Electronic pre-operative assessment workflow
Automate your processes to collect patient assessments quickly and speed up surgical readiness and administrative tasks.
Digitally transforming healthcare
Pre-operative assessments ensure all patients are fit and ready for elective surgery — supporting theatre lists to run smoothly and without delay. Assessments are lengthy paper-based forms that patients usually complete with a clinician over multiple face-to-face or telephone appointments. This process can be time-consuming and costly to both the NHS and patients.
Fortunately, our electronic pre-operative assessment workflow (ePOA) streamlines the surgical consultation to theatre booking process — reducing the administrative burden on staff and improving the patient experience.
Customise your workflows.
Design custom task-based workflows that replicate and streamline existing paper-based processes within your organisation, eliminating the hassle and costs associated.
Make data-driven decisions.
Access a reporting dashboard that supports better clinical decision-making, patient safety and reporting. Use data visualisation tools to identify service bottlenecks, monitor and spot trends in your data.
Improve the patient experience.
Enable patients to quickly review and complete digital assessments from their homes, reducing face-to-face visits in clinics or hospitals. Patients can access a user-friendly interface on multiple devices, which requires no login or registration.
Connect with existing systems.
Integrate ePOA into your wider system landscape, like patient administration and electronic patient record systems — to enable the recording of centralised and accurate patient information. Our ePOA also can be used regionally as a hub across an integrated care system.
Reduce administrative burdens.
Make significant pre-operative pathway process improvements while enabling clinicians to consult with more patients. Proactively manage patient surgical backlogs. For example, clinicians can suggest health or fitness interventions to help at-risk patients prepare for surgery.

Training and support
Need help with training?
We can support your Trust's training and implementation teams onsite or virtually before going live. We also provide end-user training for trusts without their own training teams and onsite refresher training, e-learning tools and quick guides for all staff. Either way, we'll work with you before delivering any training to agree on objectives and prerequisites for delegates.
We provide standard service desk support from Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. You can raise issues by phone and email, and we record and appropriately triage all requests. We'll inform you of your progress within the agreed SLAs. 24/7 support is available on request.
Our ePOA service plans
We offer a range of plans to suit your healthcare needs and your organisation's size. If you can't find what you're looking for, we can create bespoke plans and offer full integration support.
How ePOA is helping Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust
Served around 50,000 patients annually
Saved around £30,000 in printed letter and pre-operative booklet costs
Significantly reduced administration and annual costs of £57,000 per department (equivalent to 3 full-time staff) to store, move and track paper documents
Saved registered nurses 40 percent of the time conducting phone assessments
Improved patient experience. For example:
Clinical tests are completed earlier in the pathway before patients receive a phone call
Patients report they get more value from phone assessments focusing on pre-operative management (not their medical history)
Reduced admin and annual costs of £57,000 per department.
