Abstract

This paper describes the key features of a tool for remote preanaesthesia evaluation. These features include the production of custom informative material and the provision of tailored support for preoperative follow-up. The tool is expected to yield significant results: improved efficiency (making better use of distributed resources), enhanced fairness to citizens and direct access to personalised information and advice.
