Caribbean Hospital Becomes Latest SafeTrace Tx(R) User
DENVER, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Med Technologies(R), Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GLOB) today announced that its Wyndgate Technologies(R) division has licensed its Safe Trace Tx(R) software to the Cardiovascular Center of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean (CCPRC) to manage its transfusion service. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
SafeTrace Tx is a revolutionary software product designed to raise the standard of care for patients, improve safety, reduce waste and increase efficiency in the blood transfusion continuum. With the number of surgeries performed by CCPRC, having an efficient software system to manage transfusions is critical. CCPRC selected the SafeTrace Tx system to interface with their Keane Laboratory Information System because of Wyndgate's solid reputation and the software's ability to enable CCPRC's staff to effectively manage orders and blood product inventory, further enhancing patient care.
Will Willman, Wyndgate Technologies' Senior Vice-President of International Business Development, stated, "We are very pleased to be working with Cardiovascular Center of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, as well as partnering with Keane to provide CCPRC with valuable laboratory solutions. CCPRC, a prestigious hospital, is leading the way in cardiovascular care and providing treatments to many patients with life-threatening conditions in the region." Mr. Willman continued, "SafeTrace Tx will help CCPRC achieve its continuing commitment to provide high quality blood products and transfusion services to the patients served by its hospital network."
Gillie McCreath, Keane's National Account Executive, added, "CCPRC selected the Keane Laboratory Information System (LIS) to replace another vendor due to our product's robust functionality and seamless integration with our other Keane applications installed at CCPRC. We recommended Wyndgate to CCPRC because of their ability to work well with Keane's laboratory product, their expertise in this particular market, and their resilient product."
