GET READY®
REMOTE PATIENT MANAGEMENT FOR TRULY CONNECTED CARE

From monitoring patients on the waiting list to enabling remote procedure preparation and follow-up

Long waiting lists, capacity issues and contamination risks make patient management and ensuring optimal outcomes more challenging than ever. That is why hospitals are looking for ways to reserve capacity while sustaining access to care and reducing unnecessary exposure for staff and patients alike.

To answer this need and to prepare hospitals for the future of remote medicine, we have developed Get Ready®, a digital, remote patient management solution that enables hospitals to provide procedure preparation, follow-up care, and monitoring — including risk monitoring for waitlisted patients — from the comfort of the patient’s home.

ABOUT GET READY®

Get Ready® is a digital, remote patient management solution that aims to optimize the entire care pathway, from waiting list to post-intervention follow-up. Our digital solution connects patients and clinical team for better coordination and management, and by leveraging our extensive knowledge library of questionnaires and protocols based on KOL input and literature guidelines, it helps you optimise and improve the entire patient journey across a variety of diseases and use cases.

Get Ready®  is based on three core components to maximise value for patients, healthcare professionals and hospitals: 

Technology

Digital platform connecting patients and clinical team for better coordination and management.

Therapy-specific knowledge

Extensive knowledge base and clinical protocols across many therapies.

Pathway digitalization and optimization

Support of an experienced consulting team in the implementation of efficient and patient-centred pathways.

Our Get Ready® solution enables: 

Monitoring

Our multi-channel platform (web, mobile, SMS) allows patients to register symptoms and enter vital-sign measurements. Care teams can monitor patients remotely and identify, as early as possible, any deterioration in the patient's health status.

Education

Patients receive relevant and engaging content and guidance at different stages of their treatment.

Communication

WHY IS GET READY® NEEDED?

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, there is an urgent need to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of maintaining patients at home, thereby avoiding unnecessary hospital stays, enabling same-day admission and early discharge. 

Get Ready® enables hospitals and healthcare professionals a way to remotely manage their patients, from monitoring them on a waiting list, to enabling remote procedure preparation and follow-up.  

Get Ready® provides optimal care as it offers a wide range of functionalities: 

  • Easy configuration of hospital-specific protocols and patient questionnaires
  • Quick patient enrollment
  • Continuous monitoring of patient responses with related automatic alerts
  • Automatic recordkeeping of actions taken in case of an alert

CARDIOVASCULAR THERAPIES

Get Ready® for the remote management of cardiovascular patients aims to optimize the entire care pathway. It helps you manage your patients and monitor their risk while they are waiting for their intervention. In addition, once scheduled, you can remotely manage their preparation and follow-up. The solution is tailored to your needs and configured to address your specific challenges.

  • SAVR + CABG
  • Valve Surgery, incl. Mitral valve

 

Interventional:

  • Transcatheter Aortic  Valve Implantation (TAVI)​
  • Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) and  Elective angiography

 

Cardiac Rhythm​

Electrophysiology and Implants: 

  • Implantable Pulse  Generators (IPGs)
  • Implantable Cardioverter  Defibrillators (ICDs)
  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) ​
  • Ablation for Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

 

Vascular:

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm​
  • Peripheral Artery Disease​
  • Carotid Artery Disease
  • Uncomplicated Type B Aortic Dissection
  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm​
  • Peripheral Aneurysm

Bariatric SURGERY

Key challenges for people living with obesity and the healthcare system supporting them during the COVID-19 crisis:

Obesity and diabetes are major risk factors for COVID-19 hospitalisation & mortality
 
  • 113% more likely to require hospitalisation
  • 74 % more likely to require ICU admission
  • 48 % increased risk of mortality1
 

Hospitals are experiencing challenges with capacity and procedural backlog

  • Approximately 28 million elective surgeries will be or have been postponed over a 12-week period
  • Delaying elective bariatric surgery may adversely offset the benefits of it

 

Reduced access to surgical treatment for obesity has led to:

  • Weight gain
  • Health deterioration due to obesity-related diseases

 

The Get Ready® digital solution enables healthcare teams to keep patients living with obesity engaged on their treatment pathways from the safety of their homes, thereby maximising hospital capacity.

NEUROSURGERY

Neurosurgery departments are struggling with three key challenges:

Covid-19

And the urgent need to decrease physical touchpoints between patients and hospitals while maintaining the highest standard of care

Lack of a systemised approach to spinal treatment & recovery

And the need to improve efficacy and health outcomes for patients suffering from spinal diseases

Inability to reduce patients’ length of stay

While ensuring care continuity and safety

Get Ready® helps hospitals and healthcare professionals optimise patient's treatment by:

Guiding and supporting patients remotely before and after procedure

Enhancing patients' discharge after a procedure

Standardising medical practices and protocols

Get Ready® can be applied to the following neurosurgery therapies:

  • Spine​
  • Painstimulation
  • Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

Proven results. Best practices. 

Medtronic Integrated Health Solutions (IHS) has implemented Get Ready© in the neurosurgery department of the Amiens University Hospital. Our digital solution has made it possible to:

Shorten patient hospital length of stay from 5.6 days to 4.3 days

Increase their spine surgery same-day admission rate by 33%

Move to Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathway for spine

Improve patient satisfaction

"Our partnership with Medtronic was our biggest asset toward implementing same-day discharge and ERAS."

- Prof. Lefranc - Neurosurgeon, Amiens University Hospital

COVID-19 AND OTHER THERAPIES

With Get Ready® hospitals and their medical care teams can remotely monitor the health status of COVID-19 patients following an ED visit or conventional hospitalization and detect symptoms of deterioration when patients are at home.

Our solution can be also applied to the following therapies:

  • Pelvic
  • Ear, Nose & Throat  (SRRP)​
