SeamlessMD’s FREE Restart Surgery Digital Screening Tool Featured on SAGES COVID-19 Resource Page
May 19, 2020
With COVID-19 still looming and misinformation about hospital safety, patients are experiencing higher anxiety levels than ever before as we aim to resume elective surgery.
To help ease the transition, The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) has featured SeamlessMD on the official SAGES COVID-19 Resource Page as a free resource to help health systems, hospitals, and surgeons to safely restart surgery.
For patients waiting for a surgery date: the tool automatically screens patients for their willingness to have surgery and for COVID-19 risk factors (e.g. demographics, comorbidities, travel history). Surgeons can access reports on patient readiness and risk factors to determine which patients are the best candidates to have surgery sooner.
For patients with a booked surgery date: the tool screens patients daily for COVID-19 symptoms, flags patients who may be at-risk and provides patients with self-care education on COVID-19 and proper isolation protocols. Surgeons can access reports to review COVID-19 risk levels, to better inform if any surgeries need to be rescheduled.
In addition to our best practice education (which includes ongoing updates for state-specific and CDC guidelines), we’ve partnered with Wolters Kluwer, Health so that health systems can deliver interactive, evidence-based, COVID-19 multimedia content through SeamlessMD all at no cost.
As the world aims to restart surgery, we are honored to be mentioned by SAGES and for the opportunity to help support the surgeon community-at-large.
