*Variability in surgery is measured through standard deviation in surgery time.
**Efficiency is measured by the median of the total surgery time and incision to suture time.

The Surgical Procedure Manager v2.0 or higher (“SPM”) is placed on the market by Surgical Process Institute Deutschland GmbH (“SPI”).

SPM does not qualify as a medical device per applicable regulations, including the EU Medical Device Regulation No 2017/745. Healthcare professionals only are responsible for taking decisions related to patient diagnosis or treatment.

SPM is for use only by (i) medical staff licensed for practice and (ii) in a hospital setting (“Authorized Users”). SPM enables Authorized Users to document hospital generic and/or staff-specific process steps for certain medical interventions, such steps as designed ad agreed to by the Authorized Users (“the Workflow”).

IMPORTANT: Certain Workflows used in SPM come with pre-filled steps for implantation of medical devices marketed by the Johnson & Johnson Medical Device Companies (“JJMDC”) in line with the Instructions for Use and/or Surgical Technique Guide of such medical devices. However, those Workflows do not necessarily include all the relevant information for such medical devices and do not replace the full information in the Instructions for Use and/or Surgical Technique Guide. Please refer to https://www.e-ifu.com/ for the full information of the JJMDS medical devices.

Where SPM displays the Workflow as designed and agreed by the Authorized User, SPI assumes no liability for the individual process steps, their accuracy, correctness, completeness or quality of the medical information and content as incorporated in SPM. The Authorized User remains solely responsible and liable towards its patients for the medical intervention carried out while using SPM.

SPM may not be commercially available in all countries within EMEA and is only commercially available for a limited number of countries outside of EMEA.
