Nottingham City Hospitals have explored the capability of Flo in enabling self-management of surgical patient post-operatively extending patient follow-up to 30 days (high risk period) and fill the void between hospital and community care with the specific aims below:


1. Earlier identification of problems post discharge
2. Ability to coordinate need to re-admit / avoidance of unnecessary readmission
3. Reduction in phone calls for patients that are well
4. Increased patient satisfaction
5. Reassurance that hospital follow-up patients early after discharge

Patient satisfaction was high and the telephone calls reduced to the Nurse Practitioner. Work is ongoing to further simplify the design of the protocol used however it was deemed that Flo could be very effective in the context of post-operative care.
