Rapid Recovery™ with Zimmer Biomet


At Zimmer Biomet we have the mission to alleviate pain and improve the quality of life for people around the world. Rapid Recovery supports this mission by aiming at optimising all aspects of patient care. In order to achieve the best possible outcome, we focus on addressing the patient and staff needs before, during and after hospital stay.

That is why we have developed Rapid Recovery, our established pathway optimisation programme, empowered by a clinician advisory board with outstanding expertise in fast-track surgery. Over the past 20 years we have delivered impactful and sustainable change across Europe through multidisciplinary collaboration and clearly defined standards.

Our change management experts partner with hospitals in an effort to support executives in the delivery of high level patient care, improving staff satisfaction and improving surgical outcomes and financial performance. We engage with staff at all levels across the pathway to establish and develop a multidisciplinary team, focused on creating efficient pathways that provide the highest levels of patient care with enhanced patient outcomes (PROMs) and patient satisfaction (PREMs).
