Automation for Process Safety

 

Traceability, consistency, and workflow optimization are of fundamental importance in meeting the complexity of In-house or outsourced sterilization services. The packaging of surgical sets is one of the most critical phases that has not yet benefited from automation procedures already standard in the washing and sterilization phases. The fundamental contribution of human intervention in such a complex activity offers potentialities and criticalities: staff with different experiences, training of new operators, specialized procedures, need of back up. Introducing artificial intelligence to serve surgical set packaging helps guide procedures, reduce the complexity and risks of human error.

 

 

Introducing AI

 

SUIS, the surgical instrument vision system, guides staff step-by-step through set packaging procedures, preventing identification errors, reducing procedure time, particularly for complex loan sets. This leading technology is an innovative vision system based on artificial intelligence, quickly identifying the surgical instruments at once. It works without DataMatrix or RFID and does not need any alterations or marks on the surgical instruments, identifying the surgical instruments of a kit by their shape. SUIS identifies surgical instruments, outlines extraneous items in the kit, and guides the operator through the sequence.
