Wyndgate Technologies (Denver, Colorado), a division of Global Med Technologies, reported that Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC; Hackenssack, New Jersey), a university-based teaching hospital, has purchased both SafeTrace software to manage its donor center and SafeTrace Tx software to manage its transfusion service, making it Wyndgate's newest Vein-to-Vein client. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
HUMC, affiliated with The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-New Jersey Medical School, says it is the largest provider of inpatient and outpatient services in the state and the fourth largest provider of inpatient services in the nation based on admissions.

HUMC recognizes this essential role and its need for a system that can meet its current needs and help it continue to keep abreast of changing regulations."
