Perioperative Care Coordination
Founded in 2008 by physician anesthesiologists, ePreop Inc. was created to improve patient outcomes and decrease costs in the surgical arena. ePreop’s software solutions currently have more than 18,000 users, representing over 1,450 facilities, in over 30 million procedures to date. ePreop offers two software platforms: SurgicalValet™ and AnesthesiaValet™. These modular SaaS solutions are accessed as an integrated extension of nearly every major surgical EHR on the market today. The HIPAA compliant tools can also be used on mobile phones, tablets, or desktops.
ePreop’s SurgicalValet software users have reported significant benefits from the software, including increased CMS reporting compliance, a 47% reduction in readmissions, 5% greater case mix index, less than 1% same-day case cancellations and a 68% reduction in preoperative testing.
“Today marks an important milestone for ePreop,” added David Bergman, CEO and Founder of ePreop. “We are very excited to join the Provation team and are confident that this partnership will enable us to continue to build on our long history of serving physicians with industry-leading solutions. Collectively, we have some of the most passionate professionals in the healthcare IT industry and we are excited to work with the Provation team to develop technology to better serve our healthcare community.”

ePreop has been providing anesthesia quality reporting and perioperative care coordination solutions for more than 10 years and serves more than 18,000 end-users and 1,500 facilities with its SurgicalValet and AnesthesiaValet™ platforms.
