Dr. Sauerbrey has taken the lead on delivering the highest levels of patient satisfaction with Arthrex’s Surgical Outcomes System™ (SOS). SOS™ is a post-surgical survey system that allows Dr. Sauerbrey to remotely monitor patients’ pain, function, and well-being after treatment. These surveys provide valuable data to your physician that confirms your treatment is successful. In between follow-up visits, the patient will be asked to complete a survey to better engage them in their recovery and posttreatment expectations.
What is SOS™?
The Surgical Outcomes System™ is an orthopaedic and sports medicine global registry that is cloud-based and tablet-friendly. The intuitive platform enables surgeons to easily collect and analyze patient outcomes and procedures to address the demands of evidence-based medicine. The SOS™ global registry allows surgeons to remotely monitor their patients’ outcomes over two years through patient-reported outcome questionnaires and clinician reported objective measures. The SOS will automatically email surveys to patients at predefined time points.
The primary purpose of the SOS™ is for monitoring and evaluating the outcomes of various standards of care orthopaedic and sports medicine medical procedures, leading to the development of evidence-based protocols for treating patients.
It is important to complete your surveys in a timely manner in order for your surgeon to accurately monitor posttreatment progression to normal daily living. Your information is only available to your surgeon and staff who collect and care for your data.
