SafeStart is an intuitive, easy to use but thorough pre-procedure patient safety record management application digital solution accessible by all stakeholders involved in the pre-procedure patient safety and efficiency process.

SafeStart shares its image rich patient pre-procedure patient safety documentation with the patient on a patient portal that may be agnostically embedded or integrated with EHR portals. Redundant review of the safety checklist information antecedent the presentation of the patient at the facility for the procedure enhances the accuracy and completeness of the safety record.

Creation of a complete digital safety record using less expensive time in the office or clinic to prevent expensive delays and cancellations at the facility thereby enhancing efficiency of patient care and throughput at the facility.

SafeStart features an Innovative enhanced communication process effective across the usual information silos for the procedure of patient intake, patient home, and the facility. SafeStart leverages human cognition that favors memory of images enhancing safety based on images plus text.

SafeStart uniquely includes the patient in pre-procedure safety by featuring patient review and approval or disapproval the elements of the pre-procedure safety checklist on our EHR agnostic patient portal and the SafeStart patient portal can be integrated or embedded in an EHR portal. SafeStart sends automated messages to patients and staff to transparently include the patient in error prevention.

SafeStart allows patients and clinicians to move PHI with images securely in compliance with HIPAA thereby avoiding the breach potential of texting or emailing PHI and patient images by non-HIPAA compliant traditional email or texting.

The pre-procedure safety timeout checklist emulates pre-flight checklist in style and simplicity and is self-documenting saving time and duplication of effort by the staff. Optional EHR integration can be added at locations where an EHR exists.
