WaveMark CIMS(TM), an RFID-based inventory management solution is installed

at UMass Memorial to track critical medical supplies.

BOXBOROUGH, Mass., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of an ongoing effort to achieve the highest level of care, UMass Memorial Medical Center located in Worcester, MA, the principal teaching hospital for the University of Massachusetts, has installed WaveMark CIMS(TM), an RFID-based inventory management solution for tracking critical medical supplies in their Cardiac Cath, Electrophysiology and Interventional Radiology Labs.

After assessing the need to automate the tracking of high-value medical devices to better ensure availability and control costs, UMass chose WaveMark CIMS as the most comprehensive and accurate solution for managing the flow of items such as cardiac stents, balloons, catheters guide wires, pacers, ICD's and coils. UMass Memorial has one of the largest Cath labs in the Northeast, performing over 2500 interventional procedures a year. With an inventory valuation of roughly $1M on any given day, inventory management is a significant function.

"We have well managed Labs, yet our inventory control was a manual process.
