Your personalized care pathway
Through the mymobility app, your surgeon and care team are able to provide a customized care plan that will best fit your personal care and recovery process. To-do lists will let you know which activities have been assigned to you each day, and you will receive notifications periodically reminding you of the remaining items. Exercises are interactive, so you can follow along and note the level of difficulty with each exercise. Your progress will be tracked throughout your course of care by recording the number of completed repetitions.
Connect throughout your journey
Constant connectivity provides unmatched resources throughout your course of care. You will hear from your care team periodically throughout your surgical journey. Care plans start preoperatively and include both pre- and postoperative exercises, education and questionnaires. Reminders will be sent to your iPhone and Apple Watch for you to report to your care team about how you are doing and feeling during the process. This offers a convenient way to complete and submit surveys on time and helps members of your surgical care team stay informed so they can track your recovery progress.
Powered by data
At the end of each exercise routine, you will see a summary screen that allows you to review stats related to your overall progress. With the mymobility app, tracking your level of engagement with education and questionnaires is made easy. Data that tracks your progression is automatically sent to your surgeon’s dashboard every time you open the mymobility app, allowing you to connect to your surgeon and care team throughout every step of your surgical journey.
You will have direct communication with your surgeon and care team through the use of the app messaging feature that allows you to ask questions related to your health or medical condition, including your activity, care plan prognosis and doctor’s orders. Photos may also be shared, such as a quick snapshot of your surgical incision site for healing assessment by your surgeon and care team. The team will receive progress reports and be able to monitor your progress remotely through the use of a clinician dashboard.
