ImageFIRST, the largest provider of linen rental and laundry services for outpatient medical facilities, today announced the launch of their ScrubVAULT System, an easy-to-use, compact cabinet that securely stores, dispenses and tracks the distribution of scrubs while simultaneously providing full visibility of inventory and usage. This new system, featuring quality scrubs from top manufacturers, adds to ImageFIRST’s portfolio of exceptional laundry and linen services tailored specifically to the healthcare industry.
The ImageFIRST ScrubVAULT System is a compact cabinet that houses scrubs chipped with radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology for accurate tracking and traceability. Healthcare professionals scan a unique code to open the ScrubVAULT System and select their scrubs, while the system automatically tracks what was taken. Once the transaction is complete, the system generates a usage report to inform inventory decisions, ensuring the desired scrubs are always available for each user.
“In today’s healthcare landscape, clinicians and administrators alike are tasked with delivering a superior patient experience while simultaneously working to reduce cost and workflow inefficiencies – a challenge that can be difficult to manage,” said Jeff Berstein, President of ImageFIRST. “The ScrubVAULT System is an innovative new tool that enables healthcare facility managers to fully automate their linen programs and avoid the issues that often come along with scrub inventory and distribution.”
From struggling to manage inventory and ensuring all clinicians have access to the proper scrub size, to tracking down and replacing missing scrubs – scrub inventory management is an essential yet often time-consuming element of running a successful healthcare facility. The ScrubVAULT System leverages ImageFIRST’s 3 Scan Checkpoint process that identifies and reports back on missing pairs of scrubs and their last known location. With traceability of all inventory, administrators can rely on the ScrubVAULT System to automate their linen program by accurately informing restocking needs in real time, enforcing staff accountability and minimizing loss with little administrative oversight needed.
The ScrubVAULT System is now available for purchase for healthcare facilities of all kinds. To learn more, visit http://www.imagefirst.com/scrubvault.
