Olympus UNIFIA

UNIFIA, Olympus’ reprocessing documentation and asset management system, utilizes the proprietary, built-in RFID technology of Olympus endoscopes and OER-Pro reprocessors to track an endoscope’s movement throughout the GI lab. Wireless scanners, used to track an endoscope’s journey, collect information on the asset’s real time location, patient interactions and user performance. This tracking creates a permanent electronic reprocessing and location record that associates patient, user and endoscope data together in a single system. Data can be used in Unifia’s Infection Prevention and Materials and Asset Management modules to identify areas for improvement, including accuracy of reprocessing documentation, staff performance, asset utilization and repair history.
