(Part 2) Animations Pay for Themselves – Alabama Surgeon George Crawford

by birtanpublished on August 25, 2020

I'm originally from Aiken South Carolina but I am now a general surgeon in Anniston Alabama halfway between Atlanta and Birmingham so with without the animation a typical gallbladder visit may take 20 minutes I'm in that 20 minutes five minutes at

The end is spent prompting the patient to answer questions as well as to ask questions so a lot of times they'll come in and are not familiar enough with the gallbladder so they don't even know what questions to ask versus when we use the

Animation because we're utilizing that time that I'm not in the room we take five minutes out of that initial visit but the patient still gets all of their questions answered so what happens is in turn I get about five minutes per

Patient per video every day so if I have two or three gallbladders if I have a colon operation if I have an inguinal hernia operation that saves me about 20-25 minutes which from a Productivity standpoint is an extra patient visit or

I can spend that time with other patients that have more difficult problems that need more when I forget to put the videos on they remind me to put the videos oh because what happens is they now get to walk in

Ask the patient hey did you see the video do you have any questions about the video there used to patients saying no I saw the video I'm good what's the next step versus when the videos are all the

Nurses do spend a lot more time in there answering questions after I leave so they love the videos probably as much if not more than I do you know if you add from a surgical standpoint if you add the amount of money that the video calls

Per year versus the amount of patients that you see because you've become more effective and more efficient I would say the videos probably pay for themselves after about two or three patient visits
