DePuy Synthes Companies of Johnson & Johnson recently announced the national launch of the DePuy Synthes Advantage Outpatient Solutions Program, which is designed to aid in the institution of best protocols for joint arthroplasty in ambulatory surgery centers and outpatient hospitals. According to a company press release, the program will offer a full portfolio of hip, knee and shoulder arthroplasty solutions with a suite of training, education and support services tailored to the outpatient setting.
“Outpatient joint replacement is an emerging option for healthy, motivated patients that may help them safely recover more quickly, and in the comfort of their own homes, instead of in the hospital,” Scott Zellner, director of DePuy Synthes Advantage, said in the release. “When performed on the right patient, in the right setting, with trained staff, and leveraging innovative surgical techniques and implant technologies, these procedures have the potential to improve outcomes, speed recovery, manage costs, improve efficiency and increase patient satisfaction.”
For clinicians, the program will cover proper protocols on patient selection and preparation, care both preoperatively and postoperatively, operation, discharge management, patient monitoring, rehabilitation and physical therapy, and patient engagement through all stages of the process. According to the release, other services in the program will include CareSense, subscription-based software for data collection and analysis, and the Patient Athlete Program, a patient empowerment video program.
“As an industry leader in orthopedics, we have an opportunity to support adoption of outpatient joint replacement through proven and comprehensive programs that go beyond the implant with the goals of improving clinical outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction and reducing costs,” Zellner said in the release. “We expect more health care professionals will consider outpatient joint replacement as an important option for their patients, and we will be right there with them to provide the support they need to optimize outcomes.”
