PITTSBURGH--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Aethon is pleased to announce Memorial Healthcare System has selected MedEx TraySafe as their kit and tray management solution for all six of their hospitals. Located in South Florida, Memorial Healthcare System is one of the largest public healthcare systems in the nation. Each of their six hospitals will use TraySafe to automate the replenishment of trays and use its reporting and analytic tools to satisfy compliance and improve inventory utilization.
“TraySafe alerts us if inventory is missing, expired, or non-compliant but it also tells us if a medication is in the wrong location in the tray, allowing for an automated process to provide productivity improvements, safety, compliance and standardization benefits.”
MedEx TraySafe is the next-generation kit and tray management solution and has quickly established itself as the leading option for hospital pharmacies. It reconciles and records medication used in pre-configured crash cart trays and kits. Instead of using expensive and proprietary RFID tags, it uses industry standard 2D labels and ultra-high resolution imaging to detect all the tray contents in a single scan in seconds.
“Managing trays and kits has always been a manual process. Each hospital pharmacy replenishes and verifies the incoming trays but must also keep track of expiring medications and the lot controlled items for compliance purposes,” says Madeline Camejo, administrative director, Pharmacy Services, Memorial Regional Hospital. “TraySafe alerts us if inventory is missing, expired, or non-compliant but it also tells us if a medication is in the wrong location in the tray, allowing for an automated process to provide productivity improvements, safety, compliance and standardization benefits.”
“We are thankful Memorial Healthcare System chose the MedEx TraySafe product. It’s especially rewarding to know Memorial Healthcare will be using the product to manage their pediatric and neonatal unit trays at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital,” says Aldo Zini, CEO of Aethon.
