Smith & Nephew Acquire Two Orthopedic Supply Chain Applications BY MATTHEW JAFFE, MAY 14, 2015

Smith & Nephew acquired two surgical software applications, Virtual Backtable and TrayTouch, both of which are utilized by the company's orthopedic supply chain model for hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers (ASC).

The Virtual Backtable software maps each surgeon's preferences of patient preparation, operating room planning and surgical sequence. The software allows the hospital or ASC to streamline operating room trays by tracking and supplying surgical instrumentation utilized by the surgeon.

The TrayTouch software standardizes and documents the inspection of the cleaning, re-assembly and sterilization of each instrument sets.
