Integrated System Aims for Enhanced Supply-Chain, Patient Safety

April 29, 2009 – An interoperability agreement involving the VUEMED VueTrack inventory management system and the Noblis RAMAS recall management service is designed to enhance supply-chain and patient safety services to customers.

The integrated system will benefit hospitals that manage expensive perishable medical supplies in specialty areas such as cardiac catheterization, interventional radiology, electrophysiology, endoscopy and surgical specialties.

VueTrack reportedly gives healthcare providers the ability to identify and remove recalled products as soon as they are announced. Its real time, Web-reported analyses of inventory transactions provide the information needed by hospitals to avoid waste through expiration management, dynamically adjust inventory composition to physician preferences, reduce overall budget tied up in inventory, and to deliver immediate savings.

RASMAS is known to deliver timely and actionable healthcare product recalls, comprehensive workflow capabilities, and access to a growing online community of healthcare professionals. The Web-based service can be used to drive patient safety best practices, manage costs, and reduce exposure to product recall liability throughout the enterprise.

The VUEMED-Noblis relationship aims to deliver a comprehensive, user-friendly solution to hospitals looking to improve patient safety and care, and at the same time improve operational performance and generate significant savings.
