Surgical Transition Solutions

Effective virtual solutions to improve the patient experience, decrease length of stay, reduce readmissions and decrease surgical cancellations.

Supporting Surgical Pathways

There is a clear need for virtual patient engagement solutions that can support efficient and effective surgical pathways. We know that hospitals need to standardize care before, during and after surgery, in order to get patients back on their feet more quickly while maintaining the quality of care delivery. There is compelling evidence to suggest that surgical transition solutions can enable the achievement of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Patients First strategy through shortening hospital stays, reducing complications after surgery, and enhancing the patient experience.
