This fully integrated technology is supported by the TracPatch Success team, allowing providers to customize their workflow to be as involved with the implementation of TracPatch as needed. The TracPatch Success Team assists in onboarding and educating the provider’s team and patients, reviewing patient trends to ensure compliance and monitoring adverse events throughout the episode of care.
“We are looking forward to working with Vizient and their member organizations to improve patient satisfaction and surgical outcomes through the use of the TracPatch Knee products,” shares Colleen Gray, CEO of TracPatch Health.

TracPatch Health helps to maximize the probability of a successful episode of care by focusing on key metrics for patient compliance and providing early detection for intervention of adverse events, such as arthrofibrosis and infection. This results in reduced readmissions, cost containment, and better patient satisfaction with optimal clinical outcomes.
