Toronto, Ontario – November 23, 2015 – The Holland Orthopaedic & Arthritic Centre has partnered with SeamlessMD to introduce a mobile app that patients can use to self-manage their recovery at home after hip or knee replacement surgery. The Holland Centre, part of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, is Canada’s largest joint replacement centre, performing over 2,200 surgeries annually.Patients undergoing hip or knee replacement surgery at the Holland Centre can now download myHip&Knee, a free app to help them get ready for surgery and stay on track during recovery.The application provides patients with timely reminders leading up to surgery, a daily check in to track their progress (e.g. symptoms, pain levels, joint range of motion), a library of information including exercise videos and feedback on how to recovery safely at home. The Holland Centre will use the data to derive insights on how patients recover to help the healthcare team continuously improve the patient experience.“After conducting focus groups, we learned that many of our patients had access to smartphones and tablets, and wanted to be engaged through mobile applications,” said Deborah Kennedy, Manager of Hip & Knee Program Development at the Holland Centre. “This led our team to pursue this additional partner in care – a mobile app for smartphone and tablet users.”“We are excited to work with SeamlessMD to expand our strategy for patient- and family-centered care and improve the patient experience and health outcomes,” said Dr. Jeffrey Gollish, an Orthopaedic Surgeon and Medical Director of the Holland Centre. “The aim is that myHip&Knee will improve patient recovery by encouraging patients to complete exercises, checking in on pain levels and mobility, and advising patients when to seek more help.”“We started SeamlessMD with the mission of giving patients the best health outcomes for surgery. We are excited to partner with such a forward-thinking program as the Holland Centre to improve joint replacement care,” said Dr. Joshua Liu, CEO of SeamlessMD.About the Sunnybrook Holland Orthopaedic & Arthritic CentreLocated in downtown Toronto, the Holland Orthopaedic and Arthritic Centre of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is the largest hip and knee joint replacement centre in Canada, performing over 2,200 procedures annually.
