It is a well-established fact that NHS hospitals are under intense pressure to reduce waiting times for replacement surgery and improve patient outcomes, along with a growing emphasis on delivering increasingly personalised care.
With the help of BPMpathway medical-grade technology, orthopaedic patients are being discharged as early as the day of their surgery, with clinicians continuing to remotely monitor their recovery on a daily basis. Not only does this offer the potential for enormous cost savings, there is the further benefit of minimising the patient’s exposure to the additional complication of hospital-acquired infections.
Using the patient data collected by BPMpathway, clinicians can tailor the patient’s post-operative support during their recovery to meet their individual needs, efficiently prioritising resources where they are needed most.
Remote patient monitoring using BPMpathway has the further advantage of helping the clinician identify very subtle deterioration in the Range and Quality of Motion, which may be indicative of a developing issue that requires intervention, without necessarily waiting for a face to face consultation with the patient.
BPMpathway wearable technology has been developed to actively involve the patient in their rehabilitation and has been specifically designed and engineered to make it quick and easy to use wherever and whenever they want. NHS pilot studies have shown that patients using BPMpathway exhibit heightened engagement with their rehabilitation, which many clinicians consider to promote improved outcomes.
