Lets look at a few common questions...
How much does it cost to use?
OpAlert is completely free to use for Surgeons, Anaesthetists and Assistants. Don't pay a CENT to use all the features of the OpAlert Platform.
Will a surgeon know that I didn't accept their case?
No, you can review all the cases that are presented to you at any time, and decide who, where and when you would like to work. Once you've accepted the list, you're in, but there is no pressure to do so.
What happens if the start time of a case changes?
Your surgeon will update changes to the list if required. You will receive notifications of this via the app which you may need to reconfirm, so make sure you remain logged in. In some cases, when the change is small, you will receive a notification, but you may not need to reconfirm. Please read each notification carefully.
I don't get any notifications and can't see any cases in the Find Work section
The most common reason for this is that you don't match with any of the criteria for an upcoming case/list. You have the highest chance of seeing cases if you are accredited in multiple hospitals, and tick that you're available all the time. The other reason is that you may not be in the GOLD category for a surgeon. Surgeons can place you into a higher priority category if they want to work with you more often, and this will allow you to receive the notifications before anyone else.
How can my group benefit from using OpAlert?
OpAlert was designed with all types of anaesthetists in mind. From the new anaesthetist who is just starting out, to the one that already has established connections.
OpAlert has a feature that allows each anaesthetist to setup their profile with their anaesthetic group listed. This means that pre-existing relationships between surgeons and anaesthetic groups can be maintained, but allowing surgeons to preference an entire group. Please note, that each individual anaesthetist would need their own account.
Its OpAlert nationwide?
Yes! OpAlert works throughout Australia.
We're sorry New Zealand, but we have no immediate plans to open in NZ.
