Complete Endoscope Reprocessing Traceability
SteelcoData Ares is a web-based and cloud-ready traceability software designed explicitly for tracking and monitoring each activity implemented in your ARES department, guaranteeing the full traceability of your endoscopy workflow, thus significantly improving the reprocessing efficiency and performance. Meeting the operational requirements of the endoscopic room, the software promptly and efficiently traces and provides relevant information to maintain safety and high productivity.
The software can be integrated with different types of equipment to collect further data and information. With a smart storage infrastructure, it efficiently stores all endoscope history relevant data, ensuring any search to be fast and straightforward, seamlessly visualizing all the details needed. SteelcoData Ares supports hands-free input from both barcode or RFID identification systems.
RFID Hands-Free Process
Steelco ARES platform RFID hands-free process starts from pre-washing units to AERs and Drying Storage Cabinet. Traceability identification of operators and scopes is made safe with the touchless use of bracelets or badges. No need to touch the device control panel anymore, thus reducing potential cross-contamination risks and enhancing nurses’ and patients’ safety.
A Complete Suite
SteelcoData Ares is part of the suite of different tailor-made solutions developed by Steelco. It is designed to meet the operational requirements of the endoscopic room, track information in a timely manner, and provide information to maintain a high level of production.
The system is able to perform an effective control on each activity carried out, thanks to a technologically innovative IT traceability tool that improves the reprocessing performance of endoscopy departments in an integrated way.
To properly function, SteelcoData Ares has to be connected to the basic software of the suite, SteelcoData Live which acts as the connection between Steelco machines and any software processing the data collected.
Endoscope Reprocessing Traceability Workflow
SteelcoData Ares is a complete software application designed to track endoscopes.
The software architecture is based on different control points that each endoscope must pass to be processed in order to move to the next area
When endoscopes move to the next area in the endoscopy department, the system checks whether all previous steps have been successfully undertaken. Operators are acoustically advised if operations have been done correctly.
Machine data at hand
A user-friendly web interface shows real time machine statuses (video-wall or tablet wi-fi or workstation): at start it can be connected to a single workstation to be then configured to any size of facility.
Thanks to its cloud-based nature, it can be used at multiple locations within the healthcare network and staff is able to access it anywhere there is an internet connection and a Windows or iOS base device.
It is intuitive to use with excellent application and technical support available up to 24/7 in a multitude of languages, depending on contract.
SteelcoData Ares provides operators with a comprehensive overview of the use of the endoscope.
Through desktop or mobile devices, it is possible to check-in the endoscopes at the point of use. SteelcoData Ares also links all the cycle’s relevant information of the endoscope reprocessor to the endoscope ID, and collects:
- Operator, date and time of use registration
- Clinic/endoscopy room where the instrument is used
- Nosological and patient identification data
- Doctor information
The system has been developed following the HL7 protocol for data exchange.
SteelcoData Ares can be implemented in time with additional modules according to the specific needs of the endoscopy department.
Web Based - Cloud Ready
The software offers a user-friendly interface completely web-based and cloud-ready: users can log into the system through a standard web browser.
Configured using access policies that allow operators to display only information in their area of competence.
Monitoring Analysis and Reporting System
Full and detailed reports to analyze key performance indicators and production costs. Electronic record-keeping and invoice automation.
Designed to be integrated with different types of equipment, with administration and finance, warehouse systems, and other software applications.
The system and all the devices are remotely monitored by the Helpdesk technical assistance service.
The safest patient care and infection prevention for endoscopy and CSSDs departments, regardless of their size and application focus. With one of the broadest portfolios for endoscope reprocessing, Steelco covers the entire workflow of endoscope reprocessing from pre-cleaning to storage.
