NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. – Northwell Health and Force Therapeutics have signed a two-year agreement to implement a customized, video-based software platform for better monitoring and communication between patients and providers following orthopedic surgeries. “We see immense potential in the applications of the software platform because we can quickly address many of the main causes of complications before, during and after joint replacement surgery,” said Dr. Giles Scuderi, vice president of Northwell’s orthopedic service line, in a statement. By using Force’s technology, Northwell is aiming to improve outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions, increase the number of patients being discharged home as opposed to rehabilitation and decrease health care costs. To date, seven Northwell hospitals are using the software platform and 1,300 patients are enrolled in the program. The technology is expanding to other Northwell hospitals and orthopedic practices.
