December 23, 2013
December 23, 2013 — Mobile Aspects announced that it has been awarded the patent for its iRISupply radiofrequency identification (RFID) system that supports the storage and management of high-value medical devices and surgical products used in specialty areas of a hospital.
The patented iRISupply smart cabinet uses RFID technology and real-time data to automate clinician workflows and streamline communication processes for supply chain management. This solution enables an increased level of automation and accuracy by eliminating the cost, time and manual efforts spent to store, maintain, track and manage high-value materials in surgical settings of hospitals such as cardiovascular, interventional radiology, oncology, orthopedics and catheterization labs.
The iRISupply smart cabinet is the 14th patent issued to the Mobile Aspects portfolio of RFID solutions for the hospital surgery environment, and the company has similar RFID smart cabinet patents in Europe. Earlier this year, Mobile Aspects received the patent for its iRIScope smart cabinet that helps with the storage, utilization and reprocessing of flexible endoscopes.
The Mobile Aspects iRISupply RFID smart cabinets are being utilized by a large number of leading hospitals including seven of the U.S. News & World Report “Honor Roll Hospitals 2013-14.” The solutions have helped these hospitals improve profitability, accountability, efficiency and meet patient safety and compliance regulations.
