Tissue TrackCore Wows Joint Commission Surveyors at Two Customer Sites
Successful implementations of TrackCore are providing huge dividends for customer hospitals. The implementation and use of TrackCore is leading to successful Joint Commission audits and is easing the minds of OR managers who no longer have to fear whether or not their documentation is up to Joint Commission Standards.
In September of 2008, a Michigan hospital joined the ranks of successfully surveyed TrackCore clients. With regard to their recent Joint Commission reaccreditation survey, the RN and Chief Nursing Officer at the hospital said:
The physician surveyor remarked that he was "extremely impressed with the on-line tissue tracking program" and particularly liked our ability to quickly display the detail around all of the tissue samples in our program. He mentioned that the functionality provided by Tissue TrackCore was "very impressive" and that it was instrumental in assuring our compliance to the applicable standards.
We are completely satisfied customers of your product.
Additionally, in December of 2008, Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois participated in a “mock” Joint Commission inspection and experienced great results, thanks in part to Tissue TrackCore.
…we had a "mock" JCAHO inspection and one of the first things they asked to see was our tissue tracking system. I was able to easily show how our tissues are documented through log in to implantation. The examiner seemed impressed with our system, taking notes, including getting the TrackCore name. I felt very confident with the organized information that I was able to provide. This will be one less anxiety when the actual JCAHO inspection occurs.
