Sustainable Healthcare 

The need for discharging patients with various paper leaflets and dealing with common post-discharge phone calls is removed. Patients travel home calm and reassured, safe in the knowledge that their recovery is being monitored remotely and all the information they need is in one place. Carbon emissions emitted during travel to routine outpatient appointments are reduced as face-to-face check-ups happen only when absolutely necessary.
