The Reconstructive Orthopedic Center (ROC) introduces the first ambulatory orthopedic surgical consultation program called the ASAP (Ambulatory Surgical Assessment Program). Designed as a web-based application, ROC Board Certified/Fellowship trained surgeons can be immediately reached for expert consultation on a 24/7 basis, with a mere touch of a button on your web or mobile browser.
The connection provides an instant telepresence solution that allows a cost effective, face-to-face interaction between the surgeon and emergency or urgent care provider by having actual patient clinical images and radiographs viewed. This allows for instantaneous assessment and an immediate treatment plan to be developed and deployed for maximum patient quality outcomes.
When indicated, the ASAP consultation will offer either a routine follow-up or immediate surgical intervention, when necessary through the ROC Urgent Care Program. This program allows any patient who is referred from an outside urgent or emergency center to the ROC clinic to be processed for immediate surgical correction the same day of injury or at the latest, within 24 hours of injury.
