In a world of cost concerns, shrinking budgets, and staff reductions, performing at optimal efficiency is critical. Stanley InnerSpace, a provider of storage and inventory solutions for the healthcare industry, showcased products that help hospital departments with lean initiatives at AORN 57th Congress, March 15-17, 2010, in Denver.
The company offers solutions such as its new triple-wide carts with glass doors to its inventory management software system with RFID technology as well as customizable solutions for every storage and inventory management challenge.
Also at AORN, CareFusion (NYSE: CFN) launched the Pyxis ProcedureStation™ Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system, a secure supply management system that helps hospitals manage high-value stents.
The Pyxis ProcedureStation RFID system is the latest technology added to CareFusion's Pyxis® Supply Technologies that provide a measurable return on investment and integrates with health care information systems. The system helps eliminate the need for clinicians to manually enter information and helps improve efficiency and workflow while reducing error-prone manual documentation.
“CareFusion is focused on providing a comprehensive approach to managing the operating room and assisting hospitals in streamlining processes to reduce the cost of health care,” says David Schlotterbeck, chairman and CEO of CareFusion. “The launch of the Pyxis ProcedureStation RFID system supports this focus by aiming to simplify item tracking, reduce inventory shrinkage and improve data capture and billing accuracy.”
In addition, other Pyxis Supply Technologies were featured at the CareFusion booth, including:
- Pyxis® Supply Technologies version 9.1: In conjunction with the RFID system, this new software release supports RFID technology and includes new features developed to help hospitals improve item availability, workflow and financial performance.
- A new, enhanced version of the Pyxis® JITrBUD device: A wireless open-access inventory management system that attaches directly to existing storage devices and communicates with the Pyxis SupplyStation® system, Pyxis ProcedureStation™ system and health care information systems to electronically document and reorder dispensed supplies. Enhancements include increased operating range, real-time visual feedback on device status and enhanced mounting capabilities.
- Commercial release of the Pyxis ProcedureStation™ system with Tissue and Implant module: A system that manages tissue, biologics and other implantables by creating an electronic chain-of-custody record from the initial receipt at the hospital to patient implantation or disposal.
