Put the Right People in the Right Roles

With competency verification logic, CensiTrac gives managers the ability to block technicians from accessing certain workflows if they don’t meet the right competency requirements. This protects your department from encountering possible errors in workflow duties like sterilizer operation, biological indicator processes, and other competency-dependent procedures by preventing under-qualified technicians from even accessing those tasks.

Protect Your Technicians from Mistakes

CensiTrac also gives managers functionality to set up instructions, alerts, and training tips for each tray within the solution. These instructions then aid technicians with both visual and audible messages as they work through the sterilization of surgical instruments.

Some of the messages that can be set up in CensiTrac to aid technicians include:

  • Visual and audible alerts to notify technicians of mismatches between items placed in a load and the chosen sterilization method
  • Visual prompts for technicians to include biological indicators in loads
  • Alerts to remind technicians when it’s time for periodic sterilizer testing

Respond Quickly to Sterilization Recalls

Patient safety is paramount, so if a tray or instruments need to be recalled, CensiTrac helps you do so in just a few clicks.

CensiTrac makes recall management easier with reports providing load details at the tray or instrument-level along with the last scanned location of each recalled tray and marked instrument. CensiTrac also alerts anyone who scans recalled trays or instruments, providing your facility with another level of patient safety. With this added level of protection, you never have to worry if you missed an asset or if patients are in danger when you’re managing a recall.
