Here at The Surgical Center at COG we strive to create innovative patient solutions. Force Therapeutics is a communication platform to help guide Columbia Orthopaedic Group patients through their surgical process for better communication, more effective recovery, and better outcomes.
We have implemented this mobile communication tool to be more hands-on and proactive through our patients' surgical journey. There are both digital and in-person services with direct access to your care team. No need to wait on hold, play phone tag and transfer between departments for access to your physician. Now your care needs are at the tip of your finger tips - from your mobile device.
- Electronic forms and documents
- Direct communication with your care team
- Observation check-ins
- Ability to securely send pictures and videos to your care team
Medical Director and President of SCCOG, Bus Tarbox, MD, adds "I'm asking patients to participate in their care and help make us better physicians" when commenting on Force's impact on their patient success outcomes.
As much as 90% of patient care happens outside the clinic, proving the importance of supporting patients both before and after their procedures. Here at The Surgical Center at COG, our surgeons and staff use video and daily digitized content, customized to each patient's recovery process, including after surgery. As we improve our patient/physician communications through digital platforms, our goal is to achieve better outcomes for our patient's treatment plan from start to finish.
