Open Medical teams up with DePuy Synthes to enhance patient care pathways in trauma & orthopaedics


'Leading Trauma, Together'


Open Medical Ltd is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with DePuy Synthes, the Orthopaedics Company of Johnson & Johnson to provide best-in-breed digital patient care pathways in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery. The partnership will allow providers and clinicians to deliver digital transformation of existing care pathways, using Open Medical’s patient pathway management software solutions, including the market-leading Pathpoint eTrauma platform, alongside DePuy Synthes’ industry-leading orthopaedic medical device technology.

From March 2021, providers using DePuy Synthes’ surgical products will be able to complement their purchases with Open Medical’s cloud-based Pathpoint software platform through Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies’ Value-Based Healthcare offering, available via the Total Orthopaedic Solutions2 (TOS-2) Commercial Framework for NHS Trusts across the UK.

Open Medical has a sterling track record of providing digital transformation of clinical care pathways across multiple specialties, with the Pathpoint eTrauma pathway management system for Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery being utilised in over 25 NHS Trusts in the UK.


Key benefits from collaboration

  • Coordination of care - Pathpoint eTrauma’s cloud-based software enables coordination of patient care through real-time collaboration between distributed clinical and non-clinical teams.

  • Improved patient triage and tracking - Pathpoint eTrauma helps triage and prioritise daily workloads, enabling seamless planning of patient care through integrated care pathways, regardless of location, and transcending geographical boundaries.

  • Efficiency savings - Pathpoint eTrauma’s proven benefits include saving up to 20 hours of clinicians time per month, and reducing the costs of inpatient episodes from a 12% decrease in trauma admissions, totalling up to £1.6 million in savings per year. Moreover, further benefits include an up to 50% reduction in injury-to-theatre time for trauma patients.

  • Data capture and data-driven care - Using advanced natural language processing, clinical information is immediately coded at the point of entry using the internationally recognised SNOMED-CT terminology, providing significantly improved reporting capabilities and quickly generating meaningful care metrics. This data can be utilised in a meaningful way to support future service planning and improvement.
