Smith & Nephew (LSE:SN, NYSE:SNN), the global medical technology business, announces the launch of a new digital platform that enables orthopaedic surgeons, for the first time, to remotely track their patients’ real-time healing progress and satisfaction without requiring a clinical visit.

In partnership with Wellframe Inc., a mobile-enabled care management solution provider, Smith & Nephew utilises HealthMeasures’s Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS)® Computer-Adaptive Tests (CATs) to collect data from patients by measuring their recovery at regular time points.
