Recent research has shown mobile apps offer an economically sound and effective way to monitor patients, however the potential of this technology is still underutilised.

Visiting international expert, Dr Heather Yeo, will share her recent pilot study of an app developed in conjunction with Cornell Tech to track patients in the post-operative period. The app is aimed at decreasing length of stay, decreasing postoperative readmission by improving patient monitoring and complication management and improving return to functional status and overall wellbeing after surgery.
