OPUM US Inc. has partnered with iProcedures, a leading provider of perioperative digital solutions, to advance remote management for patients pre and post orthopedic surgery.
OPUM’s Digital Knee® is a remote patient management platform which consists of a modular wearable brace with connected apps. Their knee orthotics work to collect insights on recovery and deliver personalized rehabilitation to the patient through a consumer facing mobile app which enhances both engagement and independence. Actionable insights are also presented to providers via a web portal to enable scalable management of remote patients.
This partnership with iProcedure’s solution, iPro ASC, is focused on seamless integration of the Digital Knee® with Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems in the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) setting. As the top-rated vendor by KLAS Research, iProcedures has a nationwide presence in the US and is experiencing rapid growth in the ASC market.
“The combination of an EHR designed for ASCs and OPUM’s remote patient monitoring solution is an exciting next step in the area of orthopedic care,” says Dr. Jonathan Myer, Orthopedic Surgeon, Synergy Orthopedic Specialists Medical Group.
This partnership will make remote patient monitoring services simple and accessible to providers, giving greater confidence in early discharge of patients from ASCs. Providers will be able to increase their remote patient care and add additional revenue through expanded services. Data interoperability will also enable providers to manage patients in one location and glean previously unattainable insights into pre-operative planning as well as tracking recovery post-surgery to ensure successful outcomes.
“The telehealth industry has accelerated through COVID and has been asking for ways to grow their remote patient offerings,” says OPUM CEO Andrew McDaid. “This partnership makes it even easier for orthopedic practices to include remote patient care.”
