The StartBox System consists of a mobile software application, a safety-engineered blade delivery kit (BDK) and a data reporting tool. The software application of StartBox is an easy-to-implement, standardized platform that improves 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. Four principles form the core of the StartBox System:
Digitize the source of truth: The decision for surgery is captured with a cloud-based system and accessible to all users of the system.
Color coding: StartBox utilizes a simple color scheme to ensure the correct patient procedure is performed.
Real time alerts: StartBox enables any individual along the patient care continuum to ensure accuracy or flag errors using a dedicated device/app.
Tactical tool: The StartBox Kit allows the surgery to begin only when the correct patient procedure information has been confirmed and documented.
