Safety and Recall

Soom for Patient Safety and Medical Device Recall

Soom makes it easy for patients to know if a specific device has been recalled.

Confidence and Clarity for Patients

With home care on the rise, patients, family members and home care providers are required to take a more active role in healthcare activities including the use of diverse and complex medical devices. In the often unknown and overwhelming experience of caring for a loved one, Soom seeks to provide confidence and clarity to ease patients and caregivers.

In 2013, the FDA passed the Unique Device Identification (UDI) law to identify unique medical devices through their distribution, to create a new level of openness and accountability, and ultimately to educate the public and save lives. Soom is the only company to marry mobile image recognition and open source data to stitch together meaningful data. The result is reporting on adverse events, recalls, and safety about unique medical devices with the ease of a mobile scan.

Coming Soon

In early 2019, Soom will deliver a new mobile scan app to share safety and use information about a medical device, signaling synergy within the entire medical device ecosystem. Built in collaboration with the FDA, the new Soom app will be the first and only platform to connect multiple data sources, including openFDA, UDI barcode data, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems.
