Impinj today introduced a new portfolio of solutions aimed at creating efficiencies in the healthcare marketplace. Built on the Impinj platform, the solutions are designed to deliver timely Item Intelligence to help healthcare organizations improve their operational efficiency, increase quality and enhance patient care.
“The healthcare industry is undergoing fundamental shifts to streamline operational processes, institute tighter cost controls, and improve patient outcomes. We’re excited to work with an exceptional group of partners to deliver cost savings, new efficiencies, and better patient care,” said Eric Brodersen, Impinj President and COO.
The solutions announced today are developed by partners and built on the Impinj platform:
- Healthcare Asset Management & Optimization, developed by Conexus, gives healthcare providers real-time information including medical equipment location, status, availability, usage history, and automatic alerts if equipment is removed from premises.
- Hospital Supply Usage Tracking, developed by DeRoyal, automatically captures data about supplies consumed during surgical procedures and integrates the data with inventory, billing and surgical information systems. In addition to streamlining supply management, the DeRoyal system enhances patient care by ensuring timely availability of necessary supplies in the operating room which can reduce the likelihood of infections.
- Hospital Inventory Management, developed by ARC Healthcare Technologies, continuously tracks medical supplies within a hospital, monitoring entire supply rooms as well as individual supply cabinets and shelves and reducing staff’s valuable time to locate supplies. The system provides hospital staff with real-time inventory visibility throughout the health system and across the lifecycle of the supplies, including location, expiration dates, length of time in inventory, and movement of inventory from one supply location to another.
- Medical Supply and Device Tracking, developed by VUEMED, provides hospitals with a high level of visibility about the status, availability, and usage of clinical supplies and devices, and ensures accurate clinical documentation at the point of care. The technology also optimizes inventory composition, prevents waste, improves patient care through recall and expiration management, increases billing accuracy, and secures compliance with the FDA’s Unique Device Identification (UDI) regulation.
Impinj provides the most comprehensive and widely deployed RAIN RFID platform, wirelessly connecting billions of items every year. The Impinj Platform delivers the unique identity, location, and authenticity of items, known as Item Intelligence. The platform comprises tag chips with a unique identifier that attach to items, readers and gateways that identify the items in real-time, and software that allows healthcare organizations to leverage Item Intelligence in a range of applications.
Impinj will be at the 2016 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, February 29 - March 4, 2016 in Las Vegas, booth No. 11655 and feature healthcare solutions in the Intelligent Health Pavilion (IHP).
