WHITECAT is more than just instrument tracking - it an intelligent connected workflow solution designed to increase patient safety and optimize operational costs without modifying your existing workflow.
We provide RFID surgical instrument tracking that includes RFID enabled surgical instruments, RFID hardware and software. Utilising the most advanced technology, we can provide you with the visibility and analytics to optimise your operation and increase patient safety.
What is even more advantageous, is that our ALL-IN-ONE solution for CSSD and OR is expandable. Our enriched data integration into a real time location system platform positively impacts the operational and patient workflow ecosystem. Resulting in a very happy patient.
A tray can hold up to 80 instruments and should be manually counted once before surgery and twice post surgery. Under pressure, this can be stressful, create errors and time consuming.
Our tray scanner will remove this pressure, reduce errors and increase operational efficiency and workflow.
Identifying and counting instruments in decontamination and wash/assembly is a skill. A skill that requires at least 2 years of training. Tray errors lead to cancelled procedures or delays in OR.
Our scanner provides a fast and accurate report on the tray contents. Not only does it reduce errors but decreases costs in delays and cancellations.
Surgical instrument inventory shrinkage is a common issue for hospitals. When visibility of the asset is challenging, how can you improve operating costs?
We offer a complete surgical instrument inventory management system with analytics. This will enable you to take control of tracking urgent trays, analyse the full asset lifecycle, locations, predict accurate cycle times for processing and evaluate rental and maintenance costs.
The prevention of ‘retained surgical instruments’ (RSI) after surgery is critical for hospitals. It is a global problem that can lead to adverse events and litigation.
Our tray scanner and our handheld scanner quickly accounts for inventory and missing instruments.
Under the US Food & Drug Administration’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) regulations, there is a requirement to link the medical devices and instruments used on every patient record.
Our instruments are laser etched with a 2D data matrix that contains the UDI. Our RFID tag is configured to contain the UDI and any other information to support analysis.
With our ageing population there will be an increase in surgical interventions. Hospitals will need to improve productivity and the patient journey. As a primary step, providing visibility and efficiency in CSSD and OR will increase throughput. Integration into a RTLS system will enrich the user with information on the entire patient workflow ecosystem. In fact, the two workflows rely on each other.
What is unique about WHITECAT is that we can deliver the entire workflow ecosystem.
