Hospitals receive Kit Check’s pharmacy kit processing software and hardware at no cost. The solution is installed by Kit Check technicians and does not require support from internal hospital IT staff. Users only need to purchase tags.

Kit Check’s RFID medication tags are key enablers of pharmacy staff efficiency as well as reduced drug budgets and inventory levels. Kit Check tags are applied as adhesive labels and allow pharmacy technicians to identify hundreds of pharmacy kit medications in seconds by unique identifiers, NDC, lot number and expiration dates. This capability enables users to restock hospital pharmacy kits more accurately and 90% faster than the manual processes used for decades. The tags also support other hospital pharmacy tasks such as recall management and diversion detection.
