“Engaging & empowering patients for better health outcomes.”

Research has shown that patients who are informed and engaged before a medical procedure experience less anxiety and have better health outcomes. At times of stress, such as during a serious medical consultation, studies have shown that it can be difficult to retain all of the necessary information presented to you. This is why Upper GI Surgery has partnered with Siara Health, to ensure the highest level of quality care is given to our patients, pre and post-surgery.

How does Siara Health work?

As a patient of Upper GI Surgery, you will be provided with your own unique login details for the Siara Health digital platform. The sophisticated software securely stores information such as your surgery date, notifications for actions such as commencing a pre-operative diet, all in one secure space.

Be Informed
Access all of the information you need for your upcoming surgery and post-op recovery care in one place, at any time you need.

Stay Organised
We will notify you via personalised alerts (SMS and/or email) when you need to take action pre-surgery and during your rehabilitation, helping you to stay on track.

Easy to Use
The program has been designed to guide you through your health care journey in a way that is easy to navigate.

Access Resources (Patients Only)

Each program is unique to the procedure the patient is receiving from Upper GI Surgery. So for example, if you are scheduled to have sleeve gastrectomy surgery, you will gain access to videos, diagrams and selected resources to ensure you have all of the information that you need, specific to that procedure.

Siara Health Availability

If you are an Upper GI Surgery bariatric patient (from late 2019 onwards), you will have received an invite to connect to Siara Health. All new Upper GI Surgery bariatric patients are provided access to the Siara Health platform, as part of our commitment to making the patient journey a positive and easy experience.

If you are experiencing technical difficulties or are having trouble logging into Siara Health, please call Customer Support on 1300 396 886 or send an email to support@siarahealth.com.
