Northfield, Ill., May 30 2023, – Responding to increased healthcare provider demand for digital and scalable inventory management solutions, Medline has enhanced its supply chain optimization (SCO) portfolio with a new partnership with IDENTI Medical.
A dynamic and global leader in point-of-use data sensing solutions, IDENTI Medical designs, develops and produces advanced data collection solutions for surgery, procedure and clean supply room settings. Last year, Netanya-headquartered IDENTI ranked in the top 100 fastest growing companies in Israel, while its SNAP & GO™ image recognition technology won the 2022 Frost & Sullivan Best New Product Innovation Award.
SNAP & GO maximizes the efficiencies in ORs and procedure rooms, while increasing patient safety by digitally recording product information and usage at the point of use.
