SPM improves all aspects of the sterile processing function by automating safeguards and documentation and tracking each instrument’s location and condition.
All surgical equipment and trays are identified by a barcode label and scanned at each step of the processing chain, recording the date and time. Customers have the option to barcode individual instruments as well, providing more flexibility in instrument management. Scanning barcodes throughout the process allows the system to push needed information to facilitate the work.
This allows the system to document work performed, verify the work, meet the required standards for quality, and push messages, alerts and other actionable information when and where needed.
It also drives the reporting and decision support tools managers depend on.
The system delivers a paperless AAMI-compliant documentation package, keeping your facility audit-ready at all times.
Microsystems also offers a number of interfaces that integrate your existing equipment, making SPM’s automated documentation and safeguards even more robust.
