Launch of two new Microsoft solutions boosts SYMX healthcare offering
MIAMI, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- SYMX Technologies, an international provider of equipment life cycle management services for healthcare facilities, is announcing a new real-time business process solution to help hospitals leverage RFID data. This development makes SYMX one of the first U.S. healthcare companies to build on top of Microsoft Corp.'s newly launched BizTalk Server 2006 R2.
SYMX employs Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 to develop an automated and adaptive inventory visibility and managed workflow solution designed to dramatically improve patient safety. Hospitals can utilize the SYMX ATLAS (Asset Tracking Location Accountability System) to enable RFID data access, management and integration. The SYMX ATLAS uses active RFID to deliver real-time location and process automation for healthcare organizations and its patients, clinicians, staff and equipment. In employing Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, ATLAS delivers the "Connected Enterprise", so customers can connect real-time business processes and command intelligent RFID data, giving hospitals a competitive business advantage in terms of asset tracking, equipment management, patient safety and increasingly effective staff performance.
"Incorporating the Microsoft solution into our SYMX ATLAS will introduce the next generation in RFID," says Tim Callahan, president of SYMX. "It will provide our healthcare customers the required flexibility and management tools to support efforts in the automation of manual processes, productivity and clinician satisfaction as well as supporting efforts to enhance patient safety."
"SYMX has developed a comprehensive solution to support the diverse demands of the healthcare industry," said Anush Kumar, senior product manager, Microsoft BizTalk RFID. "With SYMX ATLAS on top of Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2, customers will have the latest in technology for rules management and RFID along with a proven platform."
SYMX is working with Microsoft to produce best-of-breed technology and comprehensive solutions to meet the ATLAS vision. For example, in practical terms, hospital equipment is often hidden and hoarded, lost or stolen. In frantic ERs or during shift changes, used and contaminated equipment can easily be used on patients. Sub-optimal hospital workflows can result in long waits for treatment. Administrative overhead is often added to physically manage assets and asset life cycles. ATLAS is designed to automatically monitor assets and workflows to reduce costs and improve patient safety and thwart the potentially dangerous impact of medical errors.
