A Healthy Partnership Solves Hospital Problems

For 10 years, some hospitals have been using bar codes and TrackCore Operating Room software to monitor biologic tissues and surgical implants, to comply with safety standards established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and The Joint Commission, the not-for-profit organization that accredits hospitals. But the manual process is laborious and often an afterthought for nurses, whose first priority is hands-on patient care, says Alan Brander, TrackCore's VP of national sales and a former chief nursing officer for a regional hospital.

TrackCore and Terso formed a partnership that resulted in the creation of TrackCore Operating Room With Integrated RFID Enclosures, launched in September 2014. To date, more than 30 U.S. hospitals have adopted the RFID solution, with many more existing customers preparing budgeting groundwork for the upgrade, MacGregor says. In addition to meeting the original goal of facilitating an automated workflow, he notes, hospitals that have deployed the solution are saving money, reducing errors and improving patient care.
