    The History of our Partnership

    Sanford Health is the largest rural health system in the United States with 46 medical centers and over 220 clinic locations. Tecsys’ partnership with Sanford Health dates back to 2014, when Sanford began automating complex perioperative supply tracking. By 2018, we worked together to integrate Tecsys' Elite™ Healthcare POU with Sanford's Epic EHR system for enhanced procedural item scanning. With the flexible Tecsys platform, Sanford Health has streamlined intra-facility logistics and improved supply utilization within their perioperative practice.
