Dayton, Ohio-based Midmark RTLS, a real-time locating system (RTLS) technology provider focused on clinical workflow solutions and data insights, and Lake Geneva, Wis.-based Primex—which offers synchronized time, environmental monitoring, mass notification, and facility compliance—announce a new partnership to provide customers with RTLS solutions that expand from asset-tracking to patient flow, as well as environmental monitoring solutions that automate data-logging across facilities.

Hospital and health system investments can be costly, whether it be vaccines and tissue samples or IV pumps and wheelchairs. Maintaining these valuable assets is critical to preventing the costly waste of resources and delivering safe, timely, and effective patient care. Midmark RTLS and Primex have partnered to help customers optimize and protect their investments, company officials say.

Primex OneVue Sense, which proactively alerts users of any changes in environmental conditions—keeping vaccines, medications, and facilities safe—is viewable through Midmark RTLS Enterprise View. “Now, customers can purchase these critical solutions from experts in both fields, without sacrificing ease of support and purchasing,” says Susan Martin, vice president, Midmark RTLS. “Together, Midmark RTLS and Primex provide a partnership of best-in-class solutions, available through a single source—a local, trusted, certified system integrator.” 

In addition to tracking assets, Midmark’s RTLS technology also enhances staff safety and improves patient flow to ensure staff can find equipment anytime, anywhere to improve utilization and decrease inventory shrinkage, according to company officials. The addition of Primex OneVue Sense creates a comprehensive asset-tracking solution, they say, protecting sensitive materials while improving safety and patient care.

“This partnership will allow us to provide efficient and valuable solutions for customers through our mutual certified system integrators,” says Rob Klinck, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Primex. “Our goal is to make it easier for our customers to receive insight that will ultimately improve safety and efficiencies across their facility. Providing our customers with a seamless platform will enhance their experience.”

He adds, “We recognize that helping our customers, whether monitoring isolation areas, refrigerated vaccines and medications, or maintaining appropriate temperature and humidity throughout facilities, is crucial to keeping patients and staff safe. Accompanied with the Midmark RTLS solution, our tools and resources provide customers what they need to help improve patient care and safety measures.”
