Ultramed® is a 3 year old company providing ‘health technology for people’. Its initial product was MyPreOp from which a suite of integrated pre-procedure assessment programs has been developed under the trademark, Ultraprep. These are online assessments that patients complete themselves, and as they “own” their Ultramed account they share their information with relevant healthcare providers. The programs have advanced branching clinical algorithms where additional questions are asked if required from the initial responses. There is clinical decision support, so the programs suggest which tests and actions should be considered in the preparation of the patient for their procedure. The programs produce a complex Clinical Summary Report where the important information is summarised on the initial page of the electronic report, along with the tests and actions; these are considered, verified and actioned by qualified healthcare professionals. Agile development was used from the outset so the program is now on version 77.
