Medicine has advanced. We believe communication should too.
OpComm was founded in June 2016 by a group of Surgical Residents in St. Louis, Missouri, who observed a multitude of inefficiencies in perioperative workflow. Over time, it became clear that these issues were due to poor communication among the multiple care providers involved in perioperative care - surgeons, anesthesiologists, nursing staff, and trainees.
Perioperative communication and workflow at its highest level
By simplifying communication during perioperative transitions of care, OpComm removes workflow roadblocks and unites the multidisciplinary surgical team, decreasing OR turnover time, increasing operative productivity, and enhancing patient care.
The current workflow is frustrating because the surgical staff don't know where each other are in the process.
I would welcome a solution like OpComm with open arms.
