Stockholm-based SaaS startup Encare has secured €1.5 million to assist healthcare providers in enhancing surgical care for better patient outcomes.

Encare CEO Rasmus Waller thanked new and existing investors who participated in the Swedish startup’s latest funding round through the ERAS Society network.

“Thanks to the continued support from our investors, we can continue our expansion and work towards our mission to positively impact the lives of millions of patients undergoing surgery worldwide.”

Rasmus Waller, CEO of Encare.

Encare will use the raised fund to prioritise product development to enter new major international markets, including the United States. With its solutions, Waller highlighted Encare’s capability to reduce mortality and complication rates during surgery.

Per the company’s report, it has helped more than 150 hospitals worldwide. Encare has also posted a 30 percent growth from the previous year.

Encare helps hospitals implement ERAS protocol

Established in 2009, Encare provides programmes based on the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS), evidence-based surgical care recommended worldwide. The patient-centred care system aims to lessen surgical stress response, optimise physiological functions and enhance recovery.

Encare says ERAS standards can help physicians detect problems quickly in their patients and shorten hospital stays. In addition to minimising patients’ discomfort, the protocol also reduces hospital bills and improves the working condition of healthcare professionals by decreasing their workloads.

The startup offers two solutions for its clients, the ERAS Interactive Audit System (EIAS) and ERAS Implementation Program (EIP). The EIAS helps hospitals in ensuring staff compliance with the ERAS. The cloud-based programme provides immediate feedback to staff members regarding deviations from the standard care practice.

Meanwhile, the EIP assists hospitals in training their professionals to implement the ERAS. Encare develops the EIP based on staff involved in the perioperative workflow — nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists and others — helping them build teamwork.

Encare’s solutions are available for various surgical care protocols, including head & neck and breast reconstruction surgeries.
