80% of medical errors involve communication problems in healthcare. Doctella offers surgeons a simple way to reduce medical errors and improve patient engagement and education with proven concepts.
Sunnyvale, Calif. January 26, 2016. 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 #2 at the 11th Annual Academic Surgical Congress (ASC) in Jacksonville, Florida on February 2-4, 2016. ASC has become the premier gathering place for surgeon-scientist. This year’s program is being led by Kasper Wang, MD of the SUS and Doctella’s Co-Founder, Adil Haider, MD, MPH of the AAS. Doctella’s surgical pioneers provide their patients with a solution that enables them to become better partners with their healthcare team and be more satisfied with their care.
Surgery can be stressful for anyone. Doctella is a simple, easy-to-use tool designed to better prepare and engage patients for their surgical procedures. Surgical safety checklists in the hands of surgeons has been proven effective in providing safer care in reducing surgical complications and improving processes geared toward patient safety. Why not put this same solution in the hands of patients? Doctella has created a library of patient checklist to help strengthen the patient-physician relationship by making them equal partners in their care.
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 #2. To set up a private demonstration and meeting with our Surgical Director contact Mary Lodenkemper at Mary@doctella.com.
