Haldor Advanced Technologies Deploys Canada’s First RFID Enabled Management System of Surgical Instruments
Haldor Advanced Technologies (Haldor) is a privately held company that specializes in developing solutions for the healthcare industry. The company's flagship product, ORLocate, is an automated RFID based system that is designed to help hospitals improve patient safety, reduce costs, and improve operational efficiency in operating rooms and sterile processing departments. ORLocate® is the only commercially available solution that monitors and tracks surgical instruments and consumables, including sponges, on an individual basis before, during, and at the conclusion of a surgical procedure.
The ORLocate system will be used by UHN to improve infection control, reduce cost of ownership of surgical instruments, provide visibility of the workflow and optimize utilization of surgical sets.
UHN will be one of the first North American customers to receive the recently released product improvements such as the ORLocate View, a comprehensive business analytic module designed to provide on-demand data mining and on-the-fly reporting to support a continuous improvement cycle.
