MiS brings together four pillars of medical surgical instrument traceability and contingency

  • Megaphonewhite
    Identification

    Standardising the UDI's of medical surgical instruments. Every item is assigned a distinct identifier that enables its tracking throughout its lifecycle. This identification can include serial numbers, barcodes, or RFID tags, which allow for easy identification and tracking.

    The problem: Legacy providers use unconventional DI's/UDI's that prevent items being tracked between locations.

    The solution: MiS creates a GS1 complaint UDI to ensure all items passed through each provider can be traced, while retaining a record of the legacy ID.

    Documentation

    Accurate documentation is crucial for traceability and contingency management. It involves maintaining comprehensive records of each instrument's identification, usage history, maintenance, repairs, and any other relevant information. Documentation should be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible to ensure efficient traceability and facilitate contingency planning.

    The problem: Documentation is spread across multiple systems in multiple formats which requires additional manual resource to collect and compile it, which in turn, makes it out-of-date by the time you're analysing it.

    The MiS solution: MiS standardise all documentation and auditing into a central store with accurate, up-to-date auditing of real-time statistics, built on the dashboard reports that "you" need.

  • Megaphonewhite
    Tracking and Monitoring

    Focus on the continuous tracking and monitoring of medical surgical instruments. It involves recording the movement and usage of instruments, as well as any maintenance or repair activities performed on them. Tracking and monitoring can be achieved through electronic systems, such as inventory management software or tracking technologies like RFID, to ensure real-time visibility and accurate data collection.

    The problem: Some items get lost or pulled out of the "flow" of process leaving gaps in your knowledge of where items are.

    The solution: MiS has our own modern traceability software, which is quick to build and deploy new process to capture missing data, to plug the gaps in your asset knowledge.

  • Teamwhite
    Contingency Planning

    Planning is essential to mitigate risks and ensure uninterrupted availability of medical surgical instruments. It involves developing strategies and protocols for situations such as instrument loss, malfunction, or contamination. Contingency plans should include procedures for immediate response, alternative instrument availability, and rapid replacement or repair processes to minimize any potential disruptions in healthcare services.

    The problem: Legacy systems run locally on your network within their own silos. As soon as one or more of these breaks, your whole process stops.

    The solution: MiS has been built as a contingency system from the ground up, with the ability to work on or off-site to keep data flowing.

The Importance of Removing Silos

Interlinking different medical instrument traceability systems.

In many healthcare facilities, different departments or units may have their own separate traceability systems for medical surgical instruments. These systems may not communicate or share information with each other, resulting in isolated data silos. However, interlinking these systems can greatly enhance contingency planning efforts. Here's how it can be achieved

MIS where you go, we go

Centralised Database

Establishing a centralised database or platform that integrates data from various traceability systems is crucial. This central repository should capture information from all departments or units involved in medical surgical instrument traceability. It can serve as a single source of truth, eliminating data duplication and ensuring consistent and up-to-date information across the organization.

Standardised Data Formats and Protocols

To interlink different traceability systems, it's essential to establish standardised data formats and protocols for data exchange. This enables seamless communication and interoperability between systems. Adopting industry standards such as Health Level Seven International (HL7) or other relevant standards ensures compatibility and smooth integration between different systems.

Data Sharing and Collaboration

Encouraging data sharing and collaboration between different departments or units is key to removing silos. This can be facilitated through regular meetings, cross-functional teams, or committees dedicated to traceability and contingency planning. By fostering a culture of collaboration, stakeholders can share knowledge, experiences, and best practices, leading to improved contingency plans and a more comprehensive understanding of instrument traceability.

Real-time Data Synchronisation

Timely and accurate data synchronisation is vital when interlinking different traceability systems. It ensures that all stakeholders have access to the most recent information regarding instrument usage, maintenance, repairs, and any other relevant data points. Real-time synchronization can be achieved through automated data exchange mechanisms or by leveraging application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect disparate systems.
