VUEMED’s founders Arnold Chazal and Lana Makhanik begin developing a business idea for creating a simple-to-use and affordable yet powerful technology for solving the many clinical inventory management, product tracking and documentation problems faced by hospitals and medical products manufacturers. The ultimate goal? Improve patient care, reduce costs and waste, and increase revenue.
Arnold and Lana successfully develop VueTrack, a software and web-based technology that was initially a project of Kieris Solutions, a medical market research and healthcare consulting company founded and led by Chazal and Makhanik from 1999 to 2007. Once they join forces with Pavel Rozalski, a former senior software engineer for Microsoft, they quickly advance the project from working prototype to full-fledged business.
VueTrack starts to be piloted in multiple hospital specialty departments, including cath labs, electrophysiology labs, interventional radiology labs, operating rooms, and GI/Endoscopy suites.
VUEMED is officially incorporated.
VUEMED expands distribution to the United Kingdom and Canada. VUEMED adds the latest, cutting-edge, passive Ultra High Frequency (RAIN) RFID technology to its VueTrack platform with the release of VueTrack-RF. VueTrack-RF tracks medical supplies, assets and people in real time with 99.5% accuracy; data capture is hands-free and reported live with hardly any human interaction.
VUEMED releases VueTrack-UDI, a passive UHF (RAIN) RFID technology for ensuring that Unique Device Identification (UDI) data encoding on RFID tags complies with the FDA’s UDI regulation.
VUEMED releases VueTrack-Mobile, a hand-held barcode scanning/RAIN RFID reader that does everything that VueTrack and VueTrack-RF do, but on-the-go.
VUEMED introduces the newest technologies in its ecosystem of healthcare supply chain solutions: VueSurg, VueTray and VueBin. VueSurg is an app for managing, tracking and documenting all surgical instruments from sterile processing to patient care. VueTray is a touchscreen solution for managing and documenting orthopedic implants and trays all the way to the patient. And VueBin is a Cloud-based RAIN RFID-powered Kanban inventory management system.
VUEMED releases VueSync, a Cloud-based master catalog and update service with more than 500,000 SKUs with associated UDI info that provides 24/7 up-to-date, detailed, and accurate medical supplies, products, and devices information.
