The journey from identifying and communicating our needs, to the test or Beta product, to BSPC implementing a fully functional practice management scheduling tool, was very quick, marked by a short learning curve and easy-to-embrace online training for the nurse schedulers and surgeons.
BSPC surgical scheduling tasks were at best cumbersome and at worst a financial drain on our small surgical group.
In fact, I dealt personally with Allen Kent, the CEO, over a period of weeks to make sure their technology was right for BSPC.
BSPC adopted WebScheduler Surgical Group Scheduler (SGS-35) from WebScheduler LLC in Lafayette, Calif.
The initial implementation was launched in August 2002, and within a month, BSPC was using the SGS-35 Calendar component exclusively.
The normal licensing fee, depending on the size of the practice, ranges from $500 to $1,500, but was reduced for BSPC since it was the first to use the WebScheduler technology in the Surgical Group Scheduler configuration.
