As more complex surgeries are being performed, they require a set of specialized instruments. However, the space required to store such instruments is limited in hospitals. Enter surgical loaner kits. This curated selection of surgical tools allow hospital staff to optimize patient care while minimizing overhead.
The problem is that these loaner kits come with their own set of unique challenges. Often times hospitals are reticent to adopt the use of loaner kits because they don’t arrive with enough time for the hospital to process the kit. This can jeopardize patient safety because it forces hospital staff to do things like steam sterilize the medical equipment, which is not best practice. On top of that, instruments in these kits can end up being unaccounted for, which puts vendors in a bind.
Having a clear and organized way of managing this high-value inventory is essential to patient safety, regulatory compliance, and will lead to a wider adoption of loaner kits in surgical suites.
Our RAIN RFID sensors and software can give you visibility of all loaner kits and their contents, making it easier than ever to establish a clear line of communication and automate the replenishment process of these much needed medical supplies. RFID technology addresses and solves the major critiques of the loaner kit system, helping you to streamline the process and provide hospitals the tools they need to impact patients.
