Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc. offers VistaTrak, a contrast media management system that provides a new management tool designed to help enhance patient care and safety, optimize inventory management and improve billing accuracy.

VistaTrak is a collaboration between Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals and Mobile Aspects, a provider of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)-enabled solutions for healthcare and hospital environments. The companies worked together to optimize Mobile Aspects’ proprietary iRIS platform for clinical environments that use contrast media. Bayer is the first company to offer a contrast media management system based on an RFID platform to automate manual processes and capture valuable operational data that currently cannot be found in any one system.

The system combines RFID technology of “tagged” bottles of contrast agent with a “smart” cabinet and a specially designed interface to capture, store and manage product utilization data easily and reliably while helping to reduce the risk of human error. It provides solutions for the use of contrast media, such as:
• Facilitating patient safety by automatically screening data from a patient’s electronic medical record (EMR) for, among other things, contraindications and prior adverse events
• Capturing information stored on the tag, such as NDC number, expiration date and lot number, automatically and in an efficient manner that supports compliance with accrediting organization requirements
• Providing contrast dosing information to improve billing accuracy and help address any existing issues with reimbursement or audits
• Tracking inventory to enable departments to order and manage inventory more efficiently and reduce waste

VistaTrak features a touch-screen interface and is available in two different sizes to address varying usage needs.
