In the above video, you can direct leading surgeons in a discussion on the changing face of orthopedic care and how educational, interactive and data registry advances are changing the way care is planned for different procedures and individual patients.

As we have talked with surgeons around the country, a recurring trend emerges again and again. Covering the full spectrum of patient care is no longer just a desire of the surgeon, it is a requirement for the hospital.

It starts by engaging the patient from the beginning of the scheduling process. It ends long after the last follow up, tracking the outcome of the procedure. But while engaging the patient improves outcomes and increases patient satisfaction, it is not enough on its own.

In addition to the educational and interactive benefits of patient engagement, surgeons need a platform that allows all providers to collaborate and improve outcomes as a team.
