Patient safety is our priority.
Just like it is for the thousands of healthcare providers that treat patients every day.
The StartBox System is an innovative, cloud-based system designed to ensure patient safety, objectively track risk, and reduce medical liability costs.
The StartBox System begins by recording the decision for surgery between patient and physician. The System then allows members of the healthcare team to capture data at checkpoints throughout the continuum of care, and uses a color-coded visualization that designates procedure laterality. Any member of the healthcare team can flag errors during the various checkpoints and provide real-time alerts to improve patient safety and procedure outcomes.
The StartBox System enables improved communication between the surgical team and the patient; between the surgeon's practice and surgical facility; and among care providers along the patient care continuum giving everyone to the chance to achieve the safest care for every patient, every time.
Beyond patient safety, the data-driven insights generated through use of the StartBox System can improve risk profiles and reduce medical liability insurance program costs.
A study was conducted at a single site over a twelve-month period. Similarly to the experience reported in a peer-reviewed publication, patient harm was prevented and errors were captured. Additionally, a downward trend in near misses was observed, with zero reported during the last five months of the period. This suggests that the StartBox System can help healthcare facilities and providers improve their patient safety and risk profiles over time.
Kim Kramer will lead StartBox in capitalizing on its goals of mitigating risk, reducing medical liability costs and increasing healthcare operational efficiencies.
