Johnson & Johnson Medical GmbH has announced a definitive agreement to acquire German software company, Surgical Process Institute (SPI), a leading specialist for the standardization and digitalization of surgical workflows in the operating theatre. SPI provides innovative software solutions designed to improve patient outcomes and operating room efficiency by reducing variability in surgical procedures.
“At Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, we are committed to broadening our portfolio of products and services to meet the changing needs of our customers around the world,” said Sandi Peterson, Group Worldwide Chair for Johnson & Johnson**. “SPI’s unique offerings have been shown to reduce surgery variability and the time spent in the operating room. These new digital tools will allow us to deliver a more comprehensive and effective solution for our customers and help them continue to improve patient care.”
“Our aim is to establish optimal medical standards in surgery, so that patients have access to the best treatment no matter where they are undergoing surgery,” says Gunter Trojandt, Managing Director Surgical Process Institute. “We have products already in use in a significant number of larger hospitals in Germany and further projects are underway in Germany, Switzerland and the Nordic Countries.”
SPI´s products will be available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa through Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices companies in 2018 . Pilots across all other regions will start in 2018 aiming for full worldwide product availability in 2019.
