April 27, 2007 — Mobile Aspects, a provider of RFID-enabled solutions to improve medical device and supply management for hospitals, has received a patent for its iRISupply clinical resource management solution.
Implemented in clinical areas such as interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, and surgical specialties such as cardiovascular surgery and endovascular surgery, the cabinet-based iRISupply system enables the provision of real-time information to effectively store, track, and manage the high-cost inventories used in surgical procedures.
The main protection provided by the patent applies to a product design with multiple shelving levels, deployed in an open or closed cabinet configuration, which creates stronger reading fields to ensure the highest levels of read accuracy and reliability.
In addition to the patent received, several additional patents on Mobile Aspects' technology have been filed and are pending approval.
The IRISupply system is part of the Mobile Aspects One System of CARE solution, which employs identification and information technologies to automate processes for clinical resource management by healthcare providers. One System of CARE uses Texas Instruments Inc.'s Tag-it HF-I portfolio of high-frequency ISO/IEC 15693 RFID tags. By automating the storage, tracking, utilization, and billing of clinical resources through RFID, healthcare providers realize enhanced care quality, increased productivity, accurate billing, and significant inventory cost savings.
Mobile Aspects will be featured in two sessions at the upcoming RFID Journal Live! Conference April 30 through May 3 in Orlando, FL. Mobile Aspects staff and clients will share information on how iRISupply is creating value for hospital organizations.
