  • University Health Network UDI Capture Work Group Case Study

    April 11, 2017 | Content Areas: Strategic Planning | Tags: Data Standards, Regulatory, UDI | Formats: Case Study

    University Health Network (UHN), in Toronto, Canada, initiated a supply chain technology transformation project throughout its 40 operating rooms and two sites with a goal to achieve clinical time efficiencies, patient safety and surgeon cost data for improved decision making and savings. The system provides surgeons with their real-time procedure cost data for all surgical supplies used per patient, per procedure. This real time data captures the
    intraoperative supplies, as well as the pick and returns from the sterile processing department (SPD), which is used to update procedure cards.

  • University of Tennessee Medical Center UDI Capture Work Group Case Study
