Healthcare organizations improve outcomes by enhancing pre-op, day-of surgery and post-discharge experiences

New York, N.Y.— October 25, 2023 — Patient engagement and care management innovator Equiva Health today unveiled Equiva Peri-Op Connect, a solution that improves surgical experiences and outcomes by expanding access to education and support resources for patients and their caregivers. Hospitals and surgery centers use the solution to enhance care journeys which, in turn helps improve outcomes, streamline efficiencies and improve patient experience — both at home and in facility.

“Tablets and mobile apps are increasingly used to make surgical care journeys more holistic,” said Samsung Healthcare’s Trevor Smith who, as head of business development, leads collaboration with Equiva. “We see value in Equiva’s approach with these devices to improve access to educational materials as well as stress reduction tools, social services resources, language interpretation and more.”

Equiva technology enables patients and loved ones to download a mobile app pre-loaded with facility-specified pre-op offerings such as surgery preparation instructions, educational videos and facility information. For in-facility use, tablets provide anxiety relief tools, entertainment, communication tools, educational materials and more. Thereafter, the mobile app provides post-op care instructions, recovery-focused education, hospital services information, and the like.

Equiva Peri-op Connect is powered by the company’s platform which enables quick, cost-effective aggregation and distribution of health- and wellness-related information, resources and tools via digital devices. Equiva collaborates with customers to define care engagement and management goals, and to map user interfaces to support these goals. Insights are gleaned from usage reports and configurable patient surveys.

“Anxiety is heightened during surgical journeys. Patients and their caregivers often struggle to follow important instructions,” said Equiva CEO Nir Altman. “We developed this solution to reduce downsides associated with these challenges, such as costly delays and readmissions, and also to automate functions traditionally requiring hands-on staffing resources.”
