Introducing the New Face of Recovery

Adam Robinson
February 29, 2024

We are excited to announce the launch of our redesigned patient-facing mobile app, now available for both iOS and Android users. This redesign is more than just a fresh interface; it's a reflection of our commitment to constantly innovate on behalf of our members, helping them prepare for and recover from surgery with unprecedented ease and effectiveness.

Why Redesign?

At Surgery Hero, we understand that undergoing surgery can be a daunting experience. That’s why we have always been dedicated to providing support and resources to make this journey as smooth and stress-free as possible. The decision to redesign our app was driven by feedback from our community and to lay the foundations for our AI-powered strategy. Our goal was to create a more intuitive, engaging, and supportive experience that meets the evolving needs of our members.

Harnessing Behavioural Science for Enhanced Recovery

Central to our redesign is the application of behavioural science principles to drive positive behaviour changes. We recognise that recovery is not just a physical process but a psychological one as well. By integrating strategies that influence behaviour patterns, we aim to motivate, engage, and support our users through every step of their pre- and post-surgery journey. From setting achievable goals to fostering a mindset conducive to recovery, our app is designed to guide users towards making choices that enhance their recovery outcomes.

Key Features of the Redesigned App

  • A Personalised Programme: Every surgery and every individual is unique. Our app now offers a more personalised programme tailored to your specific needs, goals, and type of surgery. This custom approach ensures that you receive the most relevant and effective guidance possible.
  • Dedicated 1-on-1 Support: Recovery can be a complex and emotional process, requiring more than just generic advice. With Surgery Hero, you're paired with an expert human health coach who's with you every step of the way. Whether you prefer texting, a phone call, or video chat, your health coach is ready to provide the support you need, when you need it.
  • On-demand Self-care Resources: Our comprehensive library of evidence-based resources covers everything from surgery preparation to nutrition, sleep, mindfulness, exercise, and substance use. These resources are designed to empower you with the knowledge and tools you need to take charge of your recovery.

The redesigned Surgery Hero app is more than just a tool; it's your companion on the road to recovery. The mobile app is a testament to our team's commitment to placing member needs at the forefront and thinking big on how to improve the end-to-end member experience. I am incredibly proud of the hard work our team has put into bringing this new experience to life!
