A transfusion management software will raise the standard of care for patients, improve safety, reduce waste and increase efficiency
Global Med Technologies, an international e-Health, medical information technology company, has announced that its Wyndgate Technologies division has licensed and deployed its SafeTrace Tx transfusion management software to Schuylkill Health of Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Schuylkill is also using the services of Global Med’s PeopleMed subsidiary to validate the systems before go-live. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
SafeTrace Tx, a transfusion management software designed to raise the standard of care for patients, improve safety, reduce waste and increase efficiency. SafeTrace Tx provides comprehensive tracking of orders, specimens, blood products, derivatives, and accessories with a complete testing and transfusion history in one consolidated record. These complex features will assist Schuylkill’s technologists in selecting appropriate blood products for their patients and will allow their hospitals to access patient data from any facility in their system.
Cheryl Gipe, head of blood bank section at Schuylkill Medical Center-East, said: Schuylkill wanted a common transfusion management system to monitor our blood banks and interface with our new CPSI laboratory information system. CPSI referred us to Wyndgate and one other vendor. In November 2008, after visiting a Wyndgate client to see the system live, we knew within 15 minutes that we wanted the Wyndgate SafeTrace Tx system. It is user friendly and has a great tracking system.
Our administration wanted the system in our hospital live by July 1, 2009. A typical implementation takes approximately nine months. With the help and support of Wyndgate, CPSI and PeopleMed, we were able to accomplish this in four months. Wyndgate’s team worked very hard to make sure we met the deadline. CPSI and Wyndgate made sure the interfaces worked properly and PeopleMed validated the system prior to go-live. I cannot say enough good things about the service we received.
