American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Partners with Anzu to Establish First-Ever Nationwide Collaborative Residency Network

Phoenix, AZ – April 28, 2016 – The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), a world leader in Aesthetic Surgery Education and Anzu®, developers of the AnzuMedical™ Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration PlatformTM, today announced a joint initiative to create a Nationwide Plastic Surgery Collaborative Residency Network. The platform is scheduled to launch in July 2016 and will be a combined effort between ASAPS, Anzu®, and multiple premier plastic surgery resident programs at leading hospitals.

ASAPS is currently utilizing a customized version of the AnzuMedicalTM Knowledge Sharing & Collaboration PlatformTM called RADAR (Readily Available Digital Aesthetic Resource) as an educational tool available to its members. The platform accesses knowledge and provides a host of collaboration capabilities, all designed to improve patient outcomes through information access and sharing between physicians.

“ASAPS is excited to partner with Anzu® and several leading hospitals to create this unique residency collaboration network,” stated Daniel C. Mills, MD, President, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. “The primary mission of our organization is to educate our members. Early on, we recognized that technology must play an integral part in the learning process. The goal of this particular project is to leverage technology to the fullest extent possible and build a network of residency programs that can share their unique arsenals of knowledge with each other for maximum benefit. It’s a unique concept in terms of its mass-collaborative nature that we know will provide a much richer learning experience for all residents in training.”

“We look forward to working with ASAPS and Anzu® to launch this powerful educational resource to our plastic surgery residents,” said Jeffrey M. Kenkel MD, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. “I have seen many knowledge sharing tools and resources over the years. This combines the best functionality of those with insightful and useful features not available anywhere else.”

“Anzu®’s goal is to revolutionize residency training and education by enabling collaborative knowledge sharing between institutions and residents, regardless of whether they come from small or large programs,” said Barry Fernando, MD, CEO of Anzu®. “Most institutions and residency programs exist and operate in siloed environments. We are providing a daily use product for residents that will change how they learn, and ideally lead to better clinical decision making and ultimately better patient outcomes.”

Key Features: ASAPS Nationwide Residency Education & Collaboration Network:

  • An independent Content Management System (CMS) for each residency program.
  • A networking system for all participating programs which will allow collaborative exchange of information between institutions.
  • An HTML-based webpage builder for residents to generate/share multi-media notes for study.
  • A “virtual Journal Club” – a technological version of an established institutional product.
