BuddyCare is a care coordination and patient engagement platform for hospitals, specialized clinics and surgery centers to automate and monitor patients’ preparation and recovery activities for surgical procedures. BuddyCare helps to solve the following challenges:
- Globally even 17% cancellation and no-show rates
- Hours per patient wasted on pre- and post-operative administrative communications
- Lack of simple communication channel to educate and engage surgery patients at home
- No automated follow-up processes to keep patients on track with their recovery plans
The solution provides both patients and clinics with real-time information to ensure that patients are on the procedure day ready for the operation according to all instructions. BuddyCare tracks patients’ pre- and post-operative task completion and adherence to instructions to streamline the whole care process.
BuddyCare has been co-developed in close cooperation with two Finnish University Hospitals and two leading Children’s Hospitals in the US. This has enabled us to consider specific needs and challenges hospitals and smaller clinics face.
