MicroPort Orthopedics Optimizing Episodes of Care

MicroPort Orthopedics is partnering with PatientIQ to enhance operational efficiency and patient satisfaction throughout the 90 days both before and after an orthopedic procedure.

PatientIQcombines patient engagement technology with advanced analytics. With over 1,600 online education modules, PatientIQ provides a patient experience that can be specifically tailored to a procedure or a diagnosis. The platform also administers patient outcomes surveys and automates data collection throughout the entire episode of care.

MicroPort Orthopedics has also co-developed a Virtual Joint Class series, available through MicroPort’s proprietary PATHWAYS Program, providing details about what to expect during and after a procedure.

“Over the last 20 years, total joint replacement surgery has undergone a significant evolution. In the early 2000s, it was common for patients to spend days in a hospital for a procedure and then be moved to a skilled nursing facility for several weeks. Today, patients are routinely discharged hours after the procedure without any added risk and at a lower cost compared to a traditional inpatient setting,” said Benny Hagag, President of MicroPort Orthopedics. “These systemic changes to the Episode of Care, combined with the impact of COVID-19 on today’s healthcare system, have required companies to adapt and prioritize innovation and technology at the center of care. Our recent collaboration and strategic partnerships with like-minded companies and surgeons are what keep us advancing toward positive patient outcomes and effective procedures, and we are only getting started.”
