DES MOINES, Iowa, April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rational Surgical Solutions (RSS) will exhibit at Booth #804 at the American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) Annual Conference (April 22-25, Indianapolis). RSS will showcase two videos for its Rati-Fi® Patient Engagement & Informed Consent App, total hip replacement and Total Knee Replacement. The Rati-Fi® platform helps orthopaedic practices see more patients, streamline and automate procedures, and meet MIPS criteria. The AAOE Annual Conference brings together more than 500 orthopaedic practice executives and their staff from around the country for four days of education, networking, and professional development.
"The aging baby boomer population has increased the demand for hip replacement and knee replacement surgeries. Total knee replacements will increase 673% by 2030, with total hip replacement operations growing 174% over the same period," said Dr. Jonathan Fialkov, RSS President & Founder. "This growth, coupled with a diminishing surgeon workforce and the demands for meeting bundled care initiatives, puts practices under enormous pressure to increase patient flow and comply with the criteria needed for reimbursements."
Fialkov explained that the Rati-Fi® Patient Engagement Platform can help practices on several levels. "Educating and engaging patients about their treatment options and follow up care significantly reduces the incidence of readmissions and improves patient outcomes. Our platform includes videos from MedSelfEd's PreOp® and PostCare™ Centers that use medical illustrations, animations and plain language to describe medical procedures." The application records the patient-physician consult, which patients and caregivers can review using a patient portal.
The Rati-Fi Application also improves practice efficiencies by automating routine procedures. "Practices can use the Rati-Fi System for secure patient-doctor messaging, and to text patients reminders about scheduling tests and upcoming appointments. The result is fewer patient complaints, fewer cancelled procedures, and fewer no shows," said Fialkov.
