Abstract

Habilitation services, notably prehabilitation and rehabilitation, are important components of patients’ surgical care. Contrary to traditional reactive healthcare models, proactive healthcare in the form of prehabilitation has shown promise in facilitating surgical patients’ recoveries beyond rehabilitation alone. This paper examines prehabilitation from the perspective of seven healthcare professionals, and relies on their interviews to better understand prehabilitation and how technology can be integrated into its processes. Specifically, we offer descriptions for why patients participate in prehabilitation, how clinicians deliver prehabilitation, and how technology could be utilized during these processes.
