Get Ready for The Joint Commission with iRISecure Software

As healthcare providers, ensuring compliance with regulatory bodies like The Joint Commission, the Office of Inspector General (OIG), and State Departments of Health is paramount. Navigating these requirements can be challenging, but with the right tools, it becomes manageable and even advantageous. Enter iRISecure, a state-of-the-art tissue and implant tracking solution designed to meet and exceed these regulatory demands while offering significant operational benefits.

Meeting Regulatory Requirements

iRISecure is meticulously designed to help hospitals meet the ever-changing regulatory requirements from various oversight bodies. Our system not only helps you stay compliant but also enhances the efficiency of your operations. Here’s how iRISecure ensures you are always audit-ready:

  • Electronic Compliance Logs: iRISecure provides electronic logs specifically designed for regulatory agency inspections, including those from The Joint Commission.
  • Comprehensive Tissue Tracking: Our system tracks all hospital tissues, whether they are ambient, refrigerated, or frozen.
  • Access Control: We monitor and control access to high-cost inventory items such as tissue, bone, and related products, ensuring security and accountability.

Positive ROI with iRISecure

  • While tissue inventories may comprise a small percentage of the overall operating room inventory, they often face the same issues of overstock and underutilization. iRISecure helps address these challenges, delivering a positive return on investment (ROI) through:
  • Increased Cash Collections: Clients have reported a 20% increase in cash collections, amounting to $750,000 at an academic medical center.
  • Improved Charge Capture Accuracy: A pediatric hospital saw a 30% increase in charge capture accuracy, translating to $5,600 per case.
  • Reduced On-Hand Inventory: An academic medical center achieved a 12% reduction in on-hand inventory within 12 months of implementation.
  • Cost Reduction: Community hospitals have seen a $250,000 reduction in annual costs associated with product expiration.
  • Administrative Efficiency: Staff time spent on administrative tasks has been reduced by 30%.

Enhancing Clinical Documentation

Accurate clinical documentation is crucial for patient safety and financial health. iRISecure improves documentation processes by capturing all tissues and implants used in each procedure. This ensures:

  • Comprehensive Charge Capture: Our system has shown an 18% improvement over barcode-based capture systems.
    Revenue Assurance: By accurately documenting all items, hospitals can ensure they receive the revenue owed for their work, avoiding penalties from insurers.

Eliminating Manual Data Entry

  • Manual data entry is time-consuming and error-prone. iRISecure uses RFID technology to automate data capture, integrating seamlessly with your EMR. This leads to:
  • Hands-Free Data Capture: Automatically track lot numbers, serial numbers, and expiration dates without manual entry.
  • Seamless Integration: Data is sent directly to your EMR, billing, and materials management systems.
  • UDI Compliance: Track the unique identifier of each device, ensuring compliance with Unique Device Identification (UDI) requirements.

Optimizing Inventory Control

Effective inventory management remains a challenge for many hospitals. iRISecure automates these practices, providing:

  • PAR Level Optimization: Set optimal PAR levels for maximum efficiency.
  • Expiration Alerts: Receive real-time alerts for expiring products.
  • Product Recall Management: Simplify product recalls with real-time search capabilities.

Seamless Integration with Hospital Systems

iRISecure integrates directly with your hospital’s EMR, materials management, billing, and other information systems, ensuring:

  • Effortless Documentation: Real-time documentation of item usage without manual entry.
  • Customized Interfaces: We tailor our interfaces to match your hospital’s systems.
  • Data Security: All data is stored behind your hospital’s firewall, ensuring its security.
