Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

Skytron, LLC (http://www.skytron.us) introduced SkyTrac today as the latest addition to its offering of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies. SkyTrac is a line of RFID-enabled smart cabinets that help healthcare facilities automatically track consumable items used for patient care.

SkyTrac smart cabinets use RFID technology to automatically track products such sutures, stents and implants. The cabinets eliminate the need for manually tracking inventory and can send alerts for recalled or expired products. With SkyTrac’s data collection and analysis, hospitals can avoid under- and overstocking and capture critical product use data for patient billing. This latest RFID technology is designed to reduce loss and misplacement of supplies, all while improving efficiency and patient safety.    

“Skytron is already known to have the lowest total cost of ownership on our equipment such as our surgical lighting, tables and booms. We are excited to help hospitals reduce expense further by offering a technology solution that will provide savings straight to the bottom line while improving safety and efficiency,” said Skytron’s Chief Executive Officer, David Mehney.

SkyTrac smart cabinets feature exclusive technology by WaveMark, Inc. (http://www.wavemark.com). WaveMark reports that individual hospital departments with its technology have saved over 500 staff hours, reduced on-hand inventory by as much as 30 percent and experienced savings of $350,000 to $750,000 per year.

“WaveMark is pleased to partner with Skytron,” said John Wass, Chief Executive Officer at WaveMark. “SkyTrac represents both companies’ commitment to helping healthcare providers operate more effectively and efficiently.”
