What is SurgiTrak?
SurgiTrak is a way of sending updates to your family members and friends on your status as you move through pre-op to surgery to recovery. These updates are sent via text message or email to a mobile device such as a smart phone, tablet, or any other computer or laptop with an internet connection. Your family and friends get information about your surgery, no matter where they are. For family members and friends who are waiting for you at the hospital, SurgiTrak gives them the freedom to leave the waiting area without the worry of missing important updates on how you're doing.
How SurgiTrak works
With your permission, a SurgiTrak invitation will be emailed to you sometime within a week of your date of surgery. The email will give you a link to an enrollment form that you can use to enter the mobile phone numbers and/or email addresses of those who have agreed to get updates from us during your surgery.
The information in the updates will be HIPAA compliant, meaning your privacy will be protected. Nothing patient-specific about you will be sent – the updates will not include your name, the kind of surgery you're having, etc. For your privacy, only information regarding your surgery status will be sent, such as the following:
- Patient in Pre-Op
- Patient in Holding
- Patient in Operating Room
- Patient in Recovery
- Patient Out of Recovery
- Patient in Room, or Patient Discharged Home
How to sign up for SurgiTrak
