New IMS Contract Offers Amerinet Members Software for Tracking Tissue, Implantable Devices

Share Article

A new agreement with IMS provides Amerinet members significant savings on Ready Tracker-Tissue, a web-based inventory management application that tracks not only tissue but implantable devices. The software helps hospitals prepare for new FDA regulations that will require a unique device identification system (UDI) for all medical devices. The standardized use of bar codes will enable health care providers to more efficiently handle product recalls, manage inventories of biologic and non-biologic implants and comply with JCAHO and HIPAA regulations.

Under a new contract with IMS, Amerinet members can receive significant savings on Ready Tracker®-Tissue, a web-based inventory management application that tracks not only tissue but implantable devices. The agreement is timely: Facilities that begin tracking implantable devices now will be prepared when FDA implements a mandatory unique device identification system (UDI) for medical devices.

"Many of our customers already use Ready Tracker - Tissue to track both biologic and non-biologic implants," said Whitney Ligon, Director of Corporate Software for IMS. "When mandatory standardization becomes a reality, these hospitals will already have a system in place."

Ready Tracker - Tissue already helps facilities manage product recalls, prevent the expiration of unused tissue and comply with Joint Commission, HIPAA and FDA tissue regulations.
