Plastic Surgery Practices - SaaS

Goals

To know the number of plastic surgery private practices in the US by revenue and number of employees, as well as, the number of practices currently using a healthcare-specific customer relationship management or software as a service product.

Early Findings

  • According to Statista, there were 7,009 plastic surgeons in the US in 2018. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons - the largest organization of board certified plastic surgeons in the US - reported in 2019 that it had over 8000 board-certified plastic surgeons as members.
  • No data has been published on the number of plastic surgery clinics/private practices in the US. Data published by Ibis World shows that there are 8,148 businesses in the US plastic surgery market. However, this includes aesthetic clinics and medical spas.
  • These businesses have roughly 53,000 employees in total. The US plastic surgery market is reportedly worth $17 billion.
  • The healthcare cloud computing market in North America is worth more than $8.4 billion. By services, this market is categorized into software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
  • The software segment makes up a significant portion of this market and is forecast to see substantial growth in the future.
  • Based on reviews, some of the top plastic surgery SaaS platforms in the US include athenaOne, Kareo Billing, DrChrono EHR, AdvancedEHR, PrognoCIS, EpicCare, Aesthetics Pro Online, and Nextech.

SUMMARY

  • Our initial research revealed that there is little to no information on the number of plastic surgery private practices in the US, let alone a breakdown of this data by revenue and number of employees.
  • There was also no published information on the number of practices currently using a healthcare-specific customer relationship management or software as a service product.
  • However, we were able to provide data on the North American healthcare cloud computing market in general. A good amount of information was also located on the SaaS platforms used by a lot of plastic surgery clinics.
