Dr. Burnikel is able to remotely evaluate a patient’s recovery and monitor the healing of surgical wounds. Patients greatly benefit from the convenience and saved travel time that can lead to patients missing important appointments. This program also gives providers an opportunity to identify potential complications earlier in order to improve recovery, decrease costs and prevent avoidable ER admissions.
