The Safe Surgery Targeted Solutions Tool® (TST®) is an online application that’s designed to monitor surgical cases for weaknesses that could result in wrong site surgery, thus speeding up the ability to correct issues with the surgical process without the need to wait for a wrong site surgery to actually occur. Many hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers across the country collaborated with the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare (the Center) to test the work of the original organizations that participated in the project and provide guidance on the development of the Safe Surgery TST. These organizations experienced gains similar to the original participating organizations.
