Development of MyCheckTime® software for perioperative safety based on Toyota's Lean Methodology
In the age of healthcare safety, compliance with checklists and time tracking in surgery continue to be a gray zone in care processes. The technology applied to approach this issue and other scenarios, may contribute to solve a problem that impacts welfare and the healthcare sector economics.
To introduce the design and construction of the MyCheckTime® software that incorporates Toyota's Lean methodology under the concept of Bundles.
Materials and methods:
A software (MyCheckTime®) was constructed based on an App available for tablets and IOS and Android system-based mobile devices; a web-based platform and a database. The software captures the patient's circuit in the surgical area in real time, and records the times in which the checklists were conducted.
MyCheckTime® is a Lean Methodology-based software that potentially enables the surgical team to deliver more efficient, safer, and timely care, allowing real time recording of the patient's circuit in the surgery area.
