How Digital Engagement and RTM Can Save $600+ Per Total Knee Patient

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the most commonly performed total joint replacement surgery, with over 600,000 surgeries occurring annually.1 Under value-based care, hospitals, health systems, and private practices are challenged to manage high volumes of TKA patients in a way that reduces costs, balances clinical capacity, and maintains quality of care. But insufficient patient education and support can leave patients underprepared for surgery and recovery, increasing complications and readmissions.

Implementing a digital therapy program that includes remote therapeutic monitoring (RTM), telehealth, and patient education can help your clinicians better manage and motivate patients throughout their total joint episode, reducing the cost of care, boosting outcomes, and elevating patient satisfaction.
