Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) has partnered with cloud-based surgical tray solutions provider UniteOR to deliver an integrated solution for surgical tray management.

Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) has partnered with cloud-based surgical tray solutions provider UniteOR to deliver an integrated solution for surgical tray management.

The integration of BD's IMPRESS instrument management system with UniteOR's cloud-based surgical tray tracking and vendor management solution is expected to offer enhanced visibility for surgical tray management in the operating room and sterile processing settings.

The new solution will enable better visibility of vendor loaned trays, which are usually delivered without prior notice to healthcare workers who hold the responsibility to ensure the equipment’s efficiency.

BD V Mueller platform leader Arron Retterer said: "This integrated approach is designed to help decrease time spent tracking the location of surgical instruments and trays and allow staff to focus more time on the patient.

"This new collaboration with UniteOR enables BD to offer a truly integrated approach to the complex challenges that hospitals and health systems face surrounding surgical tracking."

The surgery case and procedure-specific information associated with vendor tray requirements for scheduled surgical procedures such as set images, instruction for use (IFU) documentation and expected delivery time of the equipment will be shared between the UniteOR and IMPRESS platforms.

The IMPRESS system will provide a tray’s location and sterility information to the UniteOR platform via the hygienic processing of vendor trays.

The hospitals and their IT partners can access the information through a web-based user interface as well as on mobile devices.

Set to be available from June, the joint solution will also notify healthcare workers that assets are ready for pick-up after the surgery case or procedure is completed.
