Automated Expiry Management and Recall System

Use AI to provide a safety net that prevents the accidental usage of unsafe items.

Optimize product safety validation behind the ‘red line”

Adverse events in the operating room due to expired or recalled products can have serious consequences for patient safety and surgical outcomes. These events occur when medical devices, implants, or supplies that have passed their expiration date or have been recalled by the manufacturer are inadvertently used during surgical procedures.

Such occurrences can lead to a range of adverse outcomes, including:

Surgical Complications: Expired or recalled products may malfunction or fail during or after surgery, leading to unexpected complications such as bleeding, infection, or tissue damage.

Delayed Treatment: If a necessary instrument or device is found to be expired or recalled during surgery, it can cause delays in treatment, as the surgical team need to quickly find a suitable replacement or alternative.

Patient Harm: In the worst-case scenario, the use of expired or recalled products can directly result in harm to the patient, including injuries, infections, or other serious complications that may require additional medical intervention or prolonged hospitalization.

Legal and Regulatory Consequences: Healthcare facilities may face legal and regulatory repercussions if they are found to have used expired or recalled products during surgery, including potential lawsuits, fines, or sanctions from regulatory agencies.

Why you need an AI-powered expiry & recall management system to boost surgical safety

Unfortunately, nurses report that expired and recalled items regularly make it through to the operating room, presenting a high risk to patients, as well as to organizational compliance.

To achieve full expiry protection, providers need a dual solution – one that perpetually tracks the expiry date of all items in stock, and provides a final safety check at the point of care.

Providers need to have a process in place to ‘catch’ any expired or recalled items that make it into the operating room or surgery setting.

System reports help providers to quickly access the exact UDI and product data they need for swift and robust recall management.

Why medical inventory safety management is important

Leveraging technology is the smart way to manage expiry risks in healthcare. 

Putting a product safety management process in place can impact healthcare organizations in three ways:

PATIENT SAFETY: Protect patients by safeguarding them against product validation lapses, ensuring better patient outcomes and higher satisfaction levels.

REDUCED COSTS: Put an end to expiry wastage by using technology signpost you to items closest to expiry then prioritize their usage and eliminate expiry waste. Prevent “never events” with pre-consumption safety checks that mitigate litigation costs.

STAFF TIME: Take the pressure off busy operating room nurses by providing an automated shield against product safety lapses. Streamline perioperative workflows with simpler surgical supply documentation that ensures accurate EHR records.
