Stop Guessing. Start Knowing.

REVOLUTIONISING how we track surgical instruments using cutting edge RFID technology.

Near real time location tracking
of surgical instruments,
assets and patients.


Instrument Tracking

WHITECAT is the only Australian distributor selling the only RFID surgical instrument tracking solution that delivers visibility to the instrument level for cost and quality conscious healthcare facilities in Australia, who want to improve their dynamic and cohesive workflows during a time when the growth in our ageing population requires safer and greater surgical interventions.

Workflow Efficiency

By optimizing and facilitating operational workflows within the sterilisation department, it will positively impact the perioperative environment.  Through integrations we can harmonise systems and orchestrate disseminated delivery processes.  Through these initiatives we can reduce costs, achieve compliance, improve throughput, provide insights and increase patient safety.
