NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital performed more than 47,000 surgeries in 2007, creating the critical need for a robust software system to manage transfusions. SafeTrace Tx is designed to support enterprise-wide centralized transfusion services (CTS), which is the management of matching patients to correct blood components across multi-facility institutions. These processes are supported by Wyndgate's patent-approved remote crossmatch function in SafeTrace Tx which helps to prevent excess blood waste by selecting inventory for transfusion from any of their networked facilities. The system also provides comprehensive tracking of orders, specimens, blood products, derivatives and accessories with a complete testing and transfusion history in one consolidated record. These software functions can help to raise the standard of care for patients, improve safety, reduce waste and increase efficiency in the blood bank.

Wm. Scott Dustin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Wyndgate Technologies, cites the ability of SafeTrace Tx to function in a multi-hospital setting as one of the key reasons NYP chose Wyndgate's transfusion management software. "It is vital for NewYork-Presbyterian to be able to move patients between facilities depending on the medical discipline required. The advanced functionality in SafeTrace Tx will allow the blood banks to share critical patient information between institutions and help their staff to more efficiently manage orders and blood product inventory."

Thomas F. Marcinek, President and Chief Operating Officer for Wyndgate Technologies, commented, "It is an honor to have been selected by such an outstanding institution. We are very proud that NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center has chosen to join the growing list of prominent university hospitals using Wyndgate's blood management software. NewYork-Presbyterian has a solid reputation as a leader in scientific research, advancing medical knowledge, and extending quality patient care." Mr. Marcinek continued, "Wyndgate appreciates the important role SafeTrace Tx will play in enhancing patient care and safety at NYP by enabling dependable access to critical information. We are committed to developing products which enhance patient safety and continue to be on the cutting edge of blood management technology. We look forward to a long relationship with NewYork-Presbyterian."
