Problems we Address
Health Facilities Unaware Of Their Error Risks
Using outdated technology systems like DOS that is incompatible with any modern software, leaving hospital departments unable to communicate with each other.

Allowing the use of paper drug charts, when medication errors are such a dangerous problem. More information
Governments, Insurers and Patients Unaware of Unnecessary Costs

Refusing to implement national bed management software that can give real time updates, then allowing Emergency Department waiting times to blow out, leading to hefty fines. – Learn more
