E-POS is Novacair's preoperative screening. Read more about what exactly E-POS is here.
The patient receives a secure email containing the questionnaire and animation videos to support informed consent.
Once the patient is completed, the anesthesiologist determines the appropriate follow-up consultation based on the advice and report from E-POS.
It is important that the questionnaire is accessible to all target groups. Think of people with an immigrant background, the elderly but also the low-literate.
Therefore, there are several ways to complete the questionnaire:
Would you like to complete the questionnaire yourself? You can request that here.
By default, the questionnaire asks all necessary questions required for a safe preoperative examination. Relatively healthy patients are asked the minimum required questions. In patients with multiple underlying health problems, further questions are asked as needed.
It is also possible to add your own questions for a nursing consultation, for example.
A sample questionnaire can be downloaded at this link.
It is possible to see E-POS live in operation at our clients. If desirable, NovaCair can mediate this.

Saving E-POS depends on the current process and patient population. In FTE it varies between 30% and 60%. It is possible to have this mapped out without obligation through a 60-minute conversation. After this conversation, the following deliverables will be provided:
You can request this call via this link. Don't want a conversation yet but want more insight into the savings? Then it is also possible to fill out the savings calculator here.
E-POS has been scientifically validated by the Amsterdam UMC. The results have been published in The Journal of Clinical Anesthesia. The study can be downloaded via this link.
There is also ongoing research on Informed Consent, among other things, by Erasmus MC. The results of this will be published when the research is completed.
Would you like to use E-POS for scientific research yourself? This is often possible at no cost. Then check out this page (there should be a new page here where people can read more about this).
E-POS is used in several hospitals and ZBCs. Experiences of these customers can be read back on our customer page.
The procurement process varies by hospital. It is wise to make preparations prior to hooking up several colleagues from support departments.
