9. March 2010 03:58

Mobile Aspects announced today that the University of Michigan Health System has signed an agreement to expand the use of its tissue tracking solution into the Operating Room at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. The solution, called iRISecureTM, uses the unique characteristics of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to automate clinical workflow associated with tissue tracking. In turn, a powerful solution is delivered to help care providers comply with process and procedural requirements from The Joint Commission and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the utilization of tissue and related products.

The solution will be deployed to manage the receipt, storage and utilization of implantable tissue and related products used for surgical procedures at the University of Michigan C. S. Mott Children's Hospital. The tissue tracking solution has been used within the Operating Rooms Department at the University Hospital for over a year.

"We look forward to expanding the Mobile Aspects tissue tracking solution into our pediatric surgical areas," commented Patricia Silverman, Business Systems Leader for the Operation Rooms. "Through its use of RFID technology, the solution delivers a simple to use system for our busy clinical staff that creates a highly automated process to help us manage our tissue effectively."

To demonstrate the capabilities of iRISecure and other solutions used in the perioperative care setting, Mobile Aspects will be exhibiting at the 57th Annual Congress for the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN). The event exhibition will be held March 15-17 in Denver, Colorado.
