Meet the Team
Here at OpAlert, we believe in industry experience. This is why our dedicated team consists of Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Surgical Assistants and Admin staff. OpAlert was created from the ground up, with our focus on improving the user experience for all members.
Through its simplicity of use, OpAlert’s design ensures a seamless journey. Starting with the upload of a case/list by the surgeon, or their admin staff, through to acceptance of the list by Anaesthetists and Surgical Assistants, the user’s experience is always of highest priority.
With the assistance of our experienced board, we have created a fantastic platform. We are always looking to improve our product, and since our inception, we have implemented many great ideas from our membership.
Time to now meet our founding managing directors, who helped create OpAlert!
