Who We Are
Kit Check was started after its co-founders discovered the tedious and painful process that hospital pharmacists go through every day. Kevin’s wife happened to be friends with a hospital pharmacist at a large, well known research hospital. After seeing this manual process, it became clear that hospital kit management and management of consumables in the life sciences supply chain needed to be changed.
