Abstract: Healthcare delivery is facing multiple orthogonal challenges around escalating costs and providing quality care, especially in OECD countries. This research examines the opportunity to leverage Health 4.0 technology and techniques to address the post-operative discharge phase of the patient journey. In so doing it serves to proffer a technology enabled model that supports not only a quality care experience post discharge but also prudent management to minimize costly unplanned readmissions and thereby subscribe to a value-based care paradigm. The chosen context is stoma patients but the solution can be easily generalized to other contexts. Next steps include the conducting of clinical trials to establish proof of concept, validity, and usability.
