Surgical Kit Tracking

Use Case

Improve the availability and utilization of surgical kits

Having surgical kits ready and available for use is an essential need for hospitals and surgical centers. The extreme temperatures that surgical kits are designed to withstand drive up the costs of these essential components. At the same time, those temperatures create challenges for tracking those components electronically.

As a result, many facilities still rely on manual tracking for their surgical kits. With the rise of health networks, kits will get moved between facilities based on need. Higher levels of inventory are ordered to compensate for this, to ensure availability of surgical kits. IoT methods to track this essential equipment are needed that can withstand the high temperature requirements. 

Supported Industries

We have a solution

Tracking built to withstand the high temperatures of sterilization.

This solution use case, provided by Tech Mahindra on the MindSphere® platform, provides surgical kit tracking for medical device manufacturers, health networks, hospitals, and surgical centers.

Asset tracking tags are designed to withstand steam sterilization up to 140 degrees Celcius and last 12-18 months. These tags include GPS and are compatible with cellular and wifi options.

Tracking extends from sales rep inventory and shipping process all the way through hospital utilization to ensure kits are delivered in a timely fashion and deployed at the desired location.

With better visibility to assets deployed in facilities, surgical device suppliers and hospitals can improve their utilization of existing assets and drive down the high costs of acquiring new kits due to poor inventory management. 


  • Rugged tags built to withstand high temperature of sterilization. 
  • Integrated GPS to support location tracking of kits. 
  • 12-18 month battery life for asset tracking tags. 
  • Supports indoor and outdoor tracking of equipment through cellular and wifi connectivity options.


  • Improve availability and utilization of surgical kit assets. 
  • Reduce costs of acquiring excess inventory due to poor tracking of existing surgical kits. 
  • Real-time tracking helps ensure that equipment is ready and available for time-sensitive operations.
