Salt Lake City-based oneSOURCE has launched a new tissues/implants database for use in healthcare facilities across the country. Adding to the current offerings in the biomedical, dental, and surgical and equipment sectors, oneSOURCE’s expansion arms sterile processing and operating teams with an efficient way to manage manufacturer instructions for use (IFUs) for implantable materials and devices.
“We couldn’t be more excited to tap into this new vertical,” says Jack Speer, co-founder and president of oneSOURCE. “More than 80% of the healthcare facilities in the U.S. subscribe to our database for manufacturers’ IFUs for surgical and equipment and we aim to accomplish that type of adoption for this new initiative. We continue to keep patient safety as our top priority and are confident that this highly-anticipated launch will enable healthcare professionals to be equipped with the most reliable and readily accessible documents they need to successfully do their job while also adhering to standards set by regulatory organizations such as The Joint Commission and AAMI.”
By including exact and most recent versions of manufacturers’ IFUs for implantable tissues and devices, oneSOURCE is helping healthcare facilities stay compliant, company officials say. Based on the recommendations of database users, new features such as a customizable option—where users can create lists of frequently used IFUs—have also been added. The implants and devices encompassed in the database include human tissue allografts, cardiac pacemakers, stents, vascular grafts, repair meshes and slings, devices, orthopedic joints, among more.
“This implementation of a tissues/implants database allows oneSOURCE to provide our users with one of the most extensive platforms of IFUs in the industry,” adds Heather Thomas, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of sales and marketing of oneSOURCE. “With a more comprehensive database system, we are able to better support the needs of the facilities that partner with us and extend cutting-edge opportunities.”
oneSOURCE plans to introduce a database for facilities maintenance in the coming weeks.
