Managing loaner trays can be challenging. The issues include coordination with the OR, tight scheduling, processing massive numbers of trays, meeting surgeons’ preferences, and recognizing the needs of the patient. Staff are pressured to process a variety of loaner trays, some unfamiliar and complex, often with little time to properly process. Surgeons utilize only what they need. Yet, reps bring in an excessive number of loaners and duplicate trays, not sue of what the surgeon truly needs, and more in case there is a tear in the wrapper.
Case Medical’s Loaner Locate system can help you reduce inventory, go paperless, improve accuracy, ensure policies are followed and reduce time locating these sets. Loaner Locate is a software system designed to streamline and manage the loaner tray process. Providing direct real time communications between all stakeholders, Loaner Locate addresses all pertinent information, such as scheduling, preference cards, IFUs, inventory requirements, and delivery.
