Faster recovery thanks to a patient-specific treatment path
Johnson & Johnson Medical is committed to value-based healthcare. We implement programs with various service providers that are designed in such a way that all areas of a clinic are consistently improved in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. A program for optimizing patient pathways consists of: software technologies, training materials and tools including a patient app for smartphones. These instruments provide patients with tailored support and thereby improve the cost efficiency of the healthcare facilities involved.
Based on the principle of “enhanced recovery”, the patient is actively involved in his treatment and placed at the center in order to holistically strengthen and accelerate his recovery process. Before the planned procedure, the patient is fully informed by the attending physician so that he knows exactly what to expect. A tailor-made exercise program - often in groups for better motivation - keeps the patient fit before and after the operation.
Value Based Health Care also means adapting the surgical procedure to the patient: For example, local anesthesia is preferred to general anesthesia, minimally invasive surgical techniques lead to less wound pain and a shortened healing process. The patient can recover more quickly, which in turn shortens the hospital stay, lowers treatment costs and accelerates access to treatment for subsequent patients. The principles of improved recovery and the multidisciplinary support of the patient over the entire patient path enable significant cost reductions with greater benefit for the patient.
Johnson & Johnson Medical is continuously expanding its portfolio of services and solution programs for the implementation of value-oriented health principles. Specialized teams and innovative, high-quality products that have been tried and tested over many years form the basis for their use in partnership in health facilities in Switzerland. Our partnerships respond symbiotically to the needs of the institutions in order to achieve more for their patients in the long term.
