The clinics previously managed paper-based records alongside several software applications which resulted in data-entry errors. They needed an automated solution to comply with new French regulations on medical device traceability during operations.
The group contacted Ehtrace, a Zebra partner, which has designed healthcare traceability solutions for the last decade. Ehtrace recommended Zebra’s Android-based TC51-HC combined with its own scanDM application.
“We chose Zebra’s TC51-HC touch computers because they are certified for use in hospitals and medical environments, and they help increase the productivity of our clinicians so they can spend more time on patient care,” said Charlotte Dubois, project manager, Ambroise Paré Surgical-Medical unit.
The clinics use the Zebra TC51-HC computers and Ehtrace’s scanDM application in operating theatres to capture real-time information and analysis of medical product use as well as consolidating operation and patient data. Each surgical procedure requires up to 140 medical devices. This solution can also manage inventory, trigger use-by date alerts, track usage and facilitate order processing in drug stores and hospital storage units. The Hexagone Neuilly Group’s goal is to cut in half the time spent on inventory management.
