We were thrilled to introduce the new IntelliGuard® Anesthesia to anesthesiologists and pharmacists at ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2016 (ASA) and the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists (CSHP) events last month.
What is the IntelliGuard® Anesthesia?
IntelliGuard® Anesthesia is the first medication inventory optimization system uniquely designed to support anesthesia care teams. Using patented and exclusive RFID technology, IntelliGuard® Anesthesia automatically captures data on every medication removed or returned – with no scanning or manual recording required – allowing care teams to focus on patient care while providing pharmacists with accurate, real-time inventory information they need.
According to Jerry Fahrni, PharmD, who visited IntelliGuard®Anesthesia at ASA, the attention to detail in the product is clear, and “there are several little things that show how much thought went into the product.”One example is the ability to configure access to each IntelliGuard® Anesthesia drawer individually, which according to a comment on the blog post by Mr. Ray Vrabel, who visited IntelliGuard® Anesthesia at CSHP “…also allows the anesthesia provider to open and shut non-controlled substance drawers repeatedly during the case without a new login. This is very user friendly.”
The response to IntelliGuard® Anesthesia has been tremendous and we appreciate all the input and feedback we have received.
