Every year, millions of surgeries are performed around the world. Surgeons usually follow the exact same steps to ensure consistent positive results for patients. However, successful surgery is not only dependent on the surgeons’ performance but also on many steps during a procedure with diverse surgical teams that seamlessly work together.
SPI has developed a way of standardizing surgeries by translating the entire surgical experience into a detailed, step-by-step checklist that follows best-in-class standards. This means that important safety checks are completed every time in the same order and all supporting processes are harmonized.
Surgical Process Institute (SPI) offers innovative software solutions to improve patient outcomes and operating room efficiency by reducing variability in surgical interventions. The institute’s vision is to establish optimal medical standards in order to ensure the best medical quality and economic efficiency.
The team consists of business economists, process and certification specialists, IT and medical technology experts, architects, marketing specialists and a network of experienced physicians.
