Haldor Advanced Technologies has been selected to implement the ORLocate® System , a comprehensive RFID-enabled surgical instruments and sponges life-cycle management and visibility platform, at the University Health Network (“UHN”) Medical Device Reprocessing Centres.

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.

“After detailed market analysis, UHN has selected Haldor Advanced Technologies as the RFID enabled instrument tracking solution of choice due to its advanced reporting capabilities and analytics, modularity, and individual instrument level tracking capabilities” said Murat Firat, Manager of Medical Engineering Department, University Health Network.

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.

“We are honored to be working with one of the most distinguished North American healthcare providers,” said Ilan Kadosh-Tamari, CEO of Haldor Advanced Technologies. “We see this as yet another demonstration that when it comes to track and trace of surgical instruments, ORLocate provides the best end to end visibility platform”

Our modular offering enables customers to start with the sterile processing department and gradually expand to the operating room - serving every use case, budgetary constraint and future organizational growth scenarios.
