STERIS Corporation and Sonitor Technologies Sign Supplier Agreement


Sonitor Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real time location system (RTLS) solutions, and STERIS Corporation have recently signed a non-exclusive agreement that assigns Sonitor Technologies as a selected RTLS supplier for STERISs RealView Visual Workflow Management Software. This advanced solution is a live, patient-centric, Lean visual management system that transforms the entire perioperative continuum of care into a high-performance environment.

We are pleased to announce our strategic relationship with STERIS to provide real-time location solutions for the perioperative suite, says Arvid Gomez, president of Sonitor Technologies. Sonitors ability to deliver bay-level accuracy of patient location allows visibility at key points in the perioperative workflow for healthcare providers and for patient families. We have recently deployed several perioperative projects with STERIS and look forward to continuing to provide real-time solutions for healthcare provider communication, awareness, and workflow efficiency within the perioperative patient care environment.

Randy Tomaszewski, director of marketing for perioperative solutions for STERIS, added, STERIS and Sonitor have also successfully deployed real-time patient workflow efficiency solutions within GI labs, cardiac cath labs and other high volume, procedure-based areas outside the OR.  The RealView Visual Workflow Management Software provides hospital leaders with real-time, enterprise-wide visibility and dashboard performance analytics, within and throughout their hospitals. This allows health systems to achieve best practices leadership, through real-time benchmarking, data sharing and continuous efficiency improvements. It also facilitates scheduling optimization and increased surgical room use across their healthcare systems.

Through the integration of Sonitor tag sensors with STERIS analytics, reporting and alerts, physicians, managers and perioperative staff have access to critical outputs such as the workflow and location of patients and supporting equipment, and any delays or exceptions in the schedule. This awareness can help drive on-time procedure starts, room turnover and real-time procedure updates for families, which in turn can optimize patient and staff satisfaction.
