ECRI Institute System is First to Automatically Find Recalled Products in a Hospital's Inventory
Date:8/27/2013

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A patient dies when a high-flow suction hose connected to a chest tube pulls on her heart muscle, causing a tear in the aorta. Another patient is fatally injured when a surgical clip dislodges in his body, causing internal bleeding.

When a device-related accident happens, manufacturers and the FDA issue urgent product recall or safe use alerts. But with dozens of medical alerts issued every week, how can busy hospital administrators make sure they don't miss the ones that could potentially harm patients?

Today, ECRI Institute (www.ecri.org) announces the release of Alerts Tracker Automatch™, the first and only system to automatically compare alerts on medical supplies directly to a hospital's inventory and notify appropriate staff daily, radically reducing the time it takes to find and address products affected by safety alerts and recalls.

Automatch is a revolutionary recall management solution that adds a new level of safety, reliability, and efficiency to a hospital or health system's alerts management process.   

"In an environment where it is becoming increasingly difficult to separate the signal from the noise, Automatch provides a much-needed antidote to overlooked, duplicated, or otherwise mismanaged alerts and recalls that can expose patients and organizations to unnecessary risk," says Eric Sacks, ECRI Institute's director of healthcare product alerts.

"Automatch is significantly more efficient and effective in the identification of affected products within our organization," says '/>"/>
