Ureteral stents tend to be be forgotten way too often, leading to infections and occlusions if left inside the body. Visible Health, a medical app maker, and Boston Scientific have teamed up to release a new solution to keep track of ureteral stents inside all of a practice’s patients.
The Ureteral Stent Tracker is both an app and a website where every patient’s status is updated. A clinician can simply scan the barcode of a packaged stent and enter it into a patient’s log. Other clinicians that work with the particular patient can be added to follow that patient’s status on the tracker, automatically updating the team member when a stent needs to be removed.
The app is HIPAA compliant, can be used by multiple users simultaneously, and can be used to send out emails to patients to notify them of any concerns.
