Vizzia Technologies, a provider of real-time location systems (RTLS) for healthcare organizations, has expanded its Environmental Monitoring offering with new technology that is fully compliant with key federal guidelines from the U.S. FDA and the U.S. Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Vizzia has also expanded its support of Atlanta-based Emory Healthcare to include the Emory University School of Medicine.

“We rely upon Vizzia to automatically monitor our facilities and provide real-time data that supports our industry clinical trials and federally funded drug studies,” says Susan Rogers, RPh, director of investigational drug service for Emory University.

Vizzia’s enhanced Environmental Monitoring technology protects patients and critical medical supplies for hospitals and clinics nationwide to include COVID-19 vaccines. Specifically, real-time alerts let clinicians know if a refrigerator, freezer, or a room deviates from desired conditions to protect important and expensive products.

Below are the key environmental monitoring features:

  • Conditions: Temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, pressure
  • Temperature range: -200°C to 260°C
  • Humidity range: 0% RH to 100% RH
  • Regulatory compliance: FDA and NIST
  • Automated readings: Every 15 minutes
  • Reporting: Scheduled and on-demand
  • Alert monitoring: 24/7 response team

To Dave Wiedman, chief commercial officer of Vizzia Technologies, this technology has strong implications for the healthcare sector. “Vizzia is the only healthcare RTLS provider to offer a fully-managed service that provides live 24/7 customer service that proactively contacts clinicians to ensure alert resolution,” he says.
