The hip bone’s connected to the supply chain.

Our current healthcare system is fraught with inefficiency. Take your typical hospital, for example. The amount of time hospital staff spends manually locating, identifying and reordering surgical supplies results in a significant amount of lost revenue. On a smarter planet, we can instrument supply chains to provide higher levels of efficiency.

Implanet, a midsize medical device company, saw an opportunity to create a new business model to do just that. With the help of IBM and our Business Partners, Implanet invented the traceable surgical implant process. Tagged with intelligent RFID chips, implants can be traced through the chain-from manufacturer to distributor to hospital to patient. This highly automated system gives Implanet and their clients visibility to product information and inventory online. Surgeons can access data on implants they have inserted, and hospitals can set up automatic stock adjustments-helping reduce administration time significantly. The new efficiency gained means hospitals can spend more time on what matters most-their patients.
