YOUR PATIENT SAFETY SPECIALISTS IN ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING!

Today’s healthcare facilities utilize a wide variety of equipment that require consistent monitoring programs. Regulatory compliance and patient safety place the burden on department managers to see that proper protocols are implemented, including temperature, humidity and pressure differentials. Our healthcare customers have communicated to us some of the challenges they face when utilizing manual temperature management:

•  Time consuming process that can focus resources away from patients
•  Inconsistent documentation of corrective actions
•  Paper logs are often misplaced
•  Difficult to assess and verify inaccurate equipment
•  Remote locations (such as clinics) may be left unmonitored for extended periods of time
•  Consumer-grade equipment can be unreliable and often presents erratic temperature displays
•  Failure to implement consistent monitoring programs can compromise inventory
•  Manual programs only provide temperature snapshots without historical data

These challenges can be overcome by utilizing an industry innovation: TempTrak® Wireless Environmental Monitoring System. Conversion to a 24/7, wireless solution is an easy transition with the professional installation of our system and the countless support services we offer. When seeking a facility-wide solution, over 1200 hospitals have selected TempTrak, a product at the forefront of this technology for over 12 years. TempTrak provides users with a unique, customizable interface that eliminates the resource-draining expense of manual temperature collection.

TempTrak provides instant alert notifications that require acknowledgment and a corrective action. Whether you implement our 868 MHz/900 MHz or Wi-Fi solution, the system provides both real-time data and historical input that helps identify equipment malfunctions and inconsistencies.
 
TempTrak is most commonly used to monitor temperatures of stored medications, food, blood specimens, reagents and vaccines. It offers a comprehensive NIST, as well as ISO 17025, solution for any department that requires it. Whether collecting and sharing temperature data across town, or across the country, the system allows monitoring of an unlimited number of points in an unlimited number of locations or buildings with a single robust software platform, requiring minimal IT resources to maintain and manage your data. 

The Data Collected in TempTrak Assists in Meeting Record Keeping Compliances for:
Joint Commission, CDC, HACCP, AABB, AATB, CAP, FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and ISO17025.


TEMPTRAK CALIBRATION SERVICES

Annual calibration of transmitters and probes is highly recommended. We provide factory trained technicians to calibrate your TempTrak equipment and provide the required documentation to stay in compliance with regulations and requirements.

SysCalTM On-site Calibration System (in situ)
The SysCal™ process was designed for field calibration of NIST traceable TempTrak transmitters and solid simulator probes. The process calibrates the transmitter and probe together as a system in place within the customer use environment. There is no longer a need to send simulator probes back to the factory for recalibration. This in turn ensures greater accuracy, saves you money and eliminates any downtime.

The SysCal calibration process is compliant to ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005 and is traceable through NIST or other National Standards Institutes when performed by a trained Cooper-Atkins technician. A Certificate of Calibration is created and stored in the TempTrak software so it can be accessed at any time.


TempTrak Digital Calibration Certificate Storage
TempTrak now provides electronic storage of Cooper-Atkins Certificates of Calibration. During a regulatory inspection, you can pull up the necessary calibration records from within TempTrak to demonstrate compliance in real-time.

ISO 17025:2005 Compliant Calibration for Vaccines for Children (VFC) Products
The SysCal calibration process is compliant to ISO/IEC Standard 17025:2005 and is traceable through NIST or other National Standards Institutes when performed by a trained Cooper-Atkins technician. A Certificate of Calibration is created and stored in the TempTrak software so it can be accessed at any time.The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provides guidance on appropriate vaccine storage and handling practices and publishes a Vaccine Storage & Handling Toolkit.

This guidance is intended as the approved standard of care for all public and private sector vaccine providers.

The CDC recommends that monitoring devices measuring temperature in the storage units should be calibrated to conform to ISO 17025 standards. This calibration should provide a Certificate of Calibration that includes specific information such as documented uncertainty, calibration pass/fail results, device name and model number.

Cooper-Atkins offers factory calibration of transmitters and probes that conforms to ISO 17025 standards. This hardware is accompanied by a Certificate of Calibration for the transmitter and the probe. Annual recalibration can be done on-site while transmitters and probes remain in situ as noted with SysCal above. For more infiormation click here
