Much of what is contained in your item master is often either outdated or otherwise inaccurate. Typically, only 72% of all items within a perioperative department are cataloged properly with a materials management information system (MMIS).iv The reasons for this failure are multifold. New catalog information isn’t added in a timely fashion. Discontinued items aren’t deleted. Codes or descriptions aren’t typed correctly. But the problem runs even deeper than that, as the very nature of the item master
itself is outmoded.
