WE HELP YOU IMPLEMENT ERAS®.

WE HELP YOU IMPLEMENT ERAS®.

We provide the software and training needed for you to implement ERAS® (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) Protocols as derived from the published guidelines from ERAS® Society.

The ERAS® Protocols are developed by the ERAS® Society, a not-for profit organization aiming to improve perioperative care and enhance postoperative recovery through implementation of evidence-based practice, audit, education and research.

We operate in collaboration with the ERAS® Society to:

• Provide the interactive and digital platform for evidence based ‘best practice’ management at your hospital – the ERAS® Interactive Audit System (EIAS)

• Provide training to you and other healthcare professionals through the ERAS® Implementation Program (EIP)

OUR PROMISE TO YOU

Healthcare best practice is our objective. We promise you three things when you apply the ERAS® Protocols:

• You will implement healthcare best practice. Fast. The ERAS® Society revises and approves adaptations to Encare’s digital platform.

• You will have the tools to change the way you work. We empower you to improve quality of care and reduce costs by enhancing evidence-based best practice.

• You will improve patient outcome and safety while increasing employee satisfaction.

CHANGE FOR THE BETTER – SEE PRACTICES TODAY AND TOMORROW

Healthcare today is handling millions of patients, saving lives, and improving quality of life. That is thanks to thousands of talented, experienced, and caring professionals in healthcare. By applying ERAS®, we know that you can perform even better. We can help you stop silo thinking and individual processes and instead work in multidisciplinary and multi-professional teams to compare and improve procedures.

Applying ERAS® Protocols will reduce complications and save costs.

And we have the proof of that

HEALTHCARE TODAY
SLIDE TO SEE TOMORROW
ISOLATED PROCEDURES
Each hospital, clinic and ward is responsible for collecting and comparing outcome – their own outcome.
SILO THINKING
All units have optimized workflow. Their own workflow. But patients move around and rely on communication and collaboration between workflows.
COMPLICATIONS
Lack of coordination and systematic evaluation lead to avoidable complications after surgery.
LENGTHY HOSPITALISATION
Complications lead to reduced quality of life for patients, dissatisfaction among healthcare staff and increased cost.
