Why APM Solutions?
APM Solutions was forged through real life experience and the daily pressures of managing a large multi-site anesthesia practice with hundreds of providers.
Unsatisfied with the cumbersome functionality and cost of stand alone off-the-shelf software solutions, we took the bold step of creating an integrated enterprise management solution designed to service the needs of practice managers, clinicians, hospital administration and credentialing specialists. With great intent and forethought, our holistic, internal and external user-focused application for scheduling, credentialing, CRM, communications, budgeting, and reporting is designed to meet the needs of multiple stakeholders in multiple sites of service in real time.
Paul W. Santoro
CEO & Founder
Paul began his career in anesthesia practice management in 1988 when four years out of training he was put in charge of day-to-day operations of a large Level One trauma center in Detroit. Influenced greatly by the just-in-time inventory management philosophy of the automotive industry at that time, there were many lessons learned regarding the flow of necessary and specialized resources to the right place at the right time. In 1993, Paul founded Anesthesia Staffing Consultants and was wholly unsatisfied with the difficulty in integrating existing off the shelf functionality in a 30,000 foot multi-site view necessary for executives while maintaining the necessary granularity for front line managers, he led the charge to create APM Solutions, the first scheduling, credentialing, communications, payroll and business analytics platform of its kind. While APM has its roots in the anesthesia practice management space, it’s customizability serves any business which deploys specialized resources over multiple sites of service in varying geographies. As a serial entrepreneur, Paul is always on the lookout for innovative solutions and operational efficiency.
