Digital pre-op assessments

Xyla Elective Care supports clients to eliminate elective backlogs and reduce waiting lists.rnrnOur digitally enabled pre-operative assessment reduces surgical and anaesthesia risk, minimises cancellations, and optimises patient flow, leading to better outcomes. We collect, process, and risk assess pre-operative patient data via the MyPreOp platform. Patients can be at home or in hospital and our nurses are there to support them when help is needed. We communicate seamlessly with the local medical team to prioritise lists and interventions.

Our service enables you to:

  • Identify patients ready for surgery at the earliest stage
  • Reduce pressure on clinical staff allowing them to prioritise more complex and demanding cases
  • Support patient cohorts with specialised pre-operative care plans managed by our team such as weight management and smoking cessation
  • Reduce recovery times and deliver improved patient outcomes
