Intuitive, maker of the da Vinci Surgical System, announced that it will offer its Instructions For Use (IFU) documents on oneSOURCEdocs.com, an online database that stores instructional use documents (IFUs), Operator Manuals and Service Manuals for surgical instruments and equipment.
The company, which develops robotic-assisted technologies designed to improve clinical outcomes of patients through minimally invasive surgery, has joined a growing number of manufacturers who participate in the oneSOURCE Manufacturers’ Advantage Program. Over 2,500 manufacturers are currently working with oneSOURCE, worldwide, to improve access to IFUs and Service Manuals needed for the preventive maintenance of biomedical equipment.
Heather Thomas, CMO, executive vice president of sales and marketing for oneSOURCE, says many oneSOURCE subscribers have been asking for Intuitive’s manufacturers’ instructions to be added to the database.
“By uploading their documents to the oneSource database, Intuitive can help their clients gain access to IFU and Preventive Maintenance documents quickly through the oneSourcedocs.com portal,” Thomas said.
oneSOURCE provides numerous advantages to manufacturers, free-of-charge, through its Manufacturers’ Advantage Program. The program enables manufacturers to make their IFU documents available to 80 percent of the U.S. health care market, as well as internationally, communicate updates, and provide 24/7 IFU document and Service Manual access to mutual clients for compliance with accreditation requirements and patient safety.
