To help monitor patient progress post surgery, Ethicon Surgical's division Realize has put together a two-sided platform called 'Kaleidoscope' that allows consumers to have on-going conversation and monitoring from their doctors. This allows both patients and medical staff to stay in direct contact after an operation to keep tabs on the status and any complications.
After an operation there are many factors of health that need to be monitored to ensure patients regain the mobility and strength they once had. This includes eating habits and 'Kaleidoscope' helps to create a easy to communicate platform for those updates to be share. The communication happens all online and is monitored by the doctors, so that face-to-face visits can target any ongoing issues or behaviors that need to be changed.
