Kortex and Bot MD partner to launch first A.I. powered WhatsApp  neurosurgical patient monitoring platform

10 March 2023

Kortex has partnered Bot MD to launch the first A.I. powered neurosurgical patient monitoring platform that is integrated with WhatsApp, enabling patients to easily self report their post surgical symptoms while automating alerts to Kortex's clinical team to attend to patients who need help.

This neurosurgical patient monitoring service will be available to all patients of Kortex clinics in National Hospital Surabaya, Rumah Sakit Persada Malang and its newest clinic in Rumah Sakit JIH Yogyakarta.

This Bot MD Care platform will be used to monitor cervical, hemifacial spasm, lumbal, trigeminal neuralgia and tumour patients after their surgery. Patients will receive automatic reminders in WhatsApp to report their symptoms, wound status and key clinical parameters such as pain of surgical wound, bleeding, and swelling for post lumbal surgery patients. When patients report abnormal symptoms, the platform will automatically send alerts to Kortex's clinical team so they can help these patients. Patients will also receive reminders in WhatsApp to return to the clinic for their follow-up medical reviews.

“As a neurosurgeon, I am very excited about being able to use this platform to monitor all of our neurosurgery patients and allow us to closely monitor their recovery and deliver even better quality of care. The best part is that the system is integrated into WhatsApp so that our patients can conveniently report their post surgical recovery to our Clinical Team without having to download another application.”

"Bot MD's patient monitoring and engagement platform has been designed to help clinics and hospitals care for their patients for a broad range of clinical conditions post discharge. We are honored to partner with Kortex to provide their patients with an automated post-neurosurgical monitoring platform through WhatsApp and look forward to expanding our platform to include more clinical specialties in the future."
