1. Ostomy Software will help you make an intelligent choice.
o It is often the case that, after surgery, new ostomates are given only a few products from the hospital to keep them going until they find a supplier. These are usually products from only one particular manufacturer and from only one product line. They are “general products”, designed to fit vast majority of patients and not suited to patient’s type of ostomy, body shape, skin sensitivity and preference. Many new ostomates are left with the impression that, this is the only choice they have. The products hospitals give away are often products given to them by sales representatives and usually represent one single brand.
o There are literally thousands of ostomy products on the market. Most of the retailers selling ostomy supplies do not specialize in ostomy and often have little or no information on various manufacturers, product lines, features etc.
Ostomy Software is here to fill this gap! In an easy and accurate manner it provides the user with profound product knowledge and opportunity to test a large variety of products from various manufacturers and product lines. Ostomy products can vary in brand, type, shape, size, colour, material, opening, filtering and body attachment system. Ostomy Software explores all of these options and lets you choose the unique products to best suit your personal preferences.
2. Ostomy Software lets you choose your appliances from the convenience of your own home.
If you feel uneasy discussing your personal needs or problems with a pharmacist, home health care professional or a customer service representative, Ostomy Software is the perfect tool for you. It will save you time, money, energy and potentially embarrassing moments.
3. Ostomy Software has a powerful engine designed to do the entire research and matching work for you. It is extremely easy to use.
Ostomy software will ask you questions before determining the correct product(s). It will then give you the manufacturer’s product code(s) and show a picture of the product(s). This way you can simply call your retailer, give the product number and either ask for samples or place an order. Ostomy Software can be easily used even by people with little computer skills.
4. Ostomy Software gives you the option to choose from among the many product lines offered by Hollister, ConvaTec and Coloplast.
Every manufacturer has different product lines designed to better respond to differences in body shape, age, skin sensitivity, individual taste, etc. In many cases patients are familiar with only one of the manufacturer’s product lines and are unaware of the choices they have.
5. Ostomy Software has a built-in “smart matching system” which finds for you comparable products from among different manufacturers.
If you currently use or intend to use the products of one manufacturer, the software will suggest and give you the product numbers for comparable products from other manufacturers, which you might want to try as well. This way you can call your retailer and ask for samples.
