Virtual Perioperative Care at Atrium Health
Virtual care, including real-time data sharing and the ability to interact with the clinical team, can give patients and their families peace of mind and help them to play a proactive role in safely speeding up their own recovery from the comfort of home.
For the 15th Health IRL, Lygeia Ricciardi chatted live about virtual perioperative care with Shannon Crotwell, a clinical nurse navigator and pioneer in applying this technology from Atrium Health/Perfect Care, and Marc Reid, who recently recovered from cardiac surgery with Shannon’s help.
They talked about:
Which kinds of data Mark collected and shared
How the data helped Shannon’s team support Mark
How having access to real-time data and a clinical team from home helped Mark
Shannon’s advice for other healthcare providers that want to provide pre and post-surgical care at home to their patients
Patient Experience: Ease of Use
The ease-of-use is extremely important when you think about your patient engagement and patient satisfaction.
