The healthcare industry is known for having strict guidelines, especially regarding the control and management of healthcare products. And since healthcare organizations are vested with the role of manufacturing, transporting, and storage of various healthcare products such as vaccines, medicines, and many other things, they are required to create controlled environments with adequate conditions for better management.

Over the years, systems to ensure that all biological products do not lose their efficacy and potency have been discovered. In the last decade or so, real-time monitoring has gained momentum with various platforms for helping healthcare facilities measure and report changes in multiple parameters such as temperature, humidity, and air being developed. Today, wireless temperature monitoring systems have become the unsung heroes in the healthcare industry. These solutions help maintain the temperature at critical levels and provide a means for measuring parameters in real-time and alarming when temp deviations are detected.

Are There Guidelines for Temperature Monitoring?

Various state agencies have been given the mandate to ensure that healthcare organizations handle and store medications, vaccines, and other products in the rightful conditions. The agencies have come up with guidelines that have set precedence for all facilities that warehouse, market, handle, store, or display medications on how to maintain them in the rightful conditions.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is renowned for offering regulations and guidelines that help healthcare organizations create controlled environments for biological products from the moment they are manufactured to the transportation and storage phases. They also have policies on how data should be collected, recorded, and analyzed in the same line. Conversely, WHO (World Health Organization) boasts the HACCP, which are guidelines that guarantee the proper storage of vaccines. Since the efficacy and potency of medical products and vaccines depend on whether they have been put in the rightful conditions, monitoring has become vitally essential.

And considering that different products require distinct temperature ranges, healthcare workers can ensure that the recommended temperatures are maintained through monitoring. Traditionally, temperature monitoring was done manually using a thermometer, and the readings recorded on paper. Surprisingly, there are still facilities that still do the same in this era and age.

However, the development of wireless temperature monitoring systems came as a reprieve for various healthcare facilities. Empowered with real-time wireless temperature monitoring systems, pharmacies, hospitals, drug manufacturing companies, and other healthcare organizations can ensure that all biological products and vaccines retain their potency and are safe for human use.

Wireless Temperature Monitoring Solutions

Due to the risky nature of medical products, minimizing human interaction with products is encouraged. Wireless temperature monitoring systems provide a more improved approach to apply temperature measurement sensors with a central computer repository to help nurses and pharmacists collect, tabulate, and analyze data remotely. The wireless system eliminates the need to run multiple leads and optical cables over long distances.

The systems allow you to oversee data management all round the clock in the seven days of the week. Unlike manual monitoring, which involves using qualified personnel to collect, tabulate, and analyze data, remote monitoring solutions such as the one offered by TempGenius ensures that data is logged and analyzed and stored in an online repository where you can access from whenever you want.
