CONNECTED CARE BEYOND THE HOSPITAL Surgeries are taxing, complicated business. And precision is the key word. There is no scope for errors and that applies to pre- and post-surgical care too.

There are several reasons for this, including the inability of healthcare institutions to constantly monitor post-operative deterioration as well as patients’ inability to visit the healthcare center for post-operative followups.
