Meditek, in partnership with Skytron, is leading the way in supplying the Canadian healthcare market with the latest technology for smart cabinets. SkyTrac, a product line of cabinets integrated with RFID technology, makes it easier for healthcare facilities to automatically track consumable items used for patient care.
Using the RFID technology, SkyTrac smart cabinets automatically track products such as sutures, stents and implants, which eliminate the need for manual tracking. In addition to allowing hospital staff to spend less time on inventory, the cabinets also are able to send alerts for recalled or expired products.
SkyTrac’s data collection and analysis benefits hospitals by avoiding under and over stocking, and by capturing critical product use data for patient records. These latest smart cabinets are designed to reduce loss and misplacement of supplies, all the while improving efficiency and patient safety.
“Meditek is proud to be the Skytron supplier for Western Canada, as Skytron is always looking to enhance the healthcare product industry with the latest technologies. These smart cabinets are another example of Skytron’s and Meditek’s dedication to reducing hospital expenses through cutting edge technology, while improving safety and efficiency,” explains Meditek’s National Sales Manager, Marla Pozernick.
SkyTrac smart cabinets feature exclusive technology by WaveMark, Inc. WaveMark reports that individual hospital departments have with its technology 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.
Some examples of the benefits of SkyTrac smart cabinets:
•Automatic RFID data collection reads items in the cabinets every 30 minutes.
•Enforce regulatory compliance by tracking expiration dates and recalls.
•Eliminate redundant data entry with integration to HIS, EMR and ERP systems.
•Support purchasing with business intelligence: SkyTrac can produce predictive modeling, cost analysis and analytics.
•Fits into your existing space: Units can be placed side by side, back to back, freestanding or recessed.
