Project Objectives

Tens of thousands of cardiac and vascular surgeries (CaVS) are performed on seniors in Canada (CAN) and the United Kingdom (UK) each year to improve survival, relieve disease symptoms, and improve health-related quality of life (HRQL). However, chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP), undetected (or delays in detecting) hemodynamic compromise, complications, and related poor functional status are major problems for substantial numbers of patients during the recovery process. To tackle this problem, we are part of an international, cross-cutting innovation community with the aim to refine and test the effectiveness of an eHealth-enabled service delivery intervention, which combines remote monitoring, education, and self-management training (SMT) to optimize recovery outcomes and experience of seniors undergoing CaVS in CAN and the UK.

Impact Statement

With this research, we’ll be able to move from futuristic concepts to real-life care that’s in widespread use, based on evidence of real-world impact. 'We are fortunate to be working with drivers of eHealth innovation including our lead technology partner, Phillips Canada, along with QoC Health, a patient-engagement platform; XAHIVE, a secure communications service, and mPath, a mobile application developer. Looking ahead, we have the opportunity to reduce the global risk of serious complications following cardiac and vascular surgery by making continuous patient monitoring and virtual support, from hospital to home, a reality. SMArTVIEW’s wireless information system will enable specially trained nurses to connect with patients following their departure from hospital - through the use of wireless devices such as tablets and smartphones  to provide postoperative care and medical advice to aid patients’ recovery.
