“This is a significant milestone that reflects the healthcare market’s continued focus on safety, cost control and efficiency in pharmacy operations,” said Gordon Krass, CEO “Our success is a result of our modular and scalable approach to intelligent inventory management solutions that support a broad category of critical drugs and supplies used in hospitals, health systems and adjacent healthcare markets.”
Intelliguard® Solutions combine advanced RFID hardware and workflow processes with business intelligence software to enable informed inventory decision making. This data allows hospital and health system pharmacy teams to optimize inventory levels, track the conditions in which drugs are stored, support expiration control and stock rotation, and thoroughly and efficiently manage recalls.
Critical inventory includes both high use and high value procedural and emergency medications and supplies – wherever and however they are distributed for clinical care throughout an enterprise. Intelliguard® Solutions touch nearly every part of the pharmacy distribution process, with item-level traceability and automated processes that provide visibility across a wide spectrum of pharmaceutical inventory – from anesthesia and emergency drugs, to refrigerated drugs, to controlled substances and hazardous drugs. The Intelliguard® Solutions product suite includes:
- Intelliguard® Kit and Tray Management System: RFID-enabled hospital pharmacy automation for kit and tray management, enabling faster replenishment and reduced errors in distributing procedural and emergency medications.
- Intelliguard® Linked Visibility Inventory System™: RFID-enabled medication inventory management systems for secure access and inventory control of anesthesia medications in the operating room.
- Intelliguard® Controlled Temperature Inventory Management System: RFID-enabled Controlled Temperature Cabinets for secure, remote access and inventory control of high-value, critical-dose pharmaceuticals.
- Intelliguard® Vendor Managed Inventory System: RFID-enabled Controlled Temperature Cabinets for manufacturers/distributors to continuously monitor remote inventory and provide tracking of products as they are used.
