The typical approach adopted by many hospitals is to provide all patients with the same post-operative support package. These support resources are, however, under pressure like any other area of healthcare and need to be prioritised.
With the comprehensive progress data collected by BPMpathway, clinicians can tailor an orthopaedic patient’s post-operative support to meet their individual needs, without necessarily waiting for a face to face consultation. In other words, a personalised recovery programme to support the patient throughout the rehabilitation process, helping them to get back to their normal life as quickly as possible.
Using BPMpathway wearable technology, clinicians can remotely review the patient’s post-surgical recovery. When they’re progressing well at home, the clinician can decide that the patient can continue their rehabilitation in the comfort of their own home, thereby freeing up the resources that would otherwise have been allocated to them for those who need them most.
In the case of those patients who are struggling with their recovery, BPMpathway provides a means of identifying the potential need for early intervention and a communication link between the patient and clinician to establish whether they need to be prioritised for outpatient support.
