen for its history of expertise in the perioperative areas, as well as its sophistication in streamlining the clinical workflow.

Dr. David Bergman, CEO of ePREOP comments, "We have been fortunate to partner with some of the largest healthcare companies in the country. This has helped us deliver services built around improving outcomes and decreasing costs. We are honored to be selected as the exclusive technology provider of TelePREOP and are excited to be part of this transformative solution. Ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals can quickly realize the full benefits of our platform through TelePREOP. It is compelling for executives that they can now do so with little upfront resources and an immediate ROI."

“Perioperative Management Services is pleased to be partnering with TelePREOP on this initiative,” remarks Dr. Stan Plavin, CEO of Perioperative Management Services from Atlanta, Georgia. “Our practices encompass a wide range of anesthesia delivery sites. Each facility and system in which we work has varying degrees of infrastructure. With the use of TelePREOP as a backbone, we now can enhance and improve the delivery of patient care, outcomes and data procurement as well as improve the cost effectiveness of the full perioperative process.”

“TelePREOP is the future of medicine and we are proud to be a partner with TelePREOP to serve our clients,” remarks Dr. Shawn DeRemer, CEO of Anesthesia Associates Northwest. “Our patients will be screened more efficiently to ultimately provide increased value to the hospitals and improved quality and satisfaction numbers from our patients. We have been pursuing a cost effective workflow to decrease our case cancellations and delays while discretely capturing all the patient’s histories and medical information. TelePREOP was the answer.”

TelePREOP is a model to emulate across all surgical or procedural institutions. “The Perioperative Home is at the forefront of anesthesia, surgery and facilities as clinical delivery institutions look to provide increased service to their patients while reducing the financial obligations,” comments Bryan Sullivan, Chief Information Officer at TelePREOP. “Our platform is the balanced combination of service and technology to answer a process problem that has plagued clinical environments. TelePREOP reduces costs where appropriate and applies strategic solutions to all providers in the surgical setting.”
