Health care services company Novation awarded Toshiba America Medical Systems its Innovative Technology designation for Toshiba’s Dose Tracking System (DTS) at the Innovative Tech Expo on Sept. 10, 2014, in Irving, Tex.

The DTS feature is available on Toshiba’s Infinix line, including the Elite, Select, and Essential cardiovascular X-ray systems. The system tracks cumulative skin dose distribution and peak skin dose. Recent enhancements to DTS include expanded frontal and lateral bi-plane coverage and improvements in the ability to account for tilt and cradle table movement.

Founded in 1998, Novation serves the 100,000 members and affiliates of VHA Inc and UHC, two national health care alliances; Children’s Hospital Association, an alliance of the nation’s leading pediatric facilities; and Provista, LLC, a supply chain solutions provider. A VHA and UHC company, Novation helps members control costs and improve workflow. Toshiba received the award after review by 200 attendees from hospitals around the United States who serve on a Novation council or task force and participated in the expo.

“Toshiba’s DTS helps provide a safer patient exam, allowing clinicians to focus on accurate diagnosis and better care,” said Olya Carter, RN and senior clinical manager at Novation. “DTS’s 85% approval rating from attendees reflects the technology’s benefit to patient safety and its effectiveness.”
