Our Story

We here at PeriOp Green aim to reduce perioperative waste within operating rooms across healthcare systems throughout the United States and the World. One modifiable and particularly distasteful source of waste is single-use, sterile surgical supplies (SUSSS). SUSSS are often opened onto the scrub table but not used in the surgery. These items must be thrown out. In a single operating room, these items may be hundreds or thousands of dollars. In the US alone, there are billions of health care dollars from wasted SUSSS literally going up in smoke (ie. incineration).

The issue came to our attention and we realized that implementing green operating rooms was necessary. Thus, we sat down and came up with the idea of PeriOp Green. Without causing any form of obstruction to operating rooms and healthcare professionals, we have created a technology that is able to detect unused SUSSS. The main service consists of implementing a camera above scrub tables that will use machine learning technology to detect used and unused SUSSS. By following the supplies, our software will be able to determine which items are consistently used and which remain consistently unused. This data will be collected from procedures, and By aggregating information over the course of multiple operations, we can provide perioperative administrators with valuable information regarding surgical supply usage and waste that can be stratified by surgeon, procedure, or department. Not only will PeriOp Green cut costs for healthcare systems, but it will improve the environmental footprint of the OR.

The operating room is a source of financial and actual waste--PeriOp Green can help you make both better.
