Sunnyvale, Calif. October 3, 2015. Doctella.com, an online and mobile resource for patients and families to improve patient engagement and reduce preventable medical errors and adverse events, announced it will be exhibiting at booth 1425 at the American College of Surgeons’ Clinical Congress 2015 in Chicago, Illinois from October 4-8, 2015. With Doctella, surgeons can provide their patients with a solution that enables them to become better partners with their healthcare team and be more satisfied with their care.
Surgical safety checklists in the hands of surgeons have been proven to make care safer by reducing surgical complications and improving processes geared toward patient safety. Doctella has created a library of Patient Checklists designed to better prepare and engage patients for their surgical procedures, putting the power of this same clinically effective tool in the hands, and on the smart phones, tablets or laptops, of patients. The checklists are a powerful communications tool designed to help strengthen the patient-physician relationship, making them equal partners throughout medical treatment.
Doctella’s patient checklists help patients decide whether or not to have surgery in fewer office visits as patients receive the critical information they need to make informed decisions about their care in one setting. The checklists empower your patients to participate in and answer all of the questions they may have about guiding them through pre-surgical, day-of, and post-operative preparations with easy-to-understand, customizable information. Integrating Doctella into clinical practice is a simple way to increase patient satisfaction and reduce costly complications.
Doctella will be demonstrating its patient engagement solution at booth 1425. To set up a private demonstration and meeting please contact Mary Lodenkemper at Mary@doctella.com.
