Surgical Instruments & the Data Every Surgeon Wants

Data makes the world go ’round when it comes to investment in Sterile Processing for staffing, equipment, and other resources. But what kind of data do we even get out of our surgical suites? What do our surgeons know about instrument data and what do they need to know? 

On this Season 19 episode of “The Surgeons We Serve,” a season focused on spotlighting the intersection of surgeons & surgical instruments, we are joined by Dr. Martyn Knowles, Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at UNC Health Care, to discuss data gaps and opportunities when it comes to the surgical instruments coming through our departments.   Join us as we chat about how the absence of data impacts instrument flow, what it looks like to bring data up the chain of command in a healthcare setting, and what your Sterile Processing team can be doing today to work towards a world where clean surgical data is a reality. We hope you can join us!   You can connect directly with Dr. Knowles at  Season 19 episodes are individually approved for 1 CE, so once you finish this interview, you can download your CE certificate immediately by passing the short quiz linked below each week.
