MECHANICSBURG PA, USA,?? — ?? /MARKETWIRE via COMTEX/ — Versatile Systems Inc. has announced that Summit Health has implemented Versatile’s proprietary SyncSeer(TM) Asset Tracking and Temperature Monitoring solution at hospitals in Waynesboro and Chambersburg, PA.
Utilizing both wired and wireless temperature probes and tags, SyncSeer(TM) provides a unique solution that allows the use of the best sensor technology from several vendors. Automating previously manual processes allows staff additional time to focus on patient care while meeting regulatory compliance mandates.
“As the primary healthcare provider for Franklin County, we have many pieces of equipment and storage units that must be monitored for temperature changes,” said Sam Shatzer, Vice President of Information Systems for Summit Health.
“The solution offered by SyncSeerTMhas allowed us to automate our manual processes, saving our staff valuable time. We will now receive real time alerts on temperature issues. The alerts help to eliminate the potential of damaging tissues or medications due to temperature issues.”
Summit Health reaches across greater Franklin County to provide health care services in areas previously under served. The non-profit parent organization of Chambersburg Hospital and Waynesboro Hospital, Summit Health is the region’s primary health care provider and largest non-governmental employer.
SyncSeerTM manages and monitors temperature sensors at hospitals to help maintain compliance with regulatory authorities. The system can be used for monitoring refrigerators, freezers, blanket warmers, dishwashers, and mobile carts – any piece of equipment where temperature consistency is critical.
The system replaces the time consuming and error prone manual system currently in place at many hospitals. SyncSeer(TM) automatically generates an alert when a temperature sensitive item deviates from a predetermined temperature range.
Temperature readings can be taken as often as every minute every 12 hours or any point in between. All readings are maintained within the system. This allows detailed reports to be generated, providing a forensic trail to regulatory compliance.
“Summit Health has a history of being an innovator in the health care field. By incorporating a solution like SyncSeer(TM) into their suite, Summit continues to show leadership in application of technology,” said Bob Joyce, President, Versatile Systems Inc.
“In addition, SyncSeer(TM) positions Summit Health to take advantage of many data sets beyond temperature, including Real Time Location Services (RTLS) and Voice over IP (VOIP). By automating routine operations, caregivers at Summit Health can focus on patient care, which is what really matters.”
