Haldor Technologies has announced that its ORLocate system, a life-cycle management and
visibility platform for RFID-based surgical instruments and consumables, will be installed at
the Medical Health Resource Recycling Center at the University Health Network (UHN).
UHN is one of Canada's largest health care companies, operates four hospitals in Toronto and
will use the ORLocate system to control infection during surgery, reduce hospital cost, provide
workflow visibility, and optimize the use of surgical instruments Rate, according to Haldor Technologies.
The ORLocate system is an RFID-based automation solution that helps hospitals improve patient
safety, reduce costs, and improve operating efficiency in the operating room and aseptic processing sectors, Haldor said.
The solution can monitor and track surgical instruments and consumables, including medical sponges, as well as medical devices used before and after surgery and during surgical procedures.
According to Ram Alt, vice president of Haldor, the system deployment began in mid-July and is
expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year. ALT said that ORLocate's sterile
treatment module SPD, will be installed in UHN's two large sterilization service centers, serving
three hospitals and some clinics and research institutes.
Haldor technology will install the ORLocate SPD module and ORLocate View, a new reporting and
analysis module that provides data mining and real-time reporting as needed to facilitate
continuous improvement in cycle life of medical devices.
The company will also deploy its proprietary RFID antenna and optimize this use case for newly
developed RFID tags (Alt said that the label products will soon be commercially available).
The system will use RFID to monitor more than 7,000 operations. "In the second phase of the
project," Alt said, "UHN can expand the operation of other project management, the use of RFID
technology to reduce the occurrence of medical malpractice, to further improve the utilization of
measuring instruments and reduce the company to pay the cost.
