TraySafe™ automates the replenishment and tracking of medications used in pre-configured trays and kits.
Make it fast.
Make it right.
Make it safe.
TraySafe is the next-generation tray and kit replenishment solution. It automates tray replenishment, tracks expiration and lot information, and allows the pharmacy to control and track the distribution of inventory.
The solution can be deployed via the cloud, virtual machines, or locally hosted. Be assured your IT staff can have it their way! In addition, TraySafe doesn’t require any interfaces to other systems so getting up and running is very straightforward.
Best of all, it ensures the tray is correctly configured with all material in the correct location in the tray – and it does all this without the use of expensive RFID tags.
Check out the study published in Pharmacy Purchasing and Products on the safety and efficiency gains TraySafe provided West Virginia University Hospitals.
There are a number of challenges in hospital pharmacies when it comes to managing the trays and kits used throughout the hospital. Replenishing trays and kits is an ongoing and daily process. Further, critical events such as lot recalls, drug shortages, or visits from compliance organizations all drive additional requirements for the pharmacy. Most times, the systems and processes in the pharmacy are not sufficiently routine or automated enough to make these occurrences non-events.
Thirty minutes per set to refill
Additional rework due to errors
Right medication in correct pocket
Multitude of configurations
Crash carts are audit magnets
Expiration control, lot control, disposal
TraySafe is a next-generation solution that automates replenishment, safety, and tracking processes associated with trays and kits. It improves efficiency of tray replenishment by 90% while simultaneously ensuring safety of every tray processed. Pharmacists recognize that safety of the trays is even more important than the speed to replenish the trays – but TraySafe offers both safety and speed. It is different from RFID based solutions since it uses imaging and standard 2D bar code labels. This allows TraySafe to identify items that are misplaced in the tray in addition to identifying those that are missing. Since we don’t rely on expensive RFID tags you avoid the cost of those supplies making the ROI on TraySafe better than other solutions available.
