A randomised controlled trial examining the effectiveness of a patient-centred web portal in optmising patient enablement and reducing unplanned 30-day readmissions to hospital

I am currently working with patients and clinicians to develop a web portal to support patients who are preparing for hip or knee arthroplasty in their preparation for surgery and their transition from hospital to home following surgery. When this technology is ready for use, a randomised cotrolled trial will be conducted to evaluate its effectiveness in enabling patients to manage their health and in reducing unplanned readmissions to hospital.
