The StartBox team is assembled from experts in fields ranging from medical device product development, marketing and distribution; to surgical innovation implementation; to information technology systems development.
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.
