We started Butterfly Systems to revolutionise the process for managing operating theatres. Our beautiful and modern cloud-based operating theatre management software connects various clinicians and hospital management seamlessly. Butterfly Apps digitise surgeons' preference cards; for perioperative service managers, ANUMs, setup and CSSD teams, we help to reduce time spent on non-clinical tasks in the operating theatre and streamline the collaborative processes between operating theatres and CSSD. For hospital executives, finance, revenue and procurement, Butterfly Apps provides accurate surgery case costing, self-funded quotations, prostheses tracking and performance benchmarking. We’re honoured to be assisting hundreds of operating theatres to transform the way they work every day.

Founded in 2014 in Sydney, Australia, Butterfly Systems is one of the fastest-growing healthcare enterprise software companies globally – helping teams in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and the UK to revamp their operating theatre workflows. The Australian Federal Government awarded Butterfly Systems with a maximum Commercialisation Grant in 2015.

We want to help millions of clinicians and hospital administrators to flourish and provide the best possible patient care with better tools, accurate information and more fruitful collaborations. Like all great innovations, we can’t do it by ourselves: we work closely with our hospitals, partners, and other friends to push innovation forward, turning Butterfly Apps into the hospital operational intelligence platform for the world.

Designed to fit seamlessly into your existing patient experience, Personify Care is an easy-to-use mobile platform that lets hospital staff convert their existing clinical and administrative protocols into digital patient pathways.

Patients are automatically assigned to the pathway that’s relevant to their procedure and risk profile. They then receive a mobile checklist of actions to take, things they need to know, and digital forms and assessments they need to complete prior to their admission or post-discharge.

The platform improves the patient experience by providing timely patient information, education and follow up. It also enables healthcare organisations to streamline their pre-admission and post-discharge processes, facilitates the early detection of risks and extends the capacity of clinical teams.
