All about patients’ health and safety

Patients need to know all about an implant or other sensitive medical device installed in their body.

How can a patient make sure a medical device is safe for his health, was not counterfeited, was carefully handled and stored and doesn’t contain any noxious substance?


OPTEL offers end-to-end traceability solutions from the manufacturing plant to the patient’s bedside in the hospital.

Track your medical device up to your end customer

Traceability plays a key role in the supervision and improvement of medical devices’ quality.


Though it is crucial to know if a medical device is defective, knowing what the components are, who manufactured it, when and where, as well as how it was handled and stored, is all very important and useful to all members of the chain, from medical device manufacturers to the end customers.


Serialization, by giving a unique serial number to any of the medical devices manufactured anywhere around the world, is the first step for a traceability solution.

For medical device manufacturers

A traceability solution offers huge competitive benefits not only at the plant level but up to the patient’s bedside:

  • By tracking each device, thanks to its unique serial number, it becomes easy to know what the selling price for one specific device was. That way, there is no more risk of reimbursement fraud. Furthermore, the implementation of traceability solutions will also improve the management of returnable medical devices.
  • By tracking and recording the conditions of handling and transportation of sensitive medical devices, such as humidity and temperature, the responsibility of mishandling will be on the right person, not on the manufacturer.
  • From inspection to serialization and aggregation, traceability will help reduce risks of recalls. If ever a recall occurs, its cost will be limited to a number of serial numbers rather than whole batches.
  • Traceability solutions allow aggregation and tracking up to the bedside. This helps convey a positive and safe image of the supplier to both the medical profession and the patients.
  • At the manufacturing level, on production lines and stations, traceability increases the efficiency of the production by reducing set up time and easing production planning.
  • Traceability is also a key element in helping reduce product counterfeiting and stolen products.
  • Finally, implementing a traceability solution will provide data on the process that will help the medical device manufacturer improve its performance.


Furthermore, a traceability solution can:

  • Increase inventory visibility through the supply chain
  • Improve warehouse management

For the medical profession

Traceability helps optimize the inventory control and management at the hospital.

Should a recall happen, all the operations will be eased with a traceability system already in place.

It also allows the surgeons and doctors to know exactly what medical devices they are using for their patients.

For the patient

Traceability in medical devices guarantees the origin, quality and history of the devices that will be used or implanted in his body.
