ABOUT PROJECT

UTMC partnered with DeRoyal, one of its medical-surgical product suppliers, on an initiative to develop the “perfect physician preference card.” Utilizing the Orthopaedic OR’s, they developed a “smart trash can” featuring software that reads radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags on product packaging as it is disposed of into the Safe, captures the information on the tag and transmits it to UTMC’s OR software system, which serves as the hospital’s patient medical record, and helps determine supply charges generated for each surgical case. The next phase will include an interface to UTMC’s Lawson enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
