Department of Health guidelines state that refrigerators used to store medicines and vaccines must be kept at a temperature between +2 and +8⁰C, minimising the risk of compromising the efficacy and safety of the products. Accurate and legible records of temperature monitoring must be maintained for audit purposes.
Processes are guided by the four Rs:
This means that practices currently need to record fridge temperatures at least once a day, logging current, maximum and minimum temperature readings. Temperature accuracy must be cross-checked and equipment monitored to ensure electricity supply to the medical refrigerators is not interrupted.
RemoteM is designed to automate these requirements, enabling practices to maintain accurate records quickly and easily, safeguarding products and processes.
RemoteM is a wireless refrigerator temperature monitoring system for the healthcare environment, enabling users to comply with all medicine storage requirements. It eliminates the potential for compromising the safety of such medicines and the resultant costly waste and disruption.
The sensing device is placed inside the refrigerator. It maintains a constant record, logging temperature data at regular intervals 24 hours a day, seven days a week, sending this to the cloud via a resilient base station.
Data is then available in real time on the cloud platform, allowing users to access and analyse remotely. The system generates immediate SMS, email and voice call notifications in the event of issues and power outages that may put valuable stock at risk.
