The Perks of a Patient Communication Solution

Best Practices: Total Joint Surgery in an ASC

Outpatient total joint replacements are becoming more and more attractive to patients. Particularly in a post-COVID-19 world, patients are attracted to the idea of at-home recovery and a shorter length-of-stay in the acute setting. As demand rises, outpatient joint replacements are expected to increase by nearly 80% over the next few years. Your ASC can meet this increasing demand by optimizing and implementing best practices now for total joint surgery. 

The Benefits of Better Patient Communication

With rapidly-changing healthcare regulations, ASCs must consider how to deliver high-quality care while pivoting to meet the demands of changing legal and safety requirements. At the same time, patients want more information and they want it to be easily accessible. 

Total Joint Procedures Post-COVID-19

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, elective orthopedic procedures dropped about 61%, according to the American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives. Postponing these elective surgeries has left a significant amount of revenue on the table. While general hospitals are still prioritizing COVID-19 treatment, ASCs have a perfect opportunity to increase their volume of elective procedures, such as total joint replacements. 

Case Study: Increasing Patient Satisfaction with 1MP

We have the pleasure of working with ASC staff from all over the country. They use 1MP software to streamline and improve whichever daily functions they desire - and the results? Incredible functionality, fewer cancellations than ever before, increased revenue, and so much more. Here are a few real examples of how 1MP can help increase patient satisfaction.

How to Create a Better Total Joint Patient Journey

Research has found that undergoing any total joint replacement can make patients feel uncertain, vulnerable, and nervous. They may experience a decrease in trust for their own body. They may have intense anxiety about harming their new joint. As their healthcare provider, you have a crucial role in helping patients feel more confident and at ease. Instead of feeling anxious and uncertain, with your help, patients can experience a significantly improved quality of life.
