Surgical Transitions is a program that uses an application called Seamless MD to prepare patients for surgery, provide a library of educational materials about their procedure, do personal health checks after surgery and connect with a nurse if they have questions or concerns about their recovery.
Patients are enrolled by email or mobile phone number and can access this app 24/7. They stay enrolled for 30 days after leaving the hospital and can use the app as much or as little as they choose. Often this provides access to the help needed, without a trip to the doctor or the emergency department. So far, over 85% of the patients who have used Seamless MD were happy with the program and would recommend it to others or use it again.
