Zimmer Biomet introduces Signature Solutions, a suite of clinical services and technologies to help streamline care and optimize patient outcomes.

The services are designed to help hospitals and medical practices transition to value-based healthcare models by maintaining excellent patient outcomes, while maximizing procedural and cost efficiencies across the entire episode of care, explains a media release from Warsaw, Ind-based Zimmer Biomet.

The Signature Solutions suite of services includes: interactive patient engagement tools designed to educate patients about the procedure and treatment options, facilitate physician-patient communication, and increase patient adherence to pre-op, intra-op and post-op/rehab protocols; data mining and analysis platform that enables hospitals to collect critical patient-reported outcomes data (ie, satisfaction with care, pain management, facility, etc) that can factor into the level of reimbursement provided for each procedure; and expert consulting services, digital health software solutions and personalized, patient-specific medical technologies and instruments that help hospitals improve patient outcomes, increase overall productivity and surgical efficiency by streamlining workflow, and enhance surgical and rehab protocols, per the release.

Signature Solutions will encapsulate our exclusive and extensive knowledge of the new healthcare landscape into the first end-to-end suite of clinical services, technologies, and proprietary analytical tools, which are designed to work seamlessly with the institutions’ existing infrastructure to improve quality outcomes, provide more efficient care and increase provider throughput,” says David Dvorak, president and CEO of Zimmer Biomet, in the release.
