TelePREOP Spotlights Centralized Nursing and Telemedicine


Perioperative Home model has been discussed throughout the healthcare industry but rarely implemented due to the high cost to build an efficient model which exceeds the available resources. This is no longer the case with the debut of TelePREOP, whose platform is an immediately-implementable solution that makes the concept of the Perioperative Home a reality.


"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 percent of their patients’ prior to surgery."

TelePREOP ‘s centralized nursing surgical screening service, which utilizes telemedicine, offers a way for nurses to remotely prescreen surgical patients using leading edge software. This ensures accuracy and enables rapid response and significant savings.

"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."
