Why Op Notes?

You spent 5 years training as a doctor and another five years training as a specialist surgeon. You then did a fellowship and further specialised.

You’re one of the most intelligent, highest functioning and most qualified technicians in the entire world. You perform amazing, life altering and life-saving procedures and you do so in state-of-the-art facilities using the most up-to-date, cutting edge tools. When new technologies emerge, you adopt them to provide the best care to your patient.

And then …

You get out a pen and a piece of carbon paper (invented in 1806, popularised in 1868 with the advent of the typewriter) and you write it all down. You are too smart, too skilled and your time is too valuable to be writing paper notes that don’t reflect your work. Aren’t you tired of writing the same post operative orders over and over again?

That’s where Op Notes by Praccelerate comes in.

Digitisation is coming. Op Notes is designed by surgeons, for surgeons and we understand the way you work. You can create customisable templates to write detailed op notes in seconds, and share them with multiple recipients in a way that is compliant with GDPR, HIPAA and the Australian Privacy Act. You can add intra-operative photos and diagrams and do this all from your smart device.

We can create your templates for you, jump on Zoom to get you started or come to theatre and write your first notes for you.
