Rational Surgical Solutions is an agile company, staffed with experienced professionals who are poised to find solutions to problems existing in patient care today. The company is developing a portfolio of products that will help physicians, surgeons and advanced practitioners leverage mHealth technology to improve patient care and education; revolutionize the informed consent process; increase the efficiency of healthcare providers; and reduce costs.
The Rati-Fi® Informed Consent System educates and engages patients so that they can make better, informed choices about their medical treatment and recovery. The platform improves patient compliance which makes them more compliant with after-care instructions and can result in better outcomes. For physicians, the Rati-Fi® System helps improve practice efficiency, helps practices meet "Meaningful Use" criteria, and reduces the risk of malpractice claims.
The Rati-Fi® System uses high-quality animations and plain language to thoroughly explain the patient's treatment and surgical options. Video is an ideal format for education as it illustrates concepts that may be difficult to understand. Patients' comprehension is tested using an on-line quiz. Their answers can be used as the basis for further discussion with their healthcare provider.
Studies show that making patient education materials more visual helps build patient-physician communications, enhances patient education, and improves the informed consent process because patients are better able to grasp the implications of their condition, prognosis, and treatment options. Visual materials can increase patient satisfaction and treatment compliance, while helping to reduce the amount of time a physician needs to spend explaining diseases and treatments
Research shows that patients that understand their postcare treatment regime show better compliance and have lower re-admission rates --- as much as 30% lower! The Rati-Fi System includes the Surgery CareSite portal, which allows patients and their caregivers to review discharge instructions and patient-physician consultations from home.
Meaningful Use is a CMS Medicare and Medicaid program that awards incentives for using certified electronic health records (EHRs) to improve patient care. The Rati-Fi® System is fully digital and stores a recording of the patient-doctor consultation and a copy of the signed consent form on a HIPAA-compliant server.
All PHI is encrypted,stored, and secured with Microsoft Azure HIPAA-compliant cloud services
The Rati-Fi® System integrates with practice management software and electronic health records using the Rati-Fi ConnectTM HL7 interface.
At least 20 percent of all patients who are admitted to a U.S. hospital make a repeat visit within 30 days of discharge. Many of these visits are unnecessary. Patients who have a clear understanding of their after-hospital care instructions, including how to take their medicines and when to make follow-up appointments are 30% less likely to be readmitted. The Rati-Fi System includes access to the PreOp discharge series which patients and caregivers can watch on the Surgery CareSite portal.
