PITTSBURGH and PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Four
Rivers Software Systems, a leading provider of Computerized Maintenance
Management Systems (CMMS) for the healthcare industry and ECRI Institute,
an independent nonprofit that researches the best approaches to improving
patient care, announce the availability of new, real-time interfaces for
their inventory management and hazard and recall alert applications.
This new integration offers hospitals new interfaces between:
-- Four Rivers' TMS(R) and ECRI Institute's Universal Medical Device
Nomenclature System(TM)(UMDNS(TM)), Health Devices International
Sourcebase manufacturer codes, and Alerts Tracker(TM), a Web-based,
automated patient safety system for alert and recall management -that
offers efficient inventory management and more effective response to
alerts and recalls.
-- Four Rivers' TMS(R) and ECRI Institute's UMDNS and Sourcebase
manufacturer codes-for easier, faster and more accurate capital
equipment inventory control.
More effective response to patient safety alerts and recalls
For healthcare facilities using both Alerts Tracker and TMS, the new interface simplifies the process of effectively responding to hazard and recall alerts. The interface allows users to quickly determine whether equipment involved in a hazard or recall alert is in their inventories and provides the necessary steps required to respond to an alert.
"Because these two products can now be integrated, users are able to look up ECRI Institute codes from within TMS via a real-time link to ECRI Institute's web data," says James P. Keller, Vice President, Health Technology Evaluation and Safety, ECRI Institute. "Healthcare facility clinical engineers will save a tremendous amount of time managing equipment. And importantly, they can more effectively respond to hazard and recall alerts."
