PHYSICIANS & SURGEONS

Physicians & Surgeons want:

  • To eliminate the stress of not knowing whether a patient is suffering from a complication.
  • Correct medical diagnoses which support demand for remote patient monitoring systems. These monitoring systems will increase the accuracy and ensure that any post-operative complication is detected before it becomes a problem.
  • To eliminate unnecessary post-operative follow up procedures that requires time and money. They will have an extra pair of “eyes” inside the patient, tracking the patients recovery and identifying post-operative complications as they develop.

Occurance of Post-Operative Complications

Among all types of home medical equipment, remote monitoring & real-time systems based on telemedicine technology will generate the fastest revenue growth as physicians are pressured by health insurers to become more accountable for improving patient outcomes & controlling treatment costs.

 

Patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery for malignancy, typically represent high-risk patients.  In addition, patients with a predicted mortality of ≥5% are also managed as high risk.  80% of post-operative complications occur in high-risk patients, even though these high-risk patients represent less than 15% of the total inpatient procedures. The majority of emergency general laparoscopic surgeries fall in this category, together with complex elective GI and vascular procedures, in comorbid patients.

 

Over 7000 individuals pass away every year due to the failure or late detection of post-operative complications. Some of the intangible effects of using NERv’s solution are that the physician/surgeon would be able to focus and perform better on other surgical procedures and the amount of time wasted on doing unnecessary follow ups and routine investigations will be reduced, providing them with ample time to follow up with other patients.
