SafeStart uses mobile, cloud-based, HIPAA compliant technology to create an enhanced patient safety record complete with surgeon annotated photos, important clinical documents, allergies, consent forms, and more.

Multiple safety record reviews and sign-offs by clinical staff, and the patient, allow for procedures to start safely and on time.


Available on Major Platforms

Use SafeStart on iOS (iPad and iPhone) as well as Android (phones and tablets) to enter patient information in the pre-op area and then perform a timeout before starting surgery.


Why SafeStart?

Eliminate Never Events

Never Events are unacceptable and cause great harm to patients as well as negatively impacting doctors, nurses, and their facilities.

SafeStart is designed to eliminate wrong patient, wrong procedure, and wrong site Never Events by using enhanced and vetted clinical information.

Increase Patient Engagement

Engaged patients lead to improved health outcomes, better patient care, and lower costs.

SafeStart is designed to include patients and their families in the safety process.

Reduce Delays and Cancellations

Delays and cancellations in the operating room disrupt patient flow, increase operational costs, and raise patient anxiety.

SafeStart's comprehensive patient safety document set is vetted multiple times before the patient arrives at the pre-operative area - streamlining the safety process so procedures can start on time.


SafeStart has given me and my surgical team the confidence that we will be doing all we can to reduce the possibility of a Never Event. My clinical staff and I love SafeStart. By using SafeStart we all believe we are implementing the best practices in surgical safety and patient engagement.
