Medical Device Management

Item level management system to reduce implant waste & boost efficiency

Why implant tracking matters

High cost medical devices and implants put a strain on supply chain budgets which can represent up to 30% of US healthcare organizations’ expenditure.  Yet poor management of this expensive inventory commonly results in high wastage, inflated costs, and revenue loss.

Providers commonly carry more than 25% excess stock and implant waste reduction results in millions of lost dollars each year. Invisible inventory carries a high price, and item-level tracking provides the solution.

 

What item level management delivers

Item level tracking involves individually monitoring and managing each item, so that full inventory visibility and control is achieved.

Gaining a clear understanding of the current inventory and using vital data insights to support better decisions, ensures cost, staffing and operational efficiencies, plus enhances patient-safety and compliance.

But item level data doesn’t just take care of the present, predictive analytics can be used for informed forecasting that drives through more precise planning.

Technology for medical device management

Automated implant tracking systems are able to achieve the real-time, accurate data required to successfully implement item-level management.

Automating inventory management supports more efficient management of both bought and consignment stock

Technology can now ensure precision tracking for every tagged item in your healthcare inventory, as well as the documentation of tagged and non-tagged items at the point of care.

The three stages of item-level tracking

As medical inventory flows through the supply chain, there are three key stages of tracking that healthcare providers need to get right:

Efficient Kanban and Par

STOCK LEVELS: Clear inventory vision. Understand product volumes, locations and item level data, including full UDI.

 

item master bill only

EXPIRATION DATES: Full control. Proactively manage expiry, ensuring all products are used rather than wasted.

USAGE: Informed procurement. Gain surgical inventory control for demand-led restocks that eliminate obsolete stock.

Full visibility from supplier to consumption

Think RFID is inefficient? Think again! New generation UHF RFID technology is providing accurate healthcare inventory management and can also be used as a central system between supply chain partners, making it an ideal option for consignment.

With more sensors, and improved implant tracking, see how TotalSense smart cabinet uses RFID to closely monitor inventory.

UDI compliance solution for surgical procedures – using AI and computer vision.

Put an end to UDI capture challenges in surgical supply documentation and enhance your medical device management in OR and procedural areas.  

Existing point of use systems are inadequate and routinely result in incomplete and non-compliant patient records. Snap&Go uses image recognition and AI technology to capture full product information at the point of use, including SKU, batch number, serial/lot, expiry date and more.

Snap & Go is custom-made for the surgical setting and uses patented image recognition and AI technology. This automated implant tracking system for healthcare fully automates the task of surgical utilization, delivering complete and correct EHR records that include full UDI compliance in surgery, of every reportable implant. 

Access to a globally populated SKU database ensures every item is validated, whether it’s listed on your local item master – or not. 

AI technology and machine learning algorithms undertake UDI data-fixing and gap-filling, so that every item has a complete, correct, and standardized entry.
