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.
Decreased length of stay post surgery
Conduct pre-op optimization and prehabilitation to increase surgical effectiveness
Decreased surgical cancellations
Prepare patients for their surgeries by giving them appropriate protocols, education and setting their expectations
Decreased readmissions post surgery
Improve patients’ post-discharge adherence to care plans and provider ability to remotely monitor patients
Increased patient and provider satisfaction
Provide patients with new ways to engage with their healthcare provider to increase their education and adherence to their surgical protocols before, during and after their surgery
Vendors of Record
OTN has validated three vendors offering mature and market tested self-management tools that standardize surgical pathways and improve patient engagement before, during and after surgery. A rigorous process was applied to identify and qualify these third-party virtual care solutions. An innovative procurement approach was used to establish a provincial Vendor of Record, supported by all 14 of Ontario’s LHINs, that can be readily utilized by Broader Public Sector organizations to acquire these virtual care solutions.
