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

>Kerry Cummings, RN, program manager, clinical resources, Cape Cod Healthcare, Hyannis, MA. "Previously, recall notice review would require about 2 to 2½ hours and required a manual look-up for all notices. With Automatch, the review and identification of potentially affected products in inventory is about a 10-minute review."

Another facility reported that out of the 117 OR alerts published by ECRI Institute over the past month, six were "automatched" directly to its supply inventory, representing a 95% reduction in the alerts requiring careful scrutiny (of products not in its inventory) and a more reliable way of finding the six that require immediate attention.

"When manually searching inventory data, it's easy to miss products listed under 'aliases,' such as distributor-specific reorder numbers. Automatch is trained to find those products even when they are listed under a name other than the original manufacturer's catalog number," says Sacks.

Alerts Tracker Automatch users are experiencing:

  • Savings of time and effort—Automatch automatically flags alerts on purchased products
  • Increased productivity and cost savings—Automatch eliminates the need for time-consuming manual look-ups
  • Enhanced patient safety—Daily notifications increase reliability of alerts management, reducing the
    potential for missed or late alert notices, and failure to find affected products
