We are proud to share the results of our partnership with Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC), a 375-bed acute care hospital delivering care across Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario. Having achieved excellent outcomes using SeamlessMD for various surgical pathways including Total Hip and Knee surgery, the care team was confident they could also reduce post-discharge Emergency Department (ED) visits, length of stay (LOS) and readmissions for its Spine surgery program.

Results for using SeamlessMD in the Spine Surgery program include:

  • ↓ 3.4 days LOS
  • ↓ 56.5% Readmissions
  • ↓ 35.8% ED Visits

TBRHSC has currently implemented SeamlessMD for its Spine, Shoulder, Bariatric, Urology, Colorectal, and Breast Cancer surgery programs, and is now actively implementing the technology for its Cardiac, Oncology, and Maternity care programs.

Here’s what a Spine Surgery patient monitored on SeamlessMD said about their experience:

“This program helps me feel more confident in healing and recovery at home. It provides me quick access to information about my procedure and the healing process, as well as support if needed. The daily health check also helps me feel supported by knowing that my responses are being monitored daily.”
