Caretag offers a complete medical tracking solution enabling hospitals to track all surgical instruments using an RFID tag. Each instrument is fitted with an RFID tag by a patented robot enabling instruments to go through the sterilization process over 2500 times.
Advanced software combined with readers, bulk count instruments rapidly to monitor significant parameters directly impacting safety, standards, operations, efficiency and costs.
Improve Safety & Quality of Care
Reduce the risk of retained surgical instruments (RSI) when you use caretag's biologically and biocompatibility tested RFID tags. Using the same technology, create seamless automation and contactless environments to improve safety and quality of care.
Create Smarter Operational Workflows
Create efficient, rule-based workflows with intelligent tags and devices designed to enrich your data on bespoke dashboards. Just a single tap of your digital identity will deliver smarter choices for beings who thrive on improvement.
Optimize Surgical Workflows with Transparency
Tag your instruments to obtain transparency to manage your rule-based workflows using location. Amend your workflows and resources based on your current situation – in real time. Manage your operational costs with dashboards, analyses and reporting.
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.
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 Real Time Location System (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.
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.
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.
We offer a complete surgical instrument inventory management system with analytics. This will enable you to take control of tracking urgent trays, analyze the full asset lifecycle, locations, predict accurate cycle times for processing and evaluate rental and maintenance costs.

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.
We know how challenging it is to keep track of where to buy instruments given the vast choice of suppliers. And how frustrating it must be when the etched product information disappears!
To reduce the frustration, our nimble solution has the option to buy replacement instruments with or without tags. And we would be delighted to tag your existing and future purchases as part of our service so you can safely identify the instrument even when the etch lets you down.
We also know that for some, independence is important. We offer education and training on the application process with the use of a robotic arm.
