PVC-RAM

Official Title

Post Discharge After Surgery Virtual Care with Remote Automated Monitoring Technology

Status

Ongoing

Overview

The PVC-RAM trial is a multicentre, parallel group, superiority, randomized controlled trial to determine the effect of virtual care with remote automated monitoring (RAM) technology, compared to standard care on the 30-day risk of acute-hospital care (i.e., a composite of hospital re-admission and emergency department or urgent-care centre visit), in adults who have undergone semi-urgent, urgent, or emergency surgery.

The trial will also determine, during the first 30 days, the effect of virtual care with RAM technology on several other outcomes, including: Hospital re-admission and ER visit; COVID-19 infection; medication error detection; delirium; sepsis; acute heart failure; and death.
