Xenex Disinfection Services has unveiled the TrackMate disinfection tracking system designed for hospitals, in what is claimed to be a world-first.

TrackMate is a small device that attaches to Portable Medical Equipment (PME) and records each disinfection event, securely storing the data in a portal for compliance reporting.

It is specifically developed to meet The Joint Commission standard IC 02.02.01 EP1, which focuses on PME disinfection.

By leveraging TrackMate, hospitals can automate the tracking and reporting of disinfection events, eliminating the need for manual collection of data and improving compliance.

Peer-reviewed studies have shown that TrackMate significantly increased the number of disinfection events and ensured 100% tracking and reporting.

The device replaces traditional low-tech monitoring methods, such as paper checklists and equipment tags.

TrackMate can also be used for tracking cleaning activity in various areas of healthcare facilities.

Xenex co-founder and chief scientific officer Dr. Mark “Tuck” Stibich said: “Healthcare workers can’t look at an IV pole and know when it was last disinfected, which is why TrackMate is such a game changer.

“For the first time, disinfection/cleaning event status is being delivered to the user at the point of care. Nurses can quickly look at TrackMate and see when the last disinfection/cleaning event occurred.

“The CDC has stated that Candida auris is commonly spread via PME – so it’s incredibly important to know when the PME was last cleaned.

“Infection preventionists and hospital compliance personnel are going to be very excited to learn that we have a solution to IC 02.02.01.”

TrackMate was invented by Dr. Chetan Jinadatha, with support from the VA Technology Transfer Program and funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Central Texas Veterans Healthcare System.

The device is compact, senses moisture or UV light, and transmits data daily to an online database for easy access and analysis.
