Surgisphere worked with a large hospital in Chicago to implement a data-driven clinical management algorithm that improved healthcare delivery. Benchmarks and real-time access to data decreased variation and improved reaction time, leading to a direct improvement in patient care.
Changes led to a $1.8 million increase in profit, a 10-day reduction in length of stay, and a dramatic improvement in survival with an estimated 44 lives saved over a year.
This highly successful program saw parallel improvements throughout operating room procedures. Surgisphere is now working with the hospital to develop a similar program for Ob / Gyn emergencies, estimated to have a $2.2 million impact on healthcare operations.
