Cardinal Health, Inc., introduces the Pyxis Scrub-Station, an automated system that electronically secures, tracks, and distributes the garments worn by healthcare professionals. Pyxis ScrubStation products enable hospitals to improve workflow efficiency and inventory control, reduce costs associated with scrub management, and help ensure product is always available to authorized users. The new version of the Pyxis ScrubStation system offers mobile alert capabilities to enable time-sensitive response by hospital support personnel. Issues such as stockouts and return stations reaching full capacity will trigger an automated alert via e-mail, various paging systems, or other mobile devices. Support personnel can then attend to the situation in a timely manner. To help control access, the Pyxis ScrubStation system offers the Pyxis BioID fingerprint identification system. This feature verifies a user's identity with a fingerprint scan before granting access to the Pyxis ScrubStation unit. Since fingerprints are unique and can't be shared like conventional passwords, this method helps ensure only authorized users access the unit.
