Setting the record straight – ScheduleWise & Fresenius

Often we are asked or even told that Fresenius owns ScheduleWise. Au contraire, mon frere! So let me set the record straight. Fresenius uses ScheduleWise. They do not own ScheduleWise. ScheduleWise LLC is and has always been owned and operated by its three principal founders, Gary and Mary Kay Hamilton and Mark Sessoms.

Fresenius did obtain a permanent license of ScheduleWise in 2015. And we (Gary and Mark) joined FMC (now FKC) to help them roll out the software to their (at the time) 2200+ clinics. And I (Mark) also continued to lead a separate development team to improve the software for FKC’s specific needs.

In the interim, Mary Kay and Brandon continued to manage ScheduleWise and introduce it to new clients, but our software development was at a standstill.

By 2018, Mark returned full-time to ScheduleWise to rebuild our product from the ground up with the help of our talented and growing development team (Alan, Suzanne, Waleed, Mike, and Doug).

By March 2019, with a completely overhauled application, we proudly released ScheduleWise 2.0!

And since then we’ve been hyper-focused on building and releasing improved features nearly every month! And that is our commitment to you, to continue to provide the dialysis industry’s most ubiquitous and, dare I say, best scheduling platform!

But we know that software is just one piece of the puzzle. Without our 20+ years of scheduling knowledge, innovation, and coaching, ScheduleWise is just a software. But the two in combination produce a winning solution for your organization to thrive in the new decade!

We hope to continue serving our clients well into the future! And if you’re not yet aware of how we can help your organization, give us a call!

I'm supposedly a helluva industrial engineer since my alma mater is Georgia Tech. But what I really seem to be good at and really enjoy is in continuous process improvement. I've been tackling scheduling practices in dialysis since 2003, and after meeting with Gary, we thought we could do something better. Five years later, the stars aligned and ScheduleWise was born... where these days, I mostly oversee software development.
