Celebration to include public reception and ribbon cutting
NEWTON, Kan., (October 29, 2015) – Newton Medical Center is hosting a celebration for the launch of their new transfusion medicine analyzer, the ORTHO VISION™. The event is scheduled for Thursday, November 5 and will include a public reception from 10 to 11 a.m. and a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m.
“Newton Medical Center is the first laboratory in the United States with this advanced technology for transfusion medicine,” says Stefanie Hayes, MHA, CMPE, Vice President, Newton Medical Center. “This new technology further enhances our commitment to patient safety.”
This interactive, fully automated analyzer is the first-ever system with responsive automation. Responsive automation, a transformational approach to transfusion medicine, brings together process monitoring and workflow technologies. The system provides the ability to monitor every critical detail of the automation process. It also anticipates and responds to unique and unpredictable demands of the lab, in turn, allowing the hospital to provide enhanced patient care.
During the celebration, guests will hear from representatives from the manufacturer, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, and have the opportunity to view the new analyzer. The event will take place in the laboratory lobby of the hospital, 600 Medical Center Drive.
