QoC Health Was Created to Improve Patient Outcomes, Increase Patient Satisfaction, and Reduce Cost of Care Through Technology

Our team is comprised of experts in healthcare, business, and technology. That is what makes us uniquely qualified to build, test, and commercialize your digital health ideas.

Highlighted Project

A post-surgical monitoring application tested at Women’s College Hospital showed strong clinical outcomes and cost savings.

Women’s College Hospital was focused on reducing the total length of stay in their hospital while at the same time minimizing readmissions, increasing patient engagement in their own care, and increasing levels of satisfaction. The expedited discharge and at-home patient recovery left them with an absence of outcome data. This had become a barrier to quality improvement.

As such, Women’s College Hospital conducted a research study using a post-surgical monitoring application developed by QoC Health and achieved the following outcomes:

100%

Emerging Complications Detected

65%

Cost Savings

97%

Patient Satisfaction

170km

Reduction in Average Patient Travel
