Orthopedic Digital Care Journeys: Virtually Guiding Patients Pre & Post Surgery while Collecting Patient-Reported Outcomes
It’s estimated that every year, over 1.1 million patients in the United States and Canada undergo total joint replacement surgery. However, with an aging population and increase in chronic conditions the demand for hip and knee operations is increasing dramatically. A study in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery estimates by 2030 “demand for total hip arthroplasties to grow by 174% to 572,000 and demand for primary total knee arthroplasties by 673% to 3.48 million procedures”.
This 60-minute webinar highlights how Dr. Friedrich Boettner, an orthopedic surgeon and specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), recognized the shift to value-based care and identified several areas of improvement that could be solved using a digital patient engagement platform. Specifically, the need for more comprehensive patient education, remote patient monitoring, and more effective methods for collecting Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) than traditional paper-based surveys.
During the webinar, you’ll learn how to:
Automate the collection of validated PRO survey data for high volume procedures such as hip and knee replacement to achieve a greater than 69% PRO response rate
Engage patients with a mobile and web-enabled, virtual companion that can effectively guide them from pre-op preparation through post-op recovery
Remotely monitor patient compliance, symptoms, and recovery progress such as knee range-of-motion, pain levels, and incision photos to reduce phone calls
Deliver interactive personalized care plans designed for orthopedic patients to empower patients to self-care
Incorporate and effectively launch orthopedic digital care journeys to improve patient quality
