Brigham & Women's Hospital: "iGetBetter: A new way to recover from knee replacement surgery"

iGetBetter, Inc. is featured on Brigham and Women's Hospital website. An excerpt is below:

It’s so much more than just giving a patient instructions and letting them figure out what to do on their own,” says Dr. Wolfgang Fitz, an orthopedic surgeon at BWFH who specializes in knee replacement surgery. “The physician can be in control of what their patient is doing and adjust as necessary. If I see that a patient is able to fulfill the minimum requirements, I can raise them to the medium level. Then, if they can do that, I can advance them even further.

iGB's Annual Ski Day - another great event!

Click anywhere on the image to enlarge.

We had our 3rd annual iGetBetter Ski Day this past Monday, January 25.  As before, it was held at Loon Mountain in New Hampshire.  Participating were iGB team members and contractors with family and friends, as well as partners, hospital clients and investors.

It was a spectacular New England winter day, with temps in the mid-30s and not a cloud in the deep blue sky.  Although snowfall has been sparse so far this winter, the snow conditions were surprisingly good - Loon has a massive, high-tech snowmaking system, and the results were evident.  As we have in the past, we split into several groups of similar abilities guided by Loon ski instructors, and were well taken care of by the Loon customer service and food & beverage staff, with our own private meeting and dining area in Babe's Bar on the second floor of the Governor's Lodge.

As is typical on a Monday, there were very few other skiers on the mountain, and we could really let the skis go and fly!  Very unlike weekend skiing.  It was also a great opportunity for all the members and stakeholders of iGetBetter's ecosystem to get to know each other and make connections.  It is amazing how much one can learn and accomplish on a chair lift ride.

For me, the annual ski day is especially fun.   Not only is it satisfying as the CEO to get everyone together for such a positive and healthy outdoor activity, but also as a long time part-time Loon ski instructor, I get to be one of the ski school instructor/guides, and Loon pays me to go out and have fun with the iGB group!  (I am happy to report that I have received a raise since last year's event - from $11.38/hour to $11.63/hour.)

Major System Update and Feature Rollout

Today we released one of the most expansive updates to the iGetBetter™ system to date. It is the culmination of months of planning and hard work AND if all has gone right, you won’t even notice. Our development team has completely re-worked our backend database to make way for future functionality/development and added unparalleled speed and responsiveness to our system.

iGetBetter™ is the only functional and 100% agile care transition software on the market. We’ve used customer feedback to build a user-friendly, high-powered care delivery platform that can reduce workload and patient hospital readmissions.

One update we hope you don’t miss is the newly designed care plan creator and editor tool. This powerful tool is extremely responsive and boasts an automatic saving feature. If you are suddenly pulled away you don’t have to worry about lost work. We’ve added a timeline view so you can quickly assess a care plan and see how it will unfold over time. The “Stack” view allows you fast access to all the cards assigned to your patient or specific care plan you’d like to edit. You can apply quick filters to only view “reminders,” “activities” and/or “measurements” or single out a specific card using the “search” feature.

We’ve updated the presentation of patient information for easy updating and editing including editing a patient’s user name when necessary. In addition to major updates we’ve gone through the entire system and made smaller, less noticeable changes. For example, we’ve added dynamic scaling throughout the clinician interface so you view data more easily (patient list, patient alerts & view progress items).

If you’d like to learn more about the updates we’ve made please contact us today to set up a 30-minute presentation with our CMO, Dr. David Lebudzinski.
