Sécurisation du circuit des Dispositifs Médicaux Implantables en Cardiologie Interventionnelle au CHU de Toulouse

Abstract : Toulouse University Hospital (TUH) uses each year 71,000 Implantable Medical Devices (IMD) valued at over 31.5M€. To deal with current issues of Traceability, such a volume of implantations needs a controlled medical and logistic system. An IMD must be traced to the patient, promptly ordered and received to be available for another implantation. It is essential to take care of these concerns in order to comply with current regulations and secure the IMD circuit. To meet these challenges, the Hospital relies on the concept of Information System Urbanization (ISU) using interfaces between business software. To assess the feasibility of the ISU, a pilot project limited to one service has been conducted to secure IMD circuit. The Interventional Cardiology Unit (ICU) volunteered to test this evolution. ICU has a high implantation activity evaluation of urbanization will be proposed. If this pilot project validates the stated, 4800 IMD per year or 5.6M€, which represents 21% implantations performed at TUH, and it traces IMD on a specific software called Hemolia®. Traceability and performance results were first summarized on the circuit previously developed by ICU. Implantation, stock Decrementation, Order and Reception phases were audited. One can remove from these audits corrective actions to lift the blocking points before the integration of the IS. This analysis allows us to identify the tests which have to be conducted in view of the IT integration of these 5 steps. A virtual cabinet has been created. It ensured stock monitoring and allowed decrementing stock contemporary to implantation. Downstream decrementing tests were conducted. When stabilization of the ICU circuit is reached, a new performance objectives, it can be deployed by step to all users of IMD units in TUH.
