-- Washington, D.C. Top Surgeon Stats, LLC, a start-up medical data company based in Rockville, MD, announced today at the AAO-HNSF Conference that version 2.0 of their groundbreaking patient feedback and data delivery system will be released on November 5, 2012. This web-based platform is the first system that seamlessly automates the process of sending post-operative patient surveys and organizing and delivering the resulting patient data for doctors in a truly actionable format.
“I believe that if patients have a way of knowing which surgeons are best at doing each procedure then patients could make educated choices and get superior health care. This is what drove me to develop the TopSurgeonStats system,” stated Dr. Michael Siegel, an Otolaryngologist-
Head and Neck surgeon from Maryland and the founder of TopSurgeonStats. “With this system, I can give my pre-operative patients accurate statistics on my surgeries based on reliable feedback from my own practice. This is truly evidence-based medicine right here in the doctor’s office.”
"Patients really appreciate it when I present them with my own data and are even more comfortable proceeding with surgery when they can see how my stats compare to others in the field,” stated Dr. Daniel Deems, MD, PhD, FACS who practices in Sarasota, FL and has been using TopSurgeonStats.com for over a year. “It's definitely helped me improve the quality of the surgical experience for my patients"
The TopSurgeonStats.com web platform is fully HIPPA compliant and is 100% confidential. The process starts when the patient is scheduled. It takes less than a minute to enter the patient and their procedure (by CPT code) into the system. After the procedure has occurred TopSurgeonStats.com automatically delivers detailed surveys to patients and aggregates the data, organizing it into useful charts and graphs for the doctor to view in the privacy of his or her own computer. Doctors can benchmark their results against other anonymous doctors on the system and use the results to improve their techniques and communication with their patients.
“One of our goals was to keep the system honest,” says Dr. Siegel. “Doctors cannot enter procedures that have already occurred and they cannot delete a procedure from the system without the patient and the system administrators being notified. These two features are designed into the fabric of the system and help to make the statistics very reliable.”
