Our unique combination of apps support patients digitally through their surgical journey

End-to-end digital pathway for surgical patients – made simple

Recognising the pressing challenge of huge elective surgery waiting lists – often hindered by outdated, paper-heavy systems – it’s more important than ever that hospitals embrace proven digital technologies that can ease the elective backlog pressure.

Our combination of digital solutions refocuses the surgical pathway around the patient, to deliver continuity of care and avoid unnecessary appointments and cancellations.

This “end-to-end” approach results in better patient outcomes, cost savings, increased efficiency and hospital capacity.

We have created a secure two-way information exchange system, offering patients personalised support and education at every stage of the journey.

Our digital pathway is clinically proven to reduce the need for face to face appointments, offer a list of surgery-ready patients, facilitate remote working and reduce readmissions through continuous virtual support. 

Definition Connect

Definition Connect is a secure file sharing and digital video consultancy system which streamlines pre-and post-surgical consultations, ongoing patient recovery and patient discharge.

Definition LifeBox

Definition LifeBox is a digital pre-operative assessment tool that streamlines patient assessment, facilitating hospital decision-making, enabling personalised patient care, and unlocking additional capacity for healthcare teams.

Definition Recovery

Definition Recovery is a virtual ward that enables self-reporting of symptoms during post-operative recovery, updating the hospital in real-time and red flagging patients that need immediate assistance.

“If patients are waiting a long time for surgery, a second pre-assessment will need to be undertaken to ensure there are no changes to the patient’s condition.  With the LifeBox product, information can be updated virtually, ensuring patients do not need to have unnecessary visits to hospital.”

Mary Richardson, managing director South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre

“When COVID began, LifeBox really came into its own. Staff are interacting with LifeBox more than ever, and it ensures the pre-assessment process is as smooth and seamless as possible which in turn improves the quality of care and reduces risk to our patients.”

Claire Manley, outpatient’s services manager at St John and St Elizabeth Hospital (HJE), London
