In preparing for a new facility, the UW Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine departments did an evaluation of the patient experience from end-to-end. Care pathways were then optimized with transition gaps resolved and duplicative work eliminated. Web-based Guided CarePaths were implemented for total joint replacements and ACL reconstruction that provided benefits in convenience and efficiency.
"Our goal is to empower patients and their families to be as prepared and engaged as possible across the entire continuum of their care, from initial assessments all the way through treatment, rehabilitation and recovery. By increasing patient engagement from the start, we hope to further improve patient confidence and, ultimately, their outcomes."
