PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aethon is announcing that MedEx TraySafe, the next-generation kit and tray replenishment solution, has processed 1.2 million medications used in preconfigured kits and trays. In the 12 months since its launch, it has become the next-generation solution for hospitals that want to improve safety and efficiency while avoiding expensive RFID tags for processing kits and trays.
MedEx TraySafe ensures a safe and complete configuration of kits and trays by utilizing ultra-high resolution imaging to detect all their contents, streamlining the replenishment process. The single scan is acquired in less than 10 seconds for even the largest tray where it determines missing medications, soon-to-expire medications and lots that should be recalled. This saves the pharmacy department time in processing and replenishing the trays.
Moreover, TraySafe also detects misplaced medications, which is a crucial safety concern for pharmacy departments. Distributing trays with medications placed in the incorrect pocket can lead to serious adverse events. TraySafe is the only solution on the market that can ensure medications are in the correct location in the tray, thereby ensuring safety.
In a study published in Pharmacy Purchasing and Products by WVU Healthcare, tray processing time was reduced by 75% and validation errors were reduced to zero.
TraySafe also provides analytic tools that allow more rigorous operational standards to be achieved. A comprehensive slate of reports provides the pharmacy information about utilization of medications so they can reduce inventory costs. TraySafe helps manages recalls as it tracks all lot numbers in use throughout the distribution chain. Lastly, it improves audit compliance by tracking the location of all trays distributed and the medications within those trays – down to the expiration date and lot number.
