About this project
The problem we solve:
Our platform and service are designed to bring the perioperative surgical home paradigm closer to reality by increasing patients' ease of access to surgeons and anesthesiologists via electronic modalities (computers, smartphones, etc.), reducing unnecessary hospital visits, reducing day of surgery cancellations, and increasing overall patient satisfaction with the surgical experience.
About our solution:
Pegasus: Perioperative Visit will allow patients to fill out pre-op evaluations at the surgeon's office or from the comfort of their home. The anesthesiologist will have access to this information and decide if the patient then needs to come to the hospital or surgery center for further workup. This program will also allow continuous patient monitoring if needed as well as the ability to communicate with healthcare providers electronically during the pre- and postoperative periods. Progress to date:
Thus far, Pegasus is only an idea in the planning stages birthed during an Entrepreneurship class at Tulane's Business School.
