Is your PreOperative Service following College guidelines?
MyPreOp health kiosks bring airport style express check-in to hospitals, providing a one-stop solution for preoperative assessment.
The Royal College of Anaesthetists guidelines for PreOperative Assessment and Preparation 2017 say:
• It is preferable for one-stop arrangements to be implemented
• Electronic systems should be considered
• Information from the patient’s PreOp assessment should be readily available, ideally as part of an electronic patient record
• Details of websites that provide reliable, impartial and evidence-based information should be made available to patients
MyPreOp delivers all of these requirements but with less staff...
An easy win – taking the pain out of pre-op assessments. Interview by Kathryn Reilly
Ultramed upgrade to smart new premises.
Ultramed collect award for Business Innovation of the year, presented by Levi Roots.
"In the health service pre-operation assessments are normally carried out by nurses in surgeries or hospitals. Ultramed has turned this on its head by allowing patients to do their own assessments at home on their own computers or smart phones. They have designed a product that is simple for the patient to use but which provides detailed data for the clinician. Anything that can save time and resources in the NHS must be a good thing especially when it is done in such a clever way as this and that is why Ultramed is the winner of this year’s most creative use of design award. They may be a very young company but with this unique product the future looks really bright."
