2DSurgical are providing the barcode reading equipment “SurgiScan / R+” into Jessa hospital in Belgium working with our reseller partners Besco & Nutrace. In 2012, Jessa Hospital (1.000 beds, 2 campuses, Virga Jesse and Salvator, 45,000 surgical interventions, 190.000 sets and 4.900.000 instruments a year) decided to build a new SPD at an external location.

Our main concern was the quality and control of the follow-up throughout the process. For the fitting out of the SPD and the technical facilities, Jessa Hospital opted for the highest possible quality standards. But even more important is complete Track & Tracing “From patient to patient” with tracing down to instrument level.
A number of priorities were set as criteria for selecting the software for the SPD of Jessa Hospital:

As head of the SPD, I am mainly concerned about quality, taking responsibility and tracing up to instrument level.
Until 2011, GZA used a self-developed software. Although we already had an efficient system with a form of tracing down to instrument level, we wanted a software that provided an even better guarantee of complete tracing, linked to the changes in the operation of the SPD and which could fully support the centralisation of the 3 hospitals. A number of priorities were set as criteria for selecting SteMaTo® for the SPD of the GZA hospitals:
