How virtual clinics can be implemented within your service
MyPathway Orthopaedics long-term follow-up clinics
The total number of hip and knee replacements being carried out has risen significantly over the past 20 years. Patients receiving their standard 1-year follow-up appointments for these treatments are often kept waiting for long periods, only for 90% of them to be seen by consultants in spite of having no issues. MyPathway provides a simple screening solution so that consultants only need to see patients with continuing needs.
Patients having hip and knee replacements are invited to sign up to the virtual clinic. 8 weeks prior to the 1-year follow-up, each patient is sent an automated message reminding them to complete a series of online forms, as well get an x-ray at a time and place of their convenience. The clinician will review the patient’s results at the virtual clinic and inform the patient of the advised next steps; discharge, access plan or hospital appointment.
