Following decades of successful innovation in surgery, there remains considerable variability in outcomes. 

Driving meaningful innovation to improve outcomes and efficiency in an evolving healthcare landscape is multifactorial and includes patients, technology as well as operative factors. SPI focuses on the operative factors:  

  • Variability in surgical procedures: Variability in performing surgical procedures even within surgical teams and departments  
  • Medical errors and adverse events: Medical errors estimated to be the #3 cause of death in the US1, 8-12% of patients admitted to hospital in Europe suffer from adverse events2 
  • Growing nurse shortage and turnover: Up to 26% increase in nurse vacancies across Europe3  
  • Varied Surgeon Experience: Influencing overall patient morbidity and operative time4    

With SPI, our vision is to help hospitals to address these challenges and enable surgery at its best, every time.
