The Aesthetic Neural Network Suite

Meet ANN… The Power In Analytics.

The ANN Suite will revolutionize how you look at your practice…with no extra data entry.

By automatically combining your anonymized data with a network of other Aesthetic Society members, you can gain incredible insight into your past performance, learn how to optimize your pricing, and hyper-target your marketing strategies.

Gain deeper insights into your practice patterns

ANN shows you Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) like the correlation between initial and subsequent procedures, which gives you the Lifetime Value of your patients.

Optimize your purchasing with comparative data

ANN is the only Business Intelligence Tool in our market that lets you access cooperative data from your peers.

Hyper-target your marketing

Seeing your data on ANN helps you make more insightful Evidence-Based Business decisions – when to buy a new product, when to market a new offering, or which service combinations could be most profitable.

ANN by the Numbers

ANN is currently home to more than 150 aesthetic practices, which gives you access to cooperative data from 218 sources - including surgical and medi-spa numbers - $3.5B in gross charges, 3.5M procedures, and 731K patients. These numbers grow every day!

ANN connects directly to your existing Practice Management system – either through a piece of hardware called the bundleBOX (or “Bobby”) for server based users or through an Application Programming Interface (API) for customers who have a Cloud service.

Both “Bobby” and the APIs are read-only connections, so you don’t have to worry about safety.

We access only your “coarse” data points related to quotes and billing, so your patient-specific and identifiable information, or ePHI, stays with you.

The Ronan Solutions team – the Aesthetic Society’s technology partner in this unique project – does the “heavy lifting” of mapping your practice data and terminology to ensure that you’re comparing apples to apples on the Network. It is then delivered back to you in easy-to-use Dashboards that allow you to dive deep into your data and compare it with other practices in your area or across the country.

No extra data entry is required from you or your staff. For server-based users, hardware setup takes about 15 minutes. Cloud-based users require no setup at all!

No! ANN works with your existing Practice Management system, so all you have to do is plug it in and you’re ready to go. When we’ve retrieved the data and mapped your practice, you’ll get a Web-based link to your Dashboards. It’s that simple!

ANN is currently optimized for server-based Nextech, Patient NOW, and Intellipract systems, with Nextech Cloud coming in the near future. Support for new systems is being continuously expanded.

No! Only you will have access to information that is specific to your practice. Other members will only see your data as part of an aggregate, allowing you the benefit of comparing your data with your peers, but protecting your privacy.

Yes! We take data security extremely seriously. ANN relies on read-only hardware to access your data, which is then encrypted using SHA-256 and securely sent through a virtual private tunnel to our HITRUST-certified Cloud, constructed and managed by Iron Medical Systems, the largest medical cloud provider for radiation and oncology organizations nationwide.

Nothing! ANN is a complimentary and exclusive benefit available only to Active Aesthetic Society Members.

ANN was developed by Ronan Solutions, a joint venture between Anzu®, a technology company that brought you RADAR, and Iron Medical Systems®, the largest cloud host in the world for Varian, a radiation oncology treatment and software manufacturer. Anzu® and Ronan Solutions® were co-founded by Dr. Barry Fernando, an aesthetic surgeon and Aesthetic Society member.

Symplast is ANN Optimized, meaning that they partner with us to seamlessly and accurately provide the appropriate data when a practice joins the Aesthetic Neural Network.

We also currently offer ANN to server-based users of Intellipract, PatientNOW, and Nextech.

More systems are added all the time – many by request! If you don’t see your system listed here, or if you use a Cloud for your data storage, contact melissa@surgery.org.
