Washington, D.C. (March, 2017)—Vysnova Partners and Champion Healthcare Technologies were recently awarded the Department of Defense (DOD) Air Force medical tissue tracking contract.
Vysnova will serve as the prime and Champion as the subcontractor on the project, which will deploy a commercial off the shelf (COTS) best-in-class software system programmed to track implants and tissues across four Air Force bases.
“We are excited to be working with Champion to support the Air Force by implementing software that is vital to ensuring compliance and patient safety,” said Carlos Rivera, Vysnova CEO. “Vysnova has experience working across DOD programs, and we look forward to expanding the scope of our work with the Air Force.”
The tracking solution automates the entire chain of custody for tracking tissue and implants — from the loading dock until each is implanted in a patient. The program provides Joint Commission compliance for tissue as well as a Meaningful Use 3 solution in capturing Unique Device Identification (UDI) information for all implants ranging from orthopedic to dental.
The software is a user-friendly, barcode scanning application that will help the DOD eliminate manual documentation and challenging expiration and recall investigation processes.
“We are honored to be working with the Department of Defense and specifically the Air Force on this project,” said Pete Casady, Champion Healthcare Technologies CEO. “Our service will provide peace of mind to the valuable men and women who serve and defend our country.”
The software can be used at any DOD location at which healthcare procedures involving implants are performed. With the new software, these facilities will meet Food and Drug Administration (FDA), DOD and other regulatory requirements, including the 2015 Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate that requires UDIs in electronic health records.
Three locations have already been installed, with one more location to be added by May 2017.
