IPA, LLC (surgical scrubs and healthcare linen automation), today announced the launch of its next generation scrubEx® technology. Further advancing the scrubEx product line, the new model offers innovative enhancements designed to re-engineer scrub management and distribution for hospitals and health systems.

“This launch marks a major milestone for IPA,” said IPA President Joe Gomes. “As part of our ongoing commitment to better serve our clients, we’ve taken the market leading product and made it even better. This next generation of scrubEx delivers significant advances that make it easier and faster for hospitals and staff to manage a compliant surgical scrub program. Over 1,000 hospitals have installed scrubEx to help lower costs, improve service and prevent the risk of hospital-acquired infections, and we are proud to partner with them on that mission.”

The most notable technology advancements for scrubEx include:

  • While maintaining the market’s fastest dispense time, scrubEx enhances the user experience with a simple, intuitive graphical interface. A 7″ integrated touchscreen has been added and provides users with easy guided instructions with visuals and scrub size selection functionality when needed.
  • The next generation machine improves administrative efficiency and satisfaction with intelligent monitoring of both the scrubEx dispenser and receiver. Hospital staff can now view real-time inventory either at the machine or by utilizing IPA’s clearView™ software. Additionally, real-time alerts can be sent via text or email as critical thresholds are met.
  • Further improving machine performance and service levels, scrubEx is enabled with advanced diagnostics and remote services, which offers remote management of firmware updates, machine reboots and real-time troubleshooting for proactive response and support.

Since its inception in 1995, scrubEx has been providing hospitals with a cost-effective scrub management solution that practically eliminates scrub losses and reduces processing costs, while driving efficiency, staff satisfaction and patient safety standards. scrubEx is available in three sizes, which includes Large Volume, Medium Volume and Small Volume, and is the customizable to any size hospital.
