Haldor’s ORLocate solution is the first commercially available intuitive, interoperable system to leverage RFID technology to track, manage, and analyze surgical items on an individual basis throughout Sterile Processing Departments and Operating Rooms.
ORLocate® enables hospitals to significantly reduce costs associated with surgical instrument shrinkage as well as provide usage data on each instrument to ensure accurate set size and overall inventory, to optimize workflow by actively guiding and monitoring the technician’s processes to ensure compliance, and to enhance the quality of patient care by managing infection control with accurate instrument level data.
