Snap & Go™ is able to locate recalled products even during operating procedures, when they are “waiting” on the shelf. It is therefore a complementary solution to all outsourced recall services that provide general information lists but are unable to respond to teams in real time and locate the unit when they are already in the core storeroom.

Because Snap & Go™ “reads and files” the batch number of the implant in the patient’s file (the numerical value according to which the FDA monitors products by recall) it is possible to digitally and simply locate the patient in whom the item was transplanted in contrast to a barcode that does not have these capabilities.

Snap & Go™ has Small Dimensions and therefore does not take up valuable space in the surgical environment.

Snap & Go™ is designed for the stressful and unique environment of operating rooms and procedure rooms, and synergizes with the nature and pace of teamwork. It is customary to place one unit in an operating room/procedure room in the outer ring in a non-sterile space, and another unit at the entrance to the core store room.

Any item with a label can be snapped and identified: medical implants, medicines, and consumables such as sewing threads or staples. Items in bulk, with or without labeling, can be snapped. Even bandages – everything. However, the recommendation is to document only valuable products that the hospital has an interest in closely monitoring at the individual unit level.

Snap & Go™ functions as a “cash register” for all the products used during the operation. It does not matter if the items are packed in a kit, through reps or on the shelf : It is important and necessary to monitor their consumption and document it in patient files.

In the case of ready-made kits that usually include dozens of items, there is no need to scan the entire kit again fully after the end of the operation, as is the norm when it comes to a barcode. Rather, as soon as you take a picture of what is consumed, the system performs the calculation automatically and knows what was used.

An optimally functioning and healthy business unit is able to fully monitor all its revenues and expenses. Operating rooms and procedure rooms are the “manufacturing” departments of the hospital and therefore it is very important to base all financial management and inventory forecasts on real data and not on finger assessments and guesses.

  1. Barcodes are one-dimensional – only capable of providing manufacturer SKU. Batch no., serial no. and expiration date are missing.
  2. There is no standardization in a barcode system – multiple UDI standards with constantly changing UPN numbers.
  3. Not all items have barcodes or can be tagged – staples, sutures, some orthopedic implants and bulk items do not always have a barcode label.
  4. Many incorrect data entry alerts occur in barcode systems due to missing catalog ID numbers in the database and systems constraints.
  5. Barcode systems force hospitals to use third parties to complete missing information and correct coding errors in the item master.
  6. Medical implants packaging contains multiple barcodes which makes it difficult for medical teams to know which barcode is the right one to scan

Only logistical information is stored digitally in the cloud as requested by the FDA. We do not hold any clinical information related to the patient.

The logistical information is stored in the Microsoft Azure Cloud which is very secure. The servers are located in California.

Definitely not. All of our products come with access to management software that is actually a Software as a Service (SaaS). All updates occur automatically. In addition, a human back office customer service team and support team provide a response around the clock.

All our products are plug ‘n play. Aside from a communication point and electricity they need nothing. Since the products are so simple to operate and require minimal human intervention (opening and closing a door, pressing a button, swiping under a camera) it is not necessary to hold training seminars for team training neither at the beginning nor periodically. Upon installation, the team is accompanied by a representative on our behalf who guides the team on-the-fly. After about an hour of work the teams become experts!

An RFID Smart Cabinet is a crucial tool for managing information about medical implants and other high-value inventory. The technology tracks at individual item level tagged items stored inside the cabinet, including batch numbers and expiration dates.

The smart cabinet automatically records when items are placed in, taken out of, or returned to the cabinet. Using face or finger recognition, or an NFC card, staff members accessing items in the cabinet are also documented — all without anyone touching a computer screen.

The GS1 (Global Standards 1) recently adopted a new standard for item identification that permits for the use of one of two methods to obtain GS1 compliance: barcoding or UHF RFID. Several multinational medical suppliers, including Johnson & Johnson and Boston Scientific, have opted to use UHF RFID and are now in the process of tagging all their products accordingly.

IDENTI provides a complete solution for the next generation of Smart Cabinets that includes advanced UHF RFID embedded in the cabinet and a seamless connection to cloud services and business intelligence-based management software, connecting all stakeholders in the medical supply chain.

The most advanced smart cabinets incorporate a new generation of ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID tags that are capable of transmitting longer and can be covered by multiple antennas. This enables every stocked item to be read, no matter the size or placement of the items within the cabinet. Specialization in such technology requires in-depth knowledge of RFID technology, its capabilities, and applications. Therefore, few companies manage to provide the high level of accuracy required in the medical sector.

The first generation of smart cabinets relied on 13.56 Mhz HF (high frequency) RFID technology that required antennas to be installed on (or in) the shelves, which allowed for a limited reading range of up to 10 cm from the tag. It also dictated that the RFID tags be positioned precisely on each item. The second generation of RFID technology is based on an ultra-high frequency (UHF) range of 868-952Mhz which enables reading of the RFID tags no matter where they are attached to the item or where the item is placed within the cabinet.
