Meeting Canadian Surgeons

Meeting Canadian Surgeons

Our team has just returned from the 2018 National Capital General Surgery Symposium and we are pleased to see that Canadian surgeons were thrilled with the idea of modernizing their scheduling management and creation processes. 

Surgeons Become Technological Ambassadors

Some of the 1,000 Canadian surgeons who are already using our solution took the time to come and see us, which has led to some very enlightening discussions. For example, one of these physicians told us that, after changing hospitals, he introduced the Petal Scheduling solution to his new colleagues, who adopted it in no time. We’re always happy to meet such ambassadors!

Speaking of which, we would like to thank all our physician users, who are specialized in cardiac, plastic, thoracic, vascular and general surgery, that continue to offer referrals to our solutions. Thanks to you, as of today, over 80 surgeon groups are optimizing the creation and management of their schedules with our technology
