Health-Tech pilot leads to the adoption of a smart cabinet that gives total control of medical devices and implants back to hospitals
Hadassah conducted a 6-month pilot with full integration to the SAP software at its main OR; managing heart valves and implants. The SmartCabinet technology, cloud server combined with the IDENTI Platform have been managing the inventory from the time of its dispatch from the vendor site through the hospital OR; and back to the vendors by sending replenishment orders for consignment stock and regular procured products.
Heart valve implants are stored in the smart cabinets at the OR clean core supply room. Each item received is enrolled with an RFID tag from the vendor and placed into the cabinets. The system is integrated with SAP, the hospital ERP system; and provides online inventory information including batch ID, serial number, and expiration dates.
