Surgical Excellence Capabilities
At the Surgical Process Institute (SPI) we aim to transform the surgical experience to enable surgeons and hospitals to deliver consistent quality of care and efficiency in their OR.
Following decades of successful innovation in surgery, variability in outcomes is still significant.
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% average 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.
