Apart from significantly reducing time and effort in supply chain process, our Procedure Management solution offers several benefits to enhance patient outcomes.
Patient safety is enhanced. Expired items are identified with alerts and can be tracked to precise inventory locations for removal – just like recalled items. The patient record is complete, accurate and fully reportable, ensuring that all patients who have received a recalled item can be easily identified.
Automatic extraction of smart barcode information, including expiry dates, lot and serial numbers through a single scan is supported – to provide accurate patient records of protheses used.
Surgical preference cards can also be maintained for each surgeon, providing a list of all items they are likely to need for a particular procedure such as a left hip replacement. There’s a bulk import feature, so you can export them from Microsoft Excel, for instance. An export/import capability lets you export preference cards, then update and re-import them back in bulk.
Attachments for tray layouts can be attached to the preference cards, so you can see exactly how you can lay out all of the items for a particular procedure. There's a ‘save as’ feature, so if you have created a preference card for one surgeon for a procedure, you can do a save as, make a few small changes, and save it with a different name.
As well as saving surgeons' and administrators' time, it also ensures the right protheses are on the spot and available for each procedure—to maximise effectiveness and treatment outcomes. Further, the system records what items are implanted and can also track explants for wastage. Expiry date alerts are generated for improved patient safety and recalls easily managed—all serving to improve patient safety.
