STREAMD IN ACTION
“We know clinical teams are being asked to do more with less. At a time when physicians wish they could contact their patients on a daily basis, StreaMD makes it possible.“
Dr. Kevin Campbell CEO & Co-Founder of StreaMD
How StreaMD Works
StreaMD uses artificial intelligence to send your patients pre-programmed text-messages and videos,
customised to match your tone, treatment preferences, timeline and care instructions.
The system’s effectiveness lies in its ease of use for patients, clinic staff and surgeons, and its ability to engage patients,
reduce clinical workload, and mitigate surgeon burnout.
Messages start 2-4 weeks before surgery and continue 4-6 weeks after surgery but the duration is entirely up to you.
Our SMS system can handle over 350 topics and questions on pain management, recovery, physiotherapy, wellbeing, and more.
Daily support helps set recovery expectations and answer common patient questions so they are less likely to contact the practice or hospital.
Patients only see your name and brand and can begin immediately by typing “JOIN” to your unique StreaMD number.
The service only takes us a few days to create and all patient support material is provided by us.
This is a marvellous service to patients. It has helped me from being confused and kept me on track before and after my complete knee replacement surgery. It is like an assistant advising and reminding what is good for me and what would be right for me to do. I have found this extremely helpful.

- Creating a talking point for patients amongst their friends and family
- Prompting patients to give feedback in any form you like including online websites
- Providing patients with the reassurance they need, without extra workload for the practice

The StreaMD Difference
Healthcare practices across the world have been implementing mobile apps and platforms in an attempt to remedy the
common pain points surrounding patient engagement. However, these attempts often strain clinical resources
or lack the conversational intelligence required to drive meaningful engagement.
Patients’ expectations are evolving and they want meaningful conversational interactions that are not confined to an app or portal.
Apps and web based portals

- Only 3% of apps are used after 30 days*

- A RUSH university study found patient take-up of the leading orthopaedic mobile app was 3 – 4 patients/mth*
