Rapid Recovery Benefits

Rapid Recovery is unique in providing benefits not only for the patient, but also for the care-givers and the hospital.

Increased patient satisfaction

One patient noted, “It puts your mind at rest and prepares you for what’s ahead and how to tackle it.”  Increased understanding of the joint replacement procedure enables patients to be actively involved in recovery.


Increased professional satisfaction

Many health-care professionals active in the programme comment on how much better inter-disciplinary communication is as a result.  All working towards the same goal and planning standardised protocols has enabled a smooth transition from pre-operative to peri- and post-operative care


Optimised medical outcomes

Consistent processes focused on optimising medical outcomes lead to a quicker recovery and discharge.  As a result the risk of infection is lowered, patients recover to the same degree in less time and more surgeries can be performed. 


Increased referrals

Rapid Recovery hospitals are attractive for GPs to refer their patients to.  Using ‘Patient Choice’, patients are choosing the hospital where someone they know had a positive experience. 


Improved economics

The programme promotes efficiency in all areas.  With less delays, an increased turnover of cases and fewer complications, costs are reduced.
