Medical software company wins international award
A local maker of software for hospitals has been honored by an international publication focused on radio frequency identification.
Grand Rapids-based TrackCore said it was named the 2016 International Award winner by RFID Journal.
The award is given to a company that has demonstrated how the use of RFID has provided additional value to its customers.
TrackCore was honored for TrackCore Operating Room, a tissue and implant tracking software integrated with RFID enclosures.
Designed to reduce manual processes, TrackCore Operating Room tracks tissues and implants and provides quick and accurate data retrieval, recall and expiration alerts and integration with electronic health record and medical measurement systems.
The software works with RFID-enabled enclosures by Terso Solutions — cabinets, refrigerators and freezers — to allow for near real-time inventory visibility, secure storage, temperature recordings and warnings, improved time management and inventory control, without necessitating human interaction.
TrackCore said customers using both TrackCore Operating Room and the RFID-enabled enclosures have reduced error rates by 66 percent and saved $85,000 annually from wasted product and inventory visibility.
