ExplORer Surgical is an interactive surgical playbook that reduces disruptions and wasted disposables by improving surgical team communication. ExplORer Surgical also provides real-time performance and scheduling data to OR administrators to enhance quality of care and efficiency. Surgical teams use the software to coordinate their activities while managing their tools and supplies in a way never before possible. The result is optimal teamwork, increased efficiency, and high performance.
ExplORer Surgical incorporates the surgeon and anesthesiologist’s preferences and protocols for any procedure and provides role specific information for each step of the case to each surgical team member (scrub, circulating nurse, surgeon, and anesthesiologist) on a tablet (e.g. iPad) or other web-enabled device.
Each individual screen simultaneously advances at the click of a button from step-to-step to keep all members of the surgical team on the same page and enhance situational awareness. We also have a “Big Board” view that includes case progress and key notifications on a large screen, so the whole team (and the OR board) can follow the progress of a case.
ExplORer Surgical aligns with many health systems' goals of improving quality of care and lowering costs. Our customized workflows with built-in best practices help prevent delays and disruptions that result from missing or incorrect tools, the immense amount of supply/instrument variability in surgery, and managing the preferences of an unfamiliar surgeon and/or anesthesiologist. As a result, risk to the patient decreases as does any unexpected time spent in the OR.
ExplORer Surgical’s analytics component allows administrators to track surgical activities and costs in order to better manage their ORs and gain new insights for operational efficiency and productivity. This has proven to reduce the waste of disposable supplies and lower expenses associated to each surgery. ExplORer Surgical offers a win-win-win for patients, surgical teams, and administrators.
We aim to create better, safer and more efficient surgical teams. If you’re interested in updates as we expand to additional test sites, learning more, or receiving a trial of ExplORer Surgical, please send us the following information
