Tissue TrackingRecent advances in medical device technology, surgical procedures and tissue preservation are revolutionizing the health care industry. Most experts agree that we have just scratched the surface of the potential that this new medicine offers. However, this expanded capability requires an equally sophisticated system to track devices, prosthetics and tissues as they move through the supply chain. A mistake or shortfall at any point can have serious consequences both to the patient and the provider.

Learn How To:

  • Provide absolute accountability by tracking every transaction, virtually eliminating shrinkage and maximizing revenue, especially for consignment based products
  • Reduce the need for physical inventory counts, which lowers overhead costs and eliminates human error
  • Reduce stock-outs, which ensures product availability
  • Reduce expired product, thereby ensuring tissue viability and the prospect of improved patient outcomes
