Kaliber.ai brings meaningful change to surgery.
For surgeons. For patients. For healthcare. Everywhere.
The surgical journey
When a patient is scheduled for surgery, they receive pages of forms and pre-op instructions. Overwhelmed patients often look up their surgeries online – only to wind up doomscrolling through distressing, misleading information.
The patient anxiously waits several weeks to meet with their surgeon again, building up a backlog of concerns – more than a surgeon can fully address in a brief pre-op consultation.
Surgical procedures aren't always straightforward, due to unexpected findings. Surgical workarounds take
additional time, increasing stress on the surgeon and the patient – and delaying other scheduled surgeries.
The surgeon explains any concerns and aftercare to the groggy patient and their family – but they're often distracted and focused on getting home. The patient is discharged with pages of post-surgical instructions they may not fully understand, and that may not cover their unique case.
Key findings from surgery can easily get lost in the shuffle of paperwork between the surgical team, the patient, their family, physical therapists, and healthcare providers. This can lead to misalignments in care that slow the patient's recovery.
High stress contributes to surgeon burnout, leaving healthcare systems with fewer qualified surgeons to carry the patient load – which means patients end up living with pain longer while awaiting surgery.
Complications mean that at best, standard physical therapy may be slower than expected. If the patient still isn't improving, additional treatment and/or surgery may be needed. This follow-up care can be painful and expensive for the patient, stressful for the surgeon, and can stretch healthcare system resources.
On the Kaliber patient portal, the patient can get acquainted with their surgeon, watch surgeon-approved videos explaining their procedure, and review useful pre-op instructions. That way, they enter the OR feeling informed, confident, and prepared for surgery.
The surgeon performs surgery with assistance from Kaliber's Inhance engine, which can help identify anatomy, spot anomalies, and ensure that measurements and landmarks are precise. This helps the surgeon perform consistent, accurate surgeries with less stress
The patient and their family can leave the hospital without worrying about the paperwork – they can review their surgeon's aftercare advice anytime on the Kaliber portal. Clearly labeled before and after images from their surgery help patients explain their surgery to family and physical therapists.
Physical therapists and healthcare providers use the patient portal to create a unified care plan for effective, efficient recovery. Pain, stress, and costs are minimized for the patient, the surgeon, and the healthcare system – so that there are more available resources to share with more patients in need.
