Huma's Peri-Op Solution

Huma’s Peri-Op solution helps clinical teams gain insight into their patients’ health while supporting them each step of the way.

The Huma solution for total joint replacements has initially been launched in partnership with Smith & Nephew to help guide patients through their journey whilst collecting validated patient-reported outcomes for Total Knee and Hip Arthroplasty.

How the solution works

Huma’s Peri-Op solution has two parts: a patient app and a web-based portal for surgical teams. The patient app provides timed educational content, activity tracking, and in-licensed questionnaires (e.g. EQ-5D-5L, PROMIS-CAT pain interference, and physical function questionnaires) to ensure patients are optimised pre-op and provided with increased support post-op. 

The web-based portal provides aggregated, anonymised real-world data that can be used to correlate outcomes with the type of knee/hip implant, surgery, and rehabilitation approach to support further improvements in clinical care.

Huma’s Peri-Operative solution for Smith & Nephew

Huma’s peri-operative solution for Smith & Nephew has been developed for total joint arthroplasty patients. The app allows patients to remotely track symptoms, outcomes, and vitals, allowing hospitals to plan their surgical pathways and improve patient care. 

The app also integrates further functionalities to support COVID-19 tracking (Symptoms, Questionnaires, Temperature via a smartphone) and virtual remote visits (Telemedicine).

Outcomes from pre-op optimisation

Existing research published by comparable solutions has proved that pre-op optimisation improves surgical outcomes

Icons-03

Reduced length of stay

By enhancing patient activation through an RPM solution it has been proved that patient length of stay can be reduced by 1-day1

Icons-02

Reduced pain perception & increased satisfaction

Using a digital solution to increase patients’ participation in their care has reduced pain intensity post-op in addition to increasing patient satisfaction with care2

Icons-04

Reduced negative outcomes

RPM is able to identify higher risk patients to enable closer monitoring of their recovery2, providing digitised information on recovery and infection prevention reducing the rate of 30-day readmissions3

Outcomes from Huma’s pre and post-op solution

From our peri-operative partnerships, we have identified the target outcome areas where our solution can impact:

Icons-02

Decrease pre-op anxiety

Educating patients around the main topics that could cause the most anxiety

Icons-04

Increase patient activation

Relevant educational content that engages patients. Contextual learning to help patients achieve certain requirements e.g. weight loss

Icons-05

Reduce unplanned cancellations

Improved visibility of health data between the patient and clinician pre surgery and visibility of surgical timeline

Icons-03

Reduce length of stay

Patients become better prepared for surgery through personal goal setting. Pushed contextual learning informs the patient of their procedure and recovery process

Icons-01

Reduce negative outcomes

Improved visibility and communication of health data post surgery between the patient and clinician. Rehabilitation information shared in learn content
