Health care software-as-a-service company ORHub, Inc. (OTC: ORHB) today announced that it is expanding its existing cloud-based platform and has scheduled, for mid to late Q2, pilot tests of its beta module for sterilization processing in the operating room. Notably, the company has identified a significant opportunity to improve data flow management for the sterilization of implant trays, addressing rising demand being driven by the growing volume of surgeries performed in the U.S. “The perioperative department using our ‘Operating Room Hub’ has engaged to save even more time and reduce costs by addressing non-value added activities in the Sterile Processing Department,” Wesley Mitchell, ORHub’s chief technology officer, stated in the news release. “Our customers are key factors in our ability to help identify user needs and drive value-based opportunities in the $3 trillion health care market. This module shows the robustness of our user-centered design and the focus we have on value creation for our customers.” While previous processes required sterilization data to be manually generated or siloed in multiple distribution streams, ORHub’s latest module comes complete with a data network overlay that links valuable information across multiple access points, giving care providers and sales reps the means to save time and money while improving patient care.

About ORHub, Inc.
ORHub is a cloud-based software platform focused on delivering value-based medicine in surgical care. The company enables all parties involved in surgical care to work together to organize, deliver, measure and reimburse in a single uniform process. This allows for significant decreases in cost and improvement in outcomes by eliminating inefficiencies, duplication of effort, and errors and omissions that result from siloed processes in software and poor handoffs from one part of the care process to another. The need for ORHub is clear. Health care comprises more than 17% of US GDP at over $3 trillion dollars per year. With costs rising every year due to an aging population and more expensive treatments, providers are under severe pressure to become more efficient and reduce costs from payers who are aggressively reducing reimbursements and finally moving away from fee-for-service and toward performance-based reimbursement. ORHub enables providers to thrive in this new environment by addressing the single largest segment of health care, which is surgical care. ORHub replaces numerous legacy systems with a 360 degree system that is focused on tracking cost from diagnosis to discharge centered on treating a patient for a specific condition. ORHub has offices at Phoenix, Arizona; Newport Beach, California; and Bellevue, Washington. For more information, visit www.ORHub.com.
