SteMaTo: more than an instrument tracking tool
How do you follow where all your surgical sets are? How do you ensure the right set is in the right OR at the right time? And how do you prioritize the sterilization of used sets?
For a smooth running OR, it is essential that your Sterile Processing Department (SPD) uses the correct tracking tool. Besco’s SteMaTo is more than just an instrument tracking tool – it is a complete Sterilization Management Tool that links your OR, surgeons and patients to ensure that tools are promptly where they need to be.
The advantages of the SteMaTo instrument tracking tool
- Efficient track and Trace
Traceability of surgical instruments is essential in healthcare today. The SteMaTo ’s Track and Trace functionality enables your SPD to know exactly which tools are in each location (SPD, OR, nursing services or elsewhere) at any specific time.
- Multiple tracking options
Tracking equipment is straightforward thanks to a Data Matrix marking technique. An alternative is a RFID/2D Reader and RFID Steri-ID Loop.
- Handling loan equipment
Loan equipment is necessary, but it can be time consuming and challenging to manage. The SteMaTo system can manage and monitor loan sets, linking them to the correct operation in your planning, reducing your workload.
- Patient safety and hospital accountability
Today’s healthcare schedules require fast turnaround of sterilized surgical instruments. Each set also needs to be fully traceable to ensure patient safety and hospital and staff accountability.
- Budget advantages
Detailed reporting will give you a comprehensive understanding of your actual requirements for instruments, improving your purchasing policy and optimizing your usage of your current equipment.
