ConnectSx, a Mokena, Illinois-based startup providing SaaS solutions that support the surgical value chain, launched the vTrakr free mobile app for iOS/Apple devices. vTrakr is designed to help medical device sales reps simplify the process of managing inventory and surgical cases.
vTrakr users can manage inventory on hand with a secure digital record that simplifies highly manual processes. Capabilities allow users to:
- schedule and manage surgical cases
- assign inventory to scheduled cases
- request inventory from manufacturers or distributors
- manage expirations, mark device use instantly, record purchase orders and electronically generate and share device use tickets and invoices to accelerate payment
Inventory can be entered via UDI barcode scan, FDA device search, history search or basic text input.
“We know surgical device reps have many demands on their time,” said ConnectSx CEO Chris Riedel. “Managing inventory should help them generate new value, not create additional burden. We’re confident this tool will not only improve individual efficiency, but will help support positive patient outcomes, which is why we are offering it for free.”
Earlier this year, ConnectSx launched UDidentify, an app that lets medical device manufacturers, sales reps and healthcare providers scan HIBCC and GS1 unique device identification (UDI) barcodes, validate them against FDA’s Global UDI Database and return critical device information to the end-user.
