Short description

This multifunctional mobile app prepares preoperative patients for Major Ambulatory Surgery (MAS) by providing personalized information adjusted to their clinical conditions. It monitors the compliance with preoperative recommendations by establishing a communication channel between patients and health care professionals.

The twinning provides an overview of the patient specific recovery milestones and gives information regarding their expectations, responsibilities in the pre- and post-operative time, combined with personalized instructions for the procedure-specific protocols for the general wellbeing of the patients and in case of complications. Furthermore, the solution aims also at contributing to the standardization of preoperative patient management in day surgery, facilitating the set-up of shared training programs.

The full adoption twinning will be organized in 3 phases – Adaptation, Adoption and Scale Up. This includes testing interoperability with local ICT systems, developing a pilot study with 50 patients and finally, exploiting and disseminating the clinical and financial outcomes of the pilot study as the starting point of executive projects.
