Vaccine Temperature Monitoring Solution

Automatically monitor the temperature of vaccine refrigerators and freezers to protect vaccine inventory and ensure patient safety.

Individual patients & population health depend on safe and effective vaccines

Many life-saving vaccines, including those for COVID-19, are sensitive to temperatures. Extreme changes can make vaccines ineffective or potentially unsafe. Through a wireless battery-powered sensor, and industry leading software solutions, CenTrak will generate alerts (audible, visual, sms & email) to specified staff members if temperatures begin to deviate from programmed thresholds.

Vaccines - Problem

Manual logging can produce slow, inaccurate results

Manual compliance reporting and twice daily temperature logs are inefficient and time consuming tasks. They are also subject to human error, often resulting in inconsistent or incorrect data. The CDC’s National Immunization Program recommends that, whenever there is any degree of doubt about the integrity of any vaccine or suspicion that it has been in a suboptimal environment, it should be clearly marked “Do Not Use” and safely discarded.

Automated Monitoring - Solution

Automating your vaccine monitoring with centrak ensures safety and compliance

CenTrak’s automatic temperature and environmental monitoring solution for vaccines enables compliance to CDC recommendations and makes certain that vaccines are stored at the appropriate temperature to avoid product loss or possible infection due to spoilage. Staff receive immediate notifications when temperatures begin approaching set parameters, saving healthcare facilities time and money.

6,000 doses of flu vaccines valued at $90,000 would have been discarded and repurchased if not for CenTrak.

One solution for safe vaccine storage and monitoring

Receive real-time alerts from CenTrak’s wireless environmental monitoring system whenever conditions move above or below user-set parameters. CenTrak software offers graph, alert, and report views which enable customers to take corrective actions on sensors, view and analyze data, and quickly pull compliance reports.

  • Temperature Sensors
    EM - Temp Sensor

    Eliminate manual monitoring

    CenTrak’s Temperature Sensor enables a cost-effective mechanism to measure the conditions of refrigerators, freezers, coolers, cryogenic tanks, and other storage areas for standard temperature measurements, ultra-low temperatures, and liquid nitrogen fill levels (-200 ºC to +125 ºC with select probes). Two ports are available for dual-zone monitoring or single-zone with optional door ajar sensor. The device's built-in LCD display is Vaccines for Children (VFC) complaint and allows for immediate temperature viewing, alarms, and local alert settings.

    • Configurable reporting & measurement rates (5 to 60 minutes)
    • 30 days of measurement data storage for retrieval in the event of a power or network outage
    • 2-year battery life with low-battery alert feature
  • Real-Time Alerting
    EM - Real-Time Alerting

    Real-time visibility into critical vaccine inventory

    Alert notifications are based on sensing value, device status (probe disconnect, door ajar, low battery), and process breakdowns. Real-time alerts and customizable escalation chains enable staff to take immediate action when conditions fall outside of safe parameters. When an alarm is triggered, the corrective action performed is logged in the system for sensor and alert management. With an integration to Active Directory, notifications can be properly routed based on user permissions and staff scheduling. Quickly configure hundreds of sensors, users, and alerts through a simple import/export tool. Alerts are sent via:

    • Email
    • SMS/MMS
    • Alarm, Lights, Strobes
    • Phone Calls
  • Regulatory Reporting
    EM - Regulatory Reporting

    Automated compliance reports reduce manual compliance-monitoring needs

    The system generates a variety of automated compliance reports and sensor history audit logs, based on individual devices or a customized grouping (i.e., departmental views). Automated environmental monitoring solutions for healthcare eliminate the need for costly manual documentation and the potential for human error.

    The right tech for the job

    CenTrak's Environmental Monitoring technology for healthcare provides a scalable solution for fully wireless deployments. The environmental monitoring sensors and suite of solutions operate under various network configurations, such as Active UHF (i.e., 900 MHz) and/or Wi-Fi (Cisco CCX, Aruba ACX, UDP) including support for WPA2 Enterprise deployments. Sensors are fully configurable in the field and support over the air firmware upgrades while BLE connectivity allows for simple setup.
