GI departments take control of their clinical inventory

We’re happy to report that GI departments are now enthusiastically joining the ranks of other specialty procedure areas – such as Cath Labs and EP, IR, and OR departments – in recognizing the need for greater clinical inventory control and supply documentation. Despite their being typically smaller departments, they use sophisticated and costly medical devices and products and are procedure intensive, making them perfect candidates for solutions like VueTrack™. In recent months VUEMED has implemented VueTrack™ at the GI departments of Massachusetts General Hospital and Washington Hospital Center, both major cosmopolitan teaching hospitals. MGH and WHC are forward-looking institutions committed to managing their inventory, improving product traceability, doing effective recall and expiration management, and achieving best-in-class clinical documentation. They should serve as models for other GI departments looking to save money and improve patient care.
