Your Central Sterile Services Department with SteMaTo
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. This presents your Central Sterile Service Department (CSSD) with a challenge.
Introducing the solution: SteMaTo – your sterilization management tool.
SteMaTo streamlines your Central Sterile Services Department, managing the entire logistics chain, improving turnaround time, tracking instruments and planning priorities.
What does SteMaTo offer your Central Sterile Services Department?
- Links to your OR systems, patients and surgeons
SteMaTo creates unique links between your OR, surgeons and patients. This ensures your CSSD knows the exact location and status of each set of equipment, including the priority for their next usage, who supervised their sterilization and which equipment was used. This helps to increase the flow of sets and instruments.
- Efficient Track and Trace
Traceability of surgical instruments is essential in healthcare today. SteMaTo’s Track and Trace functionality enables your CSSD to know exactly which tools in each location at any specific time. SteMaTo also supports the organisation of the entire cycle of sets and instruments: SPD, OR, nursing services and others.
- Handling loan sets
Ordering, monitoring and tracking loan sets can be extremely time consuming, especially as requests often come in at the last minute and are often challenging to follow. The SteMaTo system can manage and monitor loan sets, linking them to the correct operation in your planning to reduce your workload.
- Practical interface
There are two interface options for the SteMaTo system: touch screens and hand-held scanners. For ease of use, the touch screens are wireless and do not require a mouse or keyboard. SteMaTo can also use a hybrid RFID and bar-code solution.
- Leadership tool
SteMaTo gives you a full overview of your CSSD, so you can efficiently lead your sterilising service.
- Future proof
SteMaTo continues to grow and evolve. Besco is busy adapting the sterilization software to meet and exceed the needs of healthcare facilities without additional costs for you.
