Case Study

Veteran Affairs Medical Center

The Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center in Miami, Florida once spent countless hours each week manually entering product codes into systems for hundreds of medical implants. To stay on top of correct product names and expiration dates, to prevent inadvertent human error, and to positively impact patient safety, InVita Healthcare Technologies’ UDITracker and GS1 barcodes were introduced.

Why the VA Chose InVita Healthcare Technologies:

  • Enabled the transition of the legacy database to standardized, unique device identifiers (GTINs) and cleansed imperfect product names and non-unique manufacturer catalog numbers
  • Improved operating efficiency with estimated savings between $5,000-$10,000 per month
  • Increased patient safety through elimination of human error with previous manual tracking process
