Though surgery makes up a large portion of hospital budgets, clinical outcomes and the efficiency of surgical interventions differ between clinics. Generally, surgery is a specialist area where there is plenty of room for optimisation due to the low level of standardisation, differences in surgical techniques, and the lack of process-supporting tools. This is where Amsterdam-based Incision looks to make a difference by building a knowledge-based platform around surgery.
Incision claims to give people access to shared experiences, skills and expertise through its platform. Based in the SDG House in the Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, the startup provides tools to get a quicker and thorough preparation for the OR. Its goal is to network 10,000 clinics and thus improve 100 million operations per year.
