Misidentifying or other mishandling of tissue and bone specimens can be catastrophic for the patient and the hospital. Increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for tissue tracking, storage and handling are intended to prevent these problems, but they make a materials manager’s job more demanding than ever.
The extra documentation can be daunting. Among other things, hospitals must carefully track the tissue identification banks, licensing agencies, and registration information, as well as the name of the recovery or distribution center.
Handle the Compliance Challenge
The Omnicell Tissue Center addresses these challenges by enabling healthcare facilities to electronically manage and document tissue specimens. An added benefit is the efficiency you will achieve by automating manual tasks. The Tissue Center gives materials and operating room managers more effective control over tissue tracking – including supply movement, storage, replenishment, and billing.
