Simple process documentation with DataDiary – also available for Miele small steam sterilisers

Gütersloh, February 3, 2020 No. 005/2020
  • Data transfer and recording of up to 9 machines simultaneously

  • New app for iOS and Android from March onwards

On a daily basis, Miele's DataDiary app saves time spent on the documentation of instrument reprocessing in surgeries. And now, the four new Miele small steam sterilisers are also able to port data wirelessly to tablet PCs. This practical solution, which has been available for use on washer-disinfectors for just less than two years, requires access to a WiFi network. Up to 9 new Miele models can now interact with the app.

Connection to the network is via a WiFi stick in the case of Cube and Cube X sterilisers; a communication module is still required for all washer-disinfectors. Once access has been established, mobile devices receive reprocessing data after each process step – without any further intervention on the part of staff. Employees log into the system by entering their user ID or using an NFC chipcard to approve reprocessing records once a cleaning or sterilisation cycle has ended.

DataDiary also takes care of reprocessing records. This saves valuable time, for instance in transferring data from a machine to the surgery computer, a job still done in many surgeries using a USB flash memory.

To facilitate the communication of Cube and Cube X sterilisers with the app, an updated version is required which will be available from March onwards for iOS and Android operating systems. Users requiring a broader range of functionalities and, for instance, digitally signed reprocessing records still have access to the Segosoft Miele Edition software version.
