BlogRemote Temperature Monitoring Systems for Healthcare


E-Control Systems (ECS) offers a complete wireless temperature monitoring solution for the healthcare industry. Our fully automated enterprise-wide solution makes it easy to monitor your entire healthcare operation, so that you can focus on patient care, instead of manually logging critical data that is needed to comply with many standards, including: The Joint Commission, AABB, GMP, FCC, Vaccines for Children (VFC), and FDA. NIST Traceable Calibration and re-calibration is available directly from the factory, or on-site.

Healthcare : Wireless Temperature Monitoring

Using our Patented Intelligent Sensor (U.S. Patent No. 9,064,389) and our free App for your iOS Apple and Android devices, you will be able to automatically and effortlessly monitor all of your equipment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and receive alerts should any of your equipment readings fall out of range.

ECS enables you to collect all of your FDA required data by simplifying 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance. With the IntelliSense™ family of products, you can automatically monitor all of your equipment 24/7. A variety of sensors can be used to monitor temperature, humidity, room pressure differential, warmers, as well as monitor when doors are opened and closed.

Covid-19 Vaccine Cold Chain Monitoring

The CDC has issued initial guidelines for Covid-19 vaccine storage and handling, to minimize vaccine loss and ensure maximum efficacy.  The cold chain storage and handling requirements for Covid-19 vaccines will vary in temperature from refrigerated (2 ⁰C to 8 ⁰C) to frozen (-15 ⁰C to -25 ⁰C) to ultra low temperature (-60 ⁰C to -80 ⁰C).  The initial vaccines will need to be stored in -80 ⁰C freezers and shipped in dry ice thermal shippers. 

Keeping precise temperatures and other parameters is the only way to ensure the efficacy of the vaccine.  ECS has been working with vaccine manufacturers and the CDC over the years and our software has built in analytics to analyze all the necessary parameters to determine if vaccine efficacy has been affected throughout the entire cold chain: from distribution, through travel, to delivery, and up until the point of administration of the vaccine. 

ECS uses NIST Calibrated probes in glycol and also special probes designed specifically for ultra low temperatures to ensure accurate and precise temperature readings.  Each piece of hardware has a datalogger incorporated into it making sure that no temperature is ever missed throughout the entire cold chain.

With ECS, you have the flexibility to monitor a wide array of items based on your custom applications, including but not limited to:

  • Pharmacy
  • Blood Bank
  • Plasma Bank
  • Laboratory
  • Operating Room
  • Isolation Room
  • IT Room
  • Emergency Room
  • Radiology
  • Nurses’ Stations
  • Nutrition Services

A variety of sensor types allows you to monitor temperatures of 4 ⁰C refrigerators, -20 ⁰C freezers, ULT freezers, LN2 tanks, incubators, CO2, oxygen, differential pressure, moisture/water leak, clean rooms, main power interruption, and room temperature/humidity monitoring. All data is stored in our secure cloud with server redundancy and automated system backups. Each sensor is available with or without a display, and comes standard with data loggers, which will store data in case of a network or power outage. As soon as network/power is restored, the data loggers will transmit all of the data to the system.

With ECS’ wireless temperature monitoring system, you receive a complete operation management system, which comes standard with Preventative Maintenance and Asset Management modules. The result is a cost effective, easily installed solution that simplifies your compliance requirements, improves safety, prevents inventory loss, and ultimately reduces your overall workload.
