NanoMed Tracking, Inc.

Marking medical instruments with invisible nano quantum dots to track large numbers of instruments within hospitals

Problem

Hospitals are facing an ever growing need to reduce costs, increase efficiency and productivity, as well as patient safety. The rising number of surgical procedures is creating an urgent demand for technologically advanced processes:

  • Less than 3% of hospitals have a system to track at the instrument level
  • Count discrepancy in 1:8 surgical trays with an average of 20 minutes to resolve results in significant revenue loss

Since operating rooms are the main revenue generating space for hospitals, hospitals are seeking state-of-the-art technology that will support effective management of operating rooms to maximize performance and efficiency. Additionally, health reform is driving the need for hospitals to capture, store, aggregate, and retrience clinical information via electronic mediums.

Solution

NanoMed manages surgical instrument inventories & automates tray assembly through the use of a revolutionary optical Quantum Dot technology. The Company has developed a revolutionary solution to these challenges as an innovative system that:

  • offers an immediate ROI
  • enhances patient safety
  • improves instrument management
Surgical tray

​What makes the NanoMed system unique is the revolutionary Optical and Quantum Dot technology. A unique polymer/QDot marker that is completely invisible to the eye, and unobtrusive to the surgeon, is applied to each instrument. Then, within seconds, our optical scanner reads the unique markers on the instruments in the surgical tray and identifies if the tray is complete or has any missing instruments via a data management software system.

Business Model

NanoMed plans to work on 3 to 5 year contractual agreements on four revenue streams, including:

  • Software Licensing
  • Service Agreements
  • Instrument Marking Fees
  • Hardware

Market

Hospital expenditure in surgical equipment

The US hospital market is fragmented, with no dominant player. Of the 5600 hospitals in the US, less than 3% track individual surgical instruments.

  • $1.1B US Market
  • $2B Global Market

Competitive Landscape

single-snapshot-solution

The competitive landscape is very fragmented with no one company owning any significant market share. The competitor solutions such as barcodes and RFID tags have significant gaps and are inefficient. They are difficult to apply, costly to apply and manage and not user friendly. The market is well positioned for a technology solution such as NanoMed Tracking to establish itself as the industry standard.
