Censis Technologies, Cantel Medical to Develop Differentiated Endoscope Reprocessing Software Solution

Censis

Censis Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fortive Corporation, and Cantel Medical Corp. announced a new long-term partnership to combine Cantel’s leading infection prevention endoscope reprocessing workflow portfolio with the surgical asset management and instrument tracking solutions from Censis.

The new enhanced, co-branded software solution will combine the CANEXIS Integrated Workflow Solution for Endoscopy from Cantel with Censis’ CensiTrac surgical asset management software to create the leading instrument reprocessing and scope tracking software available to the market. Leveraging Censis’ strengths in software development, cloud-based technology, and professional services and support with the leading position in endoscope reprocessing and infection prevention from Cantel, the combined solution will support endoscopy customers with best-in-class quality management tools, providing peace of mind and confidence that their facility is executing best practices to support patient safety and infection prevention.

This enhanced integrated workflow solution is a key tool in the fight to avoid the spread of infection, while helping to protect patients and reducing the economic burden on facilities, while also supporting improved efficiency and understanding of the use of critical medical devices in health care facilities. In today’s environment, efficiency and process consistency are increasingly critical to the day-to-day and long-term success of infection prevention, and this software application is an important resource for helping to ensure a consistent repeatable standard of care and process at each facility.

Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) are a complex and persistent issue in health care facilities.

Randy Smith, CEO, Censis Technologies said, “The relationship with Cantel will expand Censis’ leadership in surgical asset management and tracking solutions by further introducing innovative SaaS-based technology for the reprocessing of endoscopes. We are excited that the combined efforts of these two organizations will provide our customers opportunities to improve patient safety, workflow optimization and analytics.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Censis on this critical endeavor,” said Michael Spicer, President, Medical Business Unit at Cantel. “At Cantel, we strive to ensure our Complete Circle of Protection includes best-in-class offerings for our customers and patients, and by partnering with Censis, we are taking the next step toward providing greater efficiency, protection, and analytics to allow our customers to maximize their practice workflow while providing solutions designed to improve the safety and protection of their patients.”

Within the United States, users of the current CANEXIS Software can look forward to robust coverage, including implementation, upgrades, and technical support, as their service is enhanced through the co-brand partnership.
