Tracking Surgical Instruments To Improve Tray Accuracy

It is not unusual for surgical assets to “migrate” from tray to tray as they move through the reprocessing loop. The use of electronic count sheets helps with documentation and provides easy access to assembly instructions, and acceptable substitutions, but adding the ability to “scan” assets during the assembly process can dramatically impact tray accuracy and technician efficiency. The combination of the CensiTrac software with the CensiMark solution helps to ensure instrument sets have the precise instrument type and quantities required for a specific configuration by alerting the user if items do not belong or if the quantity has been met.

Impact on Lost or Missing Assets

Using the CensiMark solution to mark and identify surgical assets means that the last scanned location of every individual marked asset, (including but not limited to instruments, peel packs, and endoscopes) is tracked.  Having individual asset location information in just a few clicks enables facilities to find assets, or determine when assets have gone missing in a much more efficient and effective manner.

Impact on Maintenance and Repair Costs

It makes sense that it is more cost effective to send instrumentation out for maintenance based on number of uses, rather than sending items out on a schedule, whether maintenance is due or not.  Combining the CensiMark solution with the CensiTrac system allows the software to track the number of times an individual instrument goes through the reprocessing loop.  By alerting staff assembling trays when maintenance is due on an individual asset based on actual usage, facilities are able to reduce annual maintenance costs.

Link Specific Instruments to a Patient Case

Instrument-level tracking is the only way to truly track every single instrument to each patient and get the biggest return on investment from your tracking solution. That's why instruments marked with unique device identification directly impact patient safety and positive patient outcomes because they are the key to enabling instrument-level tracking. Without marked instruments, instrument-level tracking is impossible.
