University Hospitals Use Digital Care Journeys to Enhance Recovery After Cardiac Surgery

On Demand Webinar

An interactive discussion with Dr. Marc Pelletier, Chief of Cardiac Surgery, University Hospitals on how University Hospitals is using Digital Care Journeys for Cardiac Surgery to support their enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) strategy and improve patient outcomes. Earlier this year, University Hospitals received a Patient Engagement Best Practice award from the Ohio Patient Safety Institute in recognition of their ERAS Program and their focus on creating shorter hospital stays, less use of opioids, fewer post-surgical infections, and lower costs for patients.

You’ll have the opportunity to hear Dr. Pelletier share how Digital Care Journeys are being used to digitally engage patients through a mobile and web-enabled virtual companion that guides them step-by-step through pre-operative, in hospital and post-operative phases and how the platform enabled University Hospitals to lower costs, reduce ED visits by 68% and readmissions by 49%.

From this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why health systems like University Hospitals are taking an innovative approach to digitally connect, engage, and remote monitor patients undergoing open heart surgery
  • What processes University Hospitals implemented to deliver a better patient experience, resulting in less phone calls, ED visits, readmissions, and cost savings
  • How Digital Care Journeys enable health systems to deliver evidence-based ERAS pathways, including:
  1. Paperless patient education before, during, and after hospitalization
  2. Collection of Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) surveys (e.g., PROMIS-10)
  3. Monitoring patient compliance, symptoms, and recovery progress (e.g., chlorhexidine wash, eating and drinking cessation, incision photos, etc.)
