LENEXA, KS, Nov. 15, 2016 – UMass Memorial Health Care in Worcester, MA, the largest healthcare system in central Massachusetts, has recently contracted with Mediware Information Systems, Inc. to implement HCLL™ Transfusion, HCLL™ Analytics, LifeTrak®, and Transtem™. The best-of-breed applications are the core software solutions comprising Mediware’s Blood Management Technologies division.
HCLL Transfusion, Mediware’s 510(k)-cleared transfusion management system utilized by hundreds of prestigious hospitals and the Department of Defense (DoD), features robust patient safety protocols and multi-site and multi-facility inventory management capabilities. HCLL Analytics adds performance management tools to the transfusion management system. These applications will be implemented across the UMass Memorial Health Care system, which includes four community hospitals and a Level 1 trauma center with advanced emergency services.
Mediware’s LifeTrak donor software, also with 510(k) clearance, and its Transtem cellular therapy software will be used at UMass Memorial Medical Center, which is the clinical partner of UMass Medical School. LifeTrak, relied on by the nation’s most renowned blood centers, hospitals, and the DoD, will reliably manage donor information and eligibility, product manufacturing, and distribution processes. Transtem, an innovative cellular therapy solution, will provide end-to-end process management from cell or material collection through all phases of manufacturing and, ultimately, product release for use in clinical therapy.
“With all four systems in place, we are confident that we can continue to maintain our commitment to improving the health of people in central Massachusetts through excellent care, comprehensive health services, and cutting-edge research,” said Dr. Robert Weinstein, chief of UMass Memorial Medical Center’s Division of Transfusion Medicine.
“Mediware is pleased to partner with the UMass Memorial Health Care System by providing our innovative, stand-alone applications and supporting seamless integration across the system’s multiple facilities,” stated Thomas Mann, Mediware’s president and CEO.
