Today we are excited to share that our amazing customer partner Thunder Bay Regional has published their Orthopedic results with SeamlessMD in Arthroplasty Today, one of the journals supported by the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons.

Leveraging SeamlessMD’s digital health platform for Hip & Knee replacement, the Thunder Bay team achieved:

  • ↓ 24% length of stay (p = < 0.001)
  • ↓ 49% 60-day ER visits (p = 0.018)

To ensure apples-to-apples comparisons, the group did a matched cohort analysis where the SeamlessMD and Control data sets had no statistically significant differences in age, sex, BMI, smoking status and ASA score.

Congrats to the Thunder Bay team on this accomplishment!

Beyond orthopedics, Thunder Bay has successfully used SeamlessMD hospital-wide across 14 clinical areas (women’s health, cardiology, bariatrics, oncology, etc.) to reduce LOS by 48% and ED visits by 32%.
