E3 has successfully implemented Lawson’s (NASDAQ: LWSN) Surgical Instrument Management (SIM) solution at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH & RC) in Riyadh. Lawson’s product, Surgical Instrument Management (SIM) enables hospitals to track surgical instruments and trays throughout their life cycle from procurement to assembly, packaging, sterilization, storage, distribution and utilization. SIM is a comprehensive application that reduces instrument costs, boosts staff productivity, and increases service levels.  The SIM solution increases productivity at every stage of the instrument life cycle, and ensures that surgeons have the right sterilized surgical instruments at the right time.

SIM is part of Lawson’s world-class healthcare software suit, is a web-based system, built on industry standards, and a scalable platform that fits a hospital’s IT environment and strategies.  Its major benefits are: availability of correct instruments where and when needed; accuracy and timely information on surgical instrument status and location; high quality assembly and quick comprehensive tray tracking; reduction of urgent instrument searches; better and improved tracking of instruments and trays.
