This is precisely what Surgery Exchange brings to the table. In an ambitious bid to proactively automate the current intensive and duplicative manual processes lacking visibility and compliance with hospital rules, policies, and vendor agreements, Surgery Exchange was founded to assist supply chain, clinicians, and hospital support teams in being more efficient. In doing so, the company ensures a smooth process that provides visibility and real-time, accurate, case-level data throughout for all service lines, system-wide. “Our technology automates and optimizes the highly manual implant bill-only procurement and management process, which enables healthcare providers to oversee and control these procedures by increasing visibility into the supply chain,” states Amin Rahme, President and CEO of Surgery Exchange. This first of its kind comprehensive end- to-end provider solution brings together the various stakeholders including hospital clinicians, staff, management, manufacturers, sales representatives into a steady communication chain.
We automate the workflow process and bridge disparate hospital IT systems to provide consistent real-time data to all the stakeholders, establishing their proactive involvement to create consistent best practices for all implant service lines, health system-wide, which ultimately improves hospital’s financial bottom line
Disparate IT systems including financial ERP, electronic health records, and other resources necessary to the case also form a part of this sequence to proactively drive the entire process in accordance with hospital rules, policies, and agreements.
Surgery Exchange offers a comprehensive HIPAA-compliant line of integrated software solutions focused on implant bill- only cases. The company’s solutions electronically synchronize with the surgery scheduling system and inform stakeholders about their cases and any changes or cancellations. In addition to the Surgery Exchange platform that manages planning, case management, and contract compliance, the company provides Surgery Exchange Logistics, which handles hospital-owned and vendor-consigned implant inventory and related instruments to further reduce hospital’s cost and liabilities. This solution provides accurate data about consignments and hospital-owned implant inventory.
Surgery Exchange leads the space of automating the various processes to support surgical implants, including usage reconciliation and payment process. “We constantly identify new challenges faced by hospitals and device manufacturers in this oft-ignored arena and aim to expand the functionality of our solutions to overcome them effectively,” concludes Rahme.
