Open Medical has announced the introduction of Pathpoint eTrauma at the Medway NHS Foundation Trust.
The award-winning system is set to transform and enhance orthopaedic trauma procedures throughout the entire department with its unmatched capabilities.
Through Open Medical’s partnership with DePuy Synthes, the orthopaedic company of Johnson & Johnson MedTech, the Trust was able to maximise the value of their use of DePuy Synthes’ surgical products with Open Medical’s platform Pathpoint eTrauma via Johnson & Johnson MedTech’s Value-Based Healthcare offering.
By replacing legacy systems like whiteboards, excel spreadsheets, and word documents with a cloud-based digital trauma coordination platform, Pathpoint eTrauma will transform the way patients are managed.
eTrauma, developed by practising orthopaedic surgeons, uses a user-centric approach and covers every stage of the patient journey, from injury to rehabilitation.
It centralises and enhances orthopaedic trauma care by automating the referral process and allowing for effective coordination across multidisciplinary teams, providing visibility across the entire patient pathway.
Commenting on the launch, Dr Michael Shenouda, Chief Commercial Officer at Open Medical, said:
“We are excited to share the implementation of Pathpoint eTrauma at Medway NHS Foundation Trust.
“This innovative solution marks another important step forward in our mission to empower healthcare
providers with sustainable, data-driven care.
“Clinicians can now shift their attention away from time-consuming, non-clinical tasks and concentrate wholeheartedly on the well-being of their patients.”
Mr. Howard Cottam, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Clinical Director for Surgery, said: “Since we implemented Pathpoint eTrauma, there have been noticeable improvements in our operational efficiency within our trauma and orthopaedics department.
“And when we combine it with the BOA and GIRFT guidance for non-ambulatory fragility fractures
embedded in the system, we can expect even better outcomes.”
