What is SterilWize?

The SterilWize instrument processing workflow management system will supervise all steps of your instrument processing Procedures, ensuring that all necessary steps are met, all necessary tests are correlated and each set of instruments is barcoded and tracked all the way from the beginning of the procedure to its use on a patient. With smart sterilizers, data can be collected directly from the sterilizers and correlated with BI incubator tests, BD tests and PCD tests.
Wristbands worn by the staff member are used to document which staff member was responsible for each step of the entire process, with automated time and date stamping. Built in AI technology also helps to read the results of the BD, BI, and PCD tests and to validate the results. Photographs of each BI, BD and PCD test are also stored in the system indefinitely. Data that would normally be stored on thermal paper printouts, is automatically collected from the smart sterilizers and stored electronically, thereby eliminating the risk of thermal paper printouts deteriorating over time.
All steps of the workflow are validated, and Reports are created automatically with all documentation needed to satisfy IPAC protocols. This system saves a tremendous amount of staff time and money, and it can ensure that there are no errors or omissions in the processes that could expose the dentist to a liability in the event of an inspection. In short, it delivers peace of mind to the dentist in regard to the instrument reprocessing cycle and documentation.
Some additional features are the “Resource Center”, and the “COVID-19 screening & documentation module” The Resource Center contains all pertinent documentation that applies to the province or state regulations, Office manuals, equipment manuals, along with continuing education videos and training videos to reinforce the necessary steps of the IPAC process. These are all Contained in this SterilWize tablet and on the web app and thereby eliminates the necessity of paper manuals or references in the sterilization area.
The new COVID-19 module provides a link for all patients to complete the necessary screening questionnaire from home or smartphone prior to entering the dental office for appointments. This data would then be merged with other data such as the patient temperature, which would be taken on entry to the building, and stored in SterilWize. A PDF report of the questionnaire and patient answers can be provided for storage in the Practice management system. This entire process can be accomplished without personal contact.
The Sterilwize system differs from all other barcoding or labelling systems currently on the market in Canada in one very important way. It starts collecting and recording data right from the beginning of the instrument reprocessing cycle including appropriate pre-sterilization requirements including biological indicator confirmation of equipment efficacy. No other system does this. Why is this important? First it completely validates the process as data is taken directly from the sterilizer rather than requiring manual input that could be inaccurate. Secondly, it significantly reduces staff time and potential human error. Thirdly, it allows for integration of all patient IPAC data in one convenient location.

Why SterilWize?

SterilWize is the most comprehensive automated system to achieve compliance with data validation, while saving time, reducing human error, and automatically generating required IPAC reports.

Excerpts from oralhealth article.

"There are many opportunities for errors in instrument reprocessing, any of which may cause a failure of the sterilization process and potentially put patients at risk of an infectious disease transmission.
The RCDSO and PHAC have clear guidelines for instrument reprocessing, that if followed, will help to minimize the risk of processing errors. There are always the human factors to consider, however. OHCW’s may be inadequately trained and/or inexperienced, or they may be rushed due to scheduling or staffing issues.
No matter what the cause, reducing the possibility of human error in instrument reprocessing can significantly reduce the risk of an infection prevention breach, as well as reduce liability to a dental practice or facility.
Automating this process can reduce risk, increase compliance and enhance efficiency."

Covid 19: Implications for Returning to Practice

It now appears that dental offices will be allowed to open before Covid-19 is totally eliminated as a risk to patients and health care workers. Opening will be conditional on dental offices following all IPAC guidelines currently in place as well as potential new requirements. A new reality will be the much higher likelihood that your practice may be subject to an inspection by public health. To understand why it is important to understand the circumstances that trigger inspections of dental offices.
