Ireland’s largest startup technology conference kicked off with resounding success last week in Cork, Ireland. Organized by Richard Linger, Manager at Nimbus Technology Gateway at CIT, the Beyond IoT 2 conference brought together over 500 leading minds from across the world for a day of innovative discussion.
Wheeling Hospital is the first medical facility in the U.S. to use a new scanner system for surgical devices.
GS1 Ireland led an international coalition which successfully employed a sterile field scanner during surgery. The “TRACTUS” scanner by SteriTrack effectively collected detailed medical device information from extremely small codes known as data matrix codes on hospital-sterilized implants at Wheeling Hospital in West Virginia, USA. For the first time, full medical device traceability was proven on these implants, allowing for future device analytics.
