No need to reinvent the wheel
Professor Tara Rampal and the team at Phase-B C.I.C (a not-for-profit company) spent 4-years researching, designing, and developing the telehealth cancer and surgical prehabilitation service, QuestPrehab™. The service is proven, published, and successfully used in the NHS. To view an example of where the service is being used, please view the Kent & Medway Cancer Prehab.
QuestPrehab™ can be commissioned and used in any healthcare setting in the UK. The service does not require any modifications to pre-existing infrastructure, processes, patient pathways, or systems; it can be seamlessly inserted into any healthcare provider. QuestPrehab™ can be tailored and white labelled with the commissioning NHS name, thus becoming part of the local services.
Results of the QuestPrehab™ service include faster recovery and significant overall improvements in health-related quality of life for patients who need to prepare for surgery or cancer treatment.
