Zipnosis adds post-surgical care services to telehealth platform

Zipnosis expanded its telehealth platform with a module designed to connect patients to post-operative care services following orthopedic surgery, the virtual care company confirmed April 11.

The surgical care module enables hospitals and surgery centers to transition select in-person post-operative visits to Zipnosis’ online platform. As part of a post-operative care plan, a hospital or surgery center determines at which points a patient should complete a virtual check-in, which comprises a brief online interview and uploading a photograph of the incision site.

A member of the facility’s surgical team is able to review the patient’s responses to determine whether he or she should visit the clinic for a more in-depth evaluation. Read more.
