Hoag Memorial Hospital Newport Beach to Solve OR Challenges with Leading Loaner Tray Management Solution
UniteOR, Inc., a leading cloud-based surgical tray management and tracking software, announces a partnership with Hoag Memorial Hospital Newport Beach after being selected as the solution of choice. Hoag will now have a complete consigned and loaner tray management solution to improve its processes from sterile processing through operating room (OR) and back to vendor receipt, resulting in OR efficiency gains, reduction in surgery case delays, and improved cost savings.
Sam Del Toro, Manager of Sterile Processing at Hoag Newport Beach, stated, “After years of doing things the old way, our industry and clinical business is finally adopting software technology to improve clinical supply chain processes and enabling what will result in better patient safety and patient care.” Del Toro continues, “UniteOR has a unique solution in the market in that the company puts us, the hospital provider and physicians, as the center of attention via its method of tray and vendor management and is truly focused on driving cost savings and OR efficiencies.”
With a significant increase in orthopedic surgeries due to increasing patient demand, Del Toro sought for a solution to help Hoag wrap its arms around the entire surgical tray management processes and medical device manufacturer’s compliance with the hospital’s stringent policies and procedures. The need to standardize and improve communication among all stakeholders involved in surgery, monitor surgical instrumentation vendors’ adherence, and assess vendors’ performance led to the selection of UniteOR’s cloud-based software.
“We are delighted and honored to have a marque health system and hospital in Hoag to join our prestigious list of client partners. Hoag is known for its clinical excellence and patient satisfaction ratings. We look forward to supporting the organization in its OR improvement initiative and process excellence to be enabled by our unique solution,” said Nam D. Vo, CEO of UniteOR.
UniteOR’s proven implementation methodology is aimed to take Hoag live on its solution by January 30, 2017.
