Medline Industries, Inc., introduced the first-of-its kind surgical procedure pack identification system to help improve OR efficiency, eliminate waste, and enhance patient safety. Featuring easy-to-read color-coded labels and forms, Medline’s EMPOWER system features easy-to-read, color-coded outer packing labels and matching color-coded insert forms that easily identify each pack and reduce the chance of selecting the wrong pack. Traditionally-designed procedure packs, however, look almost identical to each other – regardless of the specific surgical procedure. Most traditional packs are wrapped in blue surgical draping with no outer identification label and a hard-to-read packaging insert placed on top of it, which makes it virtually impossible to identify individual packs quickly and easily.
