San Diego-based Surglogs, one of the area’s fastest-growing healthcare tech startups, has raised $10.5 million in a Series A funding round.

The company, which digitizes regulatory compliance processes for ambulatory surgery centers and other health care facilities, announced the capital raise on Dec. 2.

“This investment will catapult Surglogs to the top of the healthcare digitization sector,” said Surglogs’ CEO Peter Zajac.

Digital Platform Replaces Paperwork

Surglogs’ easy-to-use digital platform replaces cumbersome regulatory compliance paperwork and automates clinical workflows for greater efficiency, freeing health care professionals to spend more time with patients.

The platform also enables health care facilities to maintain health and safety compliance standards and remain “survey ready” at all times.

OpenOcean led the Series A investment, with Credo Ventures, 8VC and a group of angel investors from previous rounds.

Three Entrepreneurs and a Doctor

Founded by entrepreneurs Peter Zajac, Dominik Metes, Jakub Jasak and plastic surgeon Dr. John Hilinski, Surglogs has grown to serve hundreds of health care facilities in all 50 states and has partnerships with the largest ambulatory surgery centers (ASC) and health systems in the U.S., including United Surgical Partners International and UCHealth.

“We originally started in the ASC vertical but quickly realized our solution is applicable across the health care space and we have seen exponential adoption of our technology in hospitals, dialysis centers, skilled nursing homes, dental facilities and many other health care markets,” said Zajac.

The Series A funding will be used to strengthen the executive team with new leadership hires in sales and product development, expand its flagship Surgical Logs module and actively pursue growth in additional health care markets, such as skilled nursing and long-term care facilities and dialysis centers.

App Saves Time, Money

Surglogs’ digital app replaces time- and labor-intensive handwritten documentation with a digital app that includes accreditation logs, biomedical logs, environment-of-care logs, quality assurance/quality improvement studies, pharmacy logs, life and fire safety logs and additional compliance modules.

Surglogs’ compliance suite securely houses entire databases of logs in a HIPAA compliant encrypted cloud.

The nation’s health systems, hospitals and post-acute care providers collectively spend over $39 billion a year on maintaining regulatory compliance.

Surglogs saves its ASC and hospital clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor and record-keeping costs by streamlining clinical compliance processes.

For example, a provider with 10 ASCs monitored by 20 clinical staff members could potentially save $216,000 and more than 3,000 labor hours annually after switching from pen and paper to the Surglogs digital app.

The Coronado-based company currently has 30 employees – and plans to add to its staff in 2022.
